He used outdoor speaker wire to extend the solar panels connection to the circuit box under the gas tank bra and the circuit box to our USB battery. From there, the battery feeds the phone on the handle bars. To do this project, you’ll need:
-One or two, 2 Watt Solar panels
Switchable Mini USB Circuit Box
V11 USB Battery
