Most gadgets we use on our motorcycles have a 12V plug, allowing us to plug in the device using our accessories plug. GPS, phone chargers, music, etc. But sometimes we have the need to use a device that has no 12V plug, but a conventional 110 V AC plug. For example when you bring along your portable computer (or the device mentioned below). Many of these don't have 12V plugs.

So what to do? Use your laptop until it runs out of juice? Or use this Smart AC Automotive Power Strip.

Smart AC Automotive Power Strip

For US$34.99 you can buy this strip, plug it into your 12V outlet on your motorcycle, and use it for devices that eat up power up to 180 W. So don't put your hair dryer on it. It even has USB ports so you can also charge your smartphone.

Meals On Wheels

If you are going to want to use the AC power strip, use it with this device. It's a mini portable oven, called the Hotlogic Mini Personal Oven. When on the road, like camping, it's always nice to have hot food to eat. Instead of building a big campfire and burning your food, why not leave the campfire to roasting marshmallows while using this oven to cook your meals.

It uses less power than a microwave, so you can use the above mentioned power strip to cook your warm meals on the road. Great idea for motorcycle campers.

Price: US$59.99

My only advice when using both devices; keep your engine running. You'll not want to finish your wonderful warm meal, and then when you turn on your bike, find that the battery has run flat. Push-starting a motorcycle with a full belly is not fun.
