    Charging BMW communicator

    I have a Schuberth C3 with a BMW communication system in it and would like to know if there is a cord available that allows for charging the helmet system from my 2013 RTs battery. Thanks!

    I have a hot wire to my tank bag and a usb outlight that plugs into a cig adapter. I am sure you could do straight from the bat. Look at http://www.powerlet.com/.

    You've checked the operator manual I assume and it shows none available from BMW?

    I've found my Communicator good for nine hours fully charged.

    Can you charge and operate the communicator at the same time?

    Yes, but I am not sure if it prolongs the charge. It takes a while to charge when run down. I charge every evening on a long trip. Then periodically when just riding around home.

    If you can find a place to mount it, one of these works great. I had one on my 2012 GS and it would charge my iPad and phone while in the tank bag. No reason to think it wouldn't charge the communicator while in use as long as you can find a cable that is long enough.

    In your cubby box on the riight there is a USB connector that you can charge it with. I have used it while I have been going down the road.
