Re: Heated grips DIY

First off, can we have a picture or two, source, cost and some specs? But I think it would be worth doing a write-up anyway, myself. MW

Re: Heated grips DIY

I'm interested in fitting the Tecno Globe Gold heated grips, because they have the switch integrated to the grip, which I consider a plus:
Tecno Globe Gold Heated Grips

Could they be connected "directly" to an active power source ?
Or should they be connected to an auxiliary 12v battery ?
Could this auxiliary battery be charged with the traction battery, like in a Nissan Leaf ? (hence avoiding connecting an extra charger)

Re: Heated grips DIY

Finally I installed heated grips on my Vectrix Li+

Oxford heated gripes for scooters.

Cut up the old handles with a screwdriver to take off the handlebar.

I decided to put the switch on the handlebar cover in a discrete position.

Placing the LED power indicator . Green = low temperature. Red = high temperature.

Pass the wiring for the steering column

And binds to the wires that connect the low lights

Storage all cabling

Minimum Temperature = green light

Maximum Temperature = rede light

You have powered them with low beam wire system, haven't you? How many wh do they consume? Were they expensive?

Re: Heated grips DIY

A slight bump :/

A quick glance on the specs and they pull roughly 4amps, can the low beam wiring handle that current?

Re: Heated grips DIY

It may be able to handle these extra 50W, however it's better to use an independent DC-DC,
