    Default Power draw ninja 650L

    I recently connected a power source to charge my phone, and it seems to be drawing more current than I expected.

    Although it's just a usb charger, and it charges slowly at that, I'm finding the bike is struggling to turn over as fast when I restart the engine between deliveries.

    Pretty sure my battery is only 6 months old or so. Any ideas?

    Is it wired directly to the battery ??... If so it may be inhibiting the charge rate to the battery.
    Hook it up to a 12 volt supply which will only work with ignition on.. Headlight maybe??.

    Yeah its connected via a relay so that it only turns on when the tail light is on, but draws power directly from the battery.

    I'm thinking my battery must just be on its way out.. But I don't think it's that old..

    Either way, the charger only draws 1.5 amps at 12 volts
