3BR Powersports www.3brpowersports.com is offering riders the sealed USB charging solutions they have been waiting for to charge their GPS or Smart Phone while on the road or on the trail. 3BR’s TAPP, TAPP-Lite and Panel-TAPP solve the dual problems of a wet, dirty environment and unpredictable electrical power in ways never seen before in powersports electronics. A patented, weatherproof connector system is included that works with all USB charging cables and the robust electronics are professionally designed to work with the modern USB charging requirements of iPhone, iPad, Droid, Samsung, LGChem and Blackberry.
The TAPP is 3BR’s solution for many ATVs and motorcycles. TAPP products come with a patented universal mounting system that adheres to various sizes of handlebars or even flat surfaces. Input voltage can range from 8 to 16VDC while the TAPP provides clean power for your iPhone, Garmin or Lowrance GPS. There is a replaceable sealing cap that can be left on indefinitely when there is no device connected for charging. The power cord is reinforced, the input power is fused, and all of the materials are UV-rated for direct sunlight. TAPP systems are made with advanced Brulloy not just PVC rubber, for advanced durability. The TAPP CAP is necessary to complete this system. The TAPP CAP is a sealing cap that fits over the charging cord for the device and mates to the TAPP charger housing.
The PANEL TAPP is perfect for UTVs. It occupies a small amount of space in the dashboard and installs with a spin-on backing nut. The patented design will fit panel thicknesses up to ¾” (19mm) and features a replaceable sealing cap. PANEL TAPP will give serious off-roaders confidence to keep their smart phone or GPS charging while they enjoy their sport. All TAPP products are designed and manufactured to the highest quality standards both electrically and mechanically for years of use in rugged conditions.
