    Aux power socket

    I seem to recall reading somewhere that the Trek has a aux socket hidden somewhere (by the headstock)?
    is this correct or am I senile (or maybe both). If there is one does anyone have a photo so I can start my search at least knowing what I’m looking for.
    TIA

    Yes possibly both 🙂 !! .
    I did see a spare socket when I had my Trek in bits after its incident.. it's possibly a 12volt outlet but to be honest it'll be a lot less hassle to just wire up what you need direct to the battery and switch/fuse it if you want the peace of mind about battery drain .
    I use my optimate charge connection for my dual USB socket on my bars .

    On mine it was zip tied to the wiring loom on the left side of the head stock. It is open end downwards (probably so it doesn't fill with water). All you have to do is undo the zip tie to get to it. I used mine to power a sat-nav because it is switched so that there is no power with the ignition off. If you wire accessories direct to the battery it will be always live. hardest part was finding somewhere to hide / mount the sat-nav power cable and the doohickey black box that was on the sat-nav lead.
