Optimate sae splitting, run heated gloves AND usb port?


Recommended Posts

Electrical stuff is just magic to me. I really can't get my head around it. Can someone assist? I have an Optimate lead fitted to the bike's battery. I currently run my heated gloves from it. I'd like to be able to run the gloves at the same time as charging my phone. Can I buy an sae splitter to have 2 sae sockets, then the gloves from one and the phone from another?

Many thanks
