Yepper.  But check your owner manual or look under the seat to see how big the fuse is.  I just use mine to power my GPS.  I wouldn't run and heated gear off it.  I installed a battery tender pig tail that is fused direct from the battery, that I use for my heated vest and air pump.  Good luck,  Racer

I have a similar USB installed in my 2019 cb500x, it is connected to the auxiliary socket prepared for this purpose, it works well and it disconnects when I remove the key from the motorcycle.
It fit well into the hole prepared for the original Honda 12v socket.

Could this same OP in the front be used to power LED lights AND a USB charger?

I just installed one off Amazon.  Works great and no adapter needed to power my phone.

Thanks, I haven't picked up my bike yet  :002:.  It loos like it is indeed meant for small accessories, like a 2.1A USB charger, although it could run two of these (drawing 0.68A each):

but not everything at the same time.
