the power outlet has a low fuse rating so you can't run thing with motors like a tyre pump - it's just for phones, satnavs and other low power, electronic devices - there are 2 fuse boxes, both under the rider's seat. The fuse positions are detailed in the owner's manual - page 6-32 in the Tracer/UK version of the manual, page 7-32 in the N America manual.
 
You will need a 2A fuse in position 6 for Aux fuse 1. Don't be tempted to use a large fuse as the wiring to the socket may not be able to take the current for a 15A tyre pump like the Slime Power Sport - these should be run directly from the battery using croc-clips or a separate heavy duty socket.

Thanks, its for running a peaklife gps, rating of 1.5amp, the cigarette adapter Tha came with it got blew as well not sure what happened.. Might have got water on it, wonder is there a rubber cover that could be purchased to cover against rain when in use.

the socket itself it quite able to cope with rain - same one that I had on my Super Tenere and the way it is designed, rain cannot get at the positive connector - the bike's earth is the frame so getting wet does not matter.
 
You may need to rainproof the satnav connecors - if it's a USB type then you can get a rubber boot - one was supplied with my 12V to 5V socket

That sux, I keep a tire patch kit and Slime pump in my tailbag. Good to know I should't plug it into the socket like I would my other bike. I think it has alligator clips also. Thx for the heads up.

I second that thanks, I probably wouldn't have even given it a thought until I was stuck in the middle of nowhere with a flat.  One more reason to add an SAE pigtail.  That's been on the list for awhile, maybe I'll go do that now. <wanders off>

The fuse for the Aux socket is located behind the right front panel (Indicator) on UK bikes. I know this as tried running a compressor on it the other day.!!
Same here. The socket doesn't agree with compressors it seems. That sucks.

I blew it running my iPhone with the TomTom app. I have since hard wired (with appropriate fuses) both my Satnav and mobile phone charger.
That's interesting... I've run both a TomTom GPS unit on the outlet as well as my iPhone running any number of different GPS / trip tracking programs, and have never had that kind of a problem.
