Multiple options for hardwiring and worth it but you could also just get one of the smaller power packs and velcro strap or cable tie it to the bars and run a short cable for when you need it. The benefit is you get to use it other times as well...
The drawback is you have to mount it and charge at night but not really a big downside there IMO.
They are almost always on sale somewhere this time of year and can usually charge a phone 1-2 times between charges. My phone lasts pretty long but I don't use it for gps so just streaming music...
