Smart Phone GL1500 installation questions

So I was lucky enough to get the new S4 phone this weekend. I mounted it to the center consul with velcro vs buying a mounting bracket. I ran a cass tape adapter up so i could run it thru the stereo. This works out great since I can run Pandora and google nav. My question is that since the phone has a micro usb port is it safe to adapt a car charger to the bikes accessory block or something?

Absolutely, however in the interest of convenience, why not add a cigar lighter / power port to the bike, then you can plug in most anything. I've added two. One in the left passenger pocket and one in the right driver's pocket.
