@Alien Rides that's more work than you need to do. You can tap anywhere that routes back directly to the DC/DC converter. The easiest to find is the +12 going to the hazard light switch -- in the deck, it connects to the flasher module that's just loose in there with all the wiring near the front of the deck internals. Here's a picture of the flasher:

Find that, follow the power side (labeled 5-24V), it will connect to a 2-wire cable that runs up the shaft to the hazard switch. One of the two wires will connect to the flasher module, the other wire in that shaft cable connect to the DC/DC converter. Tap away at that point for as much as many things you need, provided you don't exceed the power capacity of the converter. If it's not labeled, you might have ping MM to get the specs.

To tap, I've used these:

Taps in-line without having to cut/splice the wire, and is filled with silicone grease to protect from environmental exposure.

Don't know where to get them all by themself, as I bought mine as part of a splicing kit from Amazon:

Curious is the thunder waterproof? Would it be okay through a puddle, or light rain? Or how about after a snow where the ground is wet and cold? 

Wondering if the thunder is something I could use it all the time, or just something to take for a cruise on a nice day.

Im in Michigan where the weather is constantly changing, not as lucky as you lot in Cali lol!

I think it's good enough to ride in a light rain, but I wouldn't want to ride it in a heavy downpour. There's additional work you can do in waterproofing, including adding additional silicon for where wires go into the deck. Overall it's a pretty versatile scooter, but not fully waterproof like the Boosted Rev/Weped CT/Weped SS.
