Charging A Wahoo Elemnt during a ride

I have a Wahoo Elemnt Bolt with the standard handle bar mount. The resulting space between it's USB charge port and the handle bar is not enough to allow me to insert the USB cable during a ride. Is there a mount available that extends a bit farther from the handle bar and allow a USB cable to be connected to my Wahoo?

Same problem here. Since the regular Elemnt (not Bolt) is a little bigger, you can use a regular Elemnt mount and a right angle USB cord and have enough room to charge it. The K-Edge will work fine but so does the Wahoo branded one for less than half the $$.

This one works:

There are two versions. I have the one with the screw in front. It fits some charging cables but not the lumpiest ones.

The other, made for the larger elemnt, should have more room since it mounts above the bar.

Thanks, I've gone with the KOM version, + a right angled cord. I'll have it tomorrow.
