Dual USB Dash Mount Outlet?

Need a bit of help finding a thread that showed a nice permanently mounted dual USB charging port. I've done a thread search using various terms but cannot find that thread.

If anyone has spotted something useful that's intended for permanent installation I'd appreciate a link or image. My preference would be the mounted device over something "portable" such as I have now.

I've looked through this forum and Gadets too----I KNOW its here somewhere!

TIA

I just switched mine over to these a Fast Charge - Dual USB Charger Socket Mount part # 1045. These have about the highest charging current available and also a very low parasitic current draw (1mA)



Amazon.com : Blue Sea Systems Fast Charge 4.8A Dual USB Charger Socket Mount, 12V/24V : Sports & Outdoors

On a plus or minus side it does not have a indicator LED , they also have something similar for a Contura Switch mount.

I set those up in most of the vehicles I work on. I also installed a combo usb/cig port in the cargo area for a portable fridge. They are great!

Got the same one on the Driver's side as pictured above and, in my old van, I added another one on the passenger side...

You may end up destroying part of the dash and some clips, etc. but it will all go back together just fine.

I have plenty of extra dash trim panels so that's no worry.

Scott what brand are those you show---they seem to have LED's inside the ports.

That's a big plus in my opinion.

yes, I agree no LED was a plus.

I have the kind that gcvt shows in his picture, and just smashed the LED with a little dental pick. Now there is no constant draw.
