    I have an aftermarket stereo in my Taco and until recently I had the cord coming through one of the holes for the switch blanks. I decided to make something that would look a little nicer, and that would allow me to use my USB-C cable for my phone. Currently it's just a prototype, but I'm working on making it with a nicer finish and using black plastic instead of spray painting it black. I might also try making a regular USB male to female option.

    Pics below and I can share the file if anyone is interested.

    Fast charging is actually not good for your battery.
