    Has anyone seen a product that replaces the cig lighter receptacle under the hvac panel with dual usb for charging? (4.8a) without cutting wires? Looking for completely plug and play.

    Tried searching & google but due to the pretty generic terms “usb” “swap” “lighter” I found nothing

    I replaced the one in the center console. I didn't cut the wires, you can remove the original connectors out of the plastic "L" and connect them to the new one.

    Yeah that’s a good idea.
    Do you know how the fwd one is connected by chance? I just had the dash apart yesterday and forgot to check like an idiot...

    after I posted this I found some blade connection dual usbs. Probably the easiest & cheapest route

    There's a build thread along similar lines to this I thought I had watched but couldn't find.

    Anyways... Be basically swapped the one on the dash and in the center console to both be higher amps/dual USB in a super clean way...

    Why not try to find something like this?
    https://griffintechnology.com/us/powerjolt-dual-universal-micro

    I've had mine for three years now and it'll charge an Ipad and my Samsung S8 at the same time. It said to only be 5 volts @ 1amp but it charges my phone from 50% to full in about 20 minutes, 10% ipad to full takes about an hour though.

    I replaced my old USB with a Bluesea fast charge dual USB. I didn’t cut any wires just ran it to the battery. A7820CDE-66F0-4CCC-9C84-76CB4E1FE522.jpgE67A6CE0-BB29-4CA1-AF43-20247A385061.jpg
