    Got mine and installed it in half a second.

    Just purchased the dual plug from overseas that the OP has but didn't realize it had an LED light in it as well. I'm hoping to install it so that I am able to charge phones and stuff with the key off while camping and whatnot but will the light kill my battery if I don't run my truck for a couple days for some reason? Or can I take the LED out so its not drawing any extra power when not in use?

    I couldn't find any without an led. I was kinda upset about it being blue as well. I'm pretty sure it can be opened up and removed, but the case looked to be sealed up pretty tight. So I just delt with it.
    As for power usage, mine has been on 24/7 since installed. It has even sat for 2 months without being driven. Had no power issues.

    An led has a forward voltage of 3.2v approx and runs at about 20mA. A 12v battery should last a longggggggggg time running that.

    Okay I just wanted to make sure because I might be leaving this summer for work for weeks at a time and JUST replaced my battery so I don't want it to constantly be getting drained down until it's dead.

    I did the install also, the blue LED does not bother me. The flap is closed when I'm not using it so I only see the blue LED when I'm charging something. I wired it so it is only on when the ignition is on. Anything to work in my truck the ignition has to be on, but that is my preference.

    Unfortunately I did not, since it's such a simple and easy mod I didn't even think to write it up . Took me about 30mins total. I'd be glad to help you in any way tho!

    I installed a 400 watt Bestek inverter on back of the arm rest/console. It has 4 USB ports that power up independently of the inverter's on/off switch. The inverter itself is wired to an 85-amp solenoid relay along with all my added-on accessories.

    I also installed a USB port for the passenger in the square black cover under one of the vents.
