    while installing my USB charger I tested this blank fuse which is powered with the ignition on. Can anyone tell me if it can be used?

    Yeah you can use. Just get to the back of the panel and find the wires for that fuse and use them

    I wired my USB ports to constant power. The led is on all the time, but it would take a veeeeeeeery long time to run the battery dead. Like, probably at least a month. Maybe 2.

    There is no pin hence no wire either to use (connector 1H behind the fuse/juntion box)...add-a-circuit would be the way.

    I did this too. It’s nice to be able put my phone in the truck and let it charge while I mow grass.

    I tapped the “Power Outlet 15A” in first row

    This particular one is on when the ignition is on only. Which is fine because I’ll use it for lights or CB radio.

    Good find, btw. I guess I’ll test some other blank fuse ports there to see if they’re hot with lights, etc.
