On my long list of things to do, I want to install a USB receptacle in the console so I don't have wire hanging from the dashboard and getting hung up on the gear shift. I'm thinking the power source can be from the power seat circuit?
also thinking if it's inside the console cell phone can be put in the console and not be in plain sight. the bad thing, it will trap heat as we know, cell phones get quite warm when they're charging.

That's my input for today!

My credo
Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
When installing the usb, add a small cooling fan, like the ones used in computer towers, to the inside of the console.

That one definitely does the voltage work internally.
