USB sockets?

Postby cubensis » 27 Jun 2010, 09:30

Anyone ever seen these? I want a USB socket in the style of a cigarette lighter, not one that plugs into a cigarette lighter but one that is just a 12 volt usb socket? They must exist? Thanks in advance!

Diesel is an engine not a fuel.

Yea there 5 volts but i was hoping some simple resistor could impede the flow enough to convert 12v to 5v, Seems like that what the one that you pointed to does that weldore thanks alot, just gonna house that into a piece of wood and then be able to use cigarette lighter and usb connections. Will cut the cigarette lighter plug off and wire it directly, thanks again.
