Ok, first - I use most of the 12 volt sockets especially the one at the dinette. I have a dometic 12 volt cooler I plug in there and fill it with bottled water.
I also have a decent 12 volt vacuum. Cool to have the 12 volt outlets all around (as well as the 120 volt).
In my experience with USB wires, plugs and kids - they will snap them off right at the plug point. Especially at the location under the dinette seat. My 12 volt cooler is often being kicked out of the socket.
I was going to install the multi-outlet (outlet with the USB) for the 120 volt outlets in the kitchen but thought better of it. I have a box full of 12 volt to USB adapters for most all or needs. In fact, my truck had the USB Ports but I still use the bulky adapter. Old fashioned I guess.
I like the concept but I don't see it as a "WOW" item personally.
I have plugged my phone USB 12 volt adapter into the 12 volt socket at the dinette seat and used a can coozie to hold my phone in the table drink holder. The coozie keeps the phone from bouncing around.
I will also mention that "we" totaled a tablet in a slideout - moving the slide back in, who knew the tablet was in the path. We now check the slide paths top to bottom.

I am gonna have to get a few of those myself. They look like they would work really well.

I like it and the responses about the 120v outlets in the bedroom have me planning an addition. I too have the wife's cable running across me.

We actually have this feature in the new Sunseeker 2450s we just bought and we love it for the charging. But I would have preferred not to have gotten the small net, as we only use it for phones and that space was perfect for mounting a clock or pics of the grandkids. Consider letting people have a choice about that. LOL - I have been trying to figure out what the heck that net could have been for. Now I know.

DYK640 if you have the 12v model, could you get a part # or manufacturer, I'd appreciate it. I would really like to get one or two of them. I couldn't find anything like it on the web.

Bclemens...earlier you said the 4 ports would be of the 2.1 amp type. I've always limited my phones to the 1 amp connections and only hooked up Tabs to the 2.1 amp slots.
Is there any danger to phones from a 2.1 amp slot? If so...I'd be sure to include both types of jacks OR put a big idiot sticker there!
Anyway... other than that ...good idea. Right now in my G'Town all I have is a single dashboard cigarette plug. I'm splitting that into 2 ...then plugging in the GPS to one side and plugging in a small inverter with both AC & USB plugs since there are none of those up front. Probably would blow a fuse if I ever tried to use it all.
Providing an alternate way to charge stuff is a good matter what class!

We have this feature in our new Forester that we picked up last week. After our maiden voyage this past weekend I have to give it a big thumbs up! I must not have the discriminating taste of OC, or it could be that it is only my new mobile house <25 nights a year.
Please keep testing new ideas and thanks for the Dyson portable vacuum, it is a perfect addition for on the road. I of course have a few pet peeves that really should 'improved' to call out but that will be in a separate thread.
Bottom line, thanks for the charging station.

I still stand by my original comment, it's crude and I wouldn't want it in/on my camper if they paid me(which they wouldn't of course).
