Radio / tv static charging station iPhone shamrock 233s

Hello and thanks for reading,
2016 233s, love it.
Charging station with USB ports for charging phone/ iPad under entertainment center. Whenever you charge phone or iPad, static is really bad on radio and tv.
Yes under warranty but dealer bought from is 4 hrs away, closest dealer 1 hr and no guarantee they will do warranty work. If something simple I'd like to try vs bringing to dealer.
Thanks again

most chargers do it, i have the same problem in my work truck, no matter what kind of charger i use (so far) the radio loses most of the stations when its plugged in. i havent noticed if the same happens in my camper, maybe some foil wrapped aroound the back of it or something may fix?

That charging station is the cheapest piece of junk they could find from the lowest Chinese bidder. Ours does the same thing and the 5 volt usb charging connections are poorly regulated and shielded. The poor shielding is what causes the interference, the poor voltage regulation has the potential to cook whatever device you plug into it.

Get a 12 volt plug in charger with usb ports and get a quality one. If you take it in under warranty they'll replace it with the same garbage. You're also going to spend more towing it to the dealer than what a good one costs by a longshot.

Switching power supplies can cause radio interference. Your easiest bet is to find a power supply that used good old transformers and full wave rectifiers to provide the desired DC output.

I kept all of my old AC phone power supplies that were bulky but didn't produce RFI.
