USB/12V Charge/Power Station Install

I haven 09 Wildcat and back then they didn't install USB charge stations.

This has the following:
On-off switch for entire assembly
2 Usb charge ports
12 V cigarette lighter port
Voltage monitor (measure voltage at battery and note difference, I lose about 0.3 volts from the 25 foot of wire from battery to this panel).

In this pic, I hadn't secured the voltage meter yet and I still needed to level the entire setup..its a little crooked but easily fixed.

Cost was about $13 from Ebay plus wiring and terminals. VERY EASY TO DO!

Looks like they went up in price. Here are some links to try. The first link is for a 3 port which doesn't have the on/off switch.

Here is the one that has the switch so you don't run down battery with volt meter being on the whole time.

Just installed one similar. Thank you for sharing the idea! I tied mine into a spare fuse slot on my main panel. Super easy!
