I installed a bunch of USB charging ports that are integrated in 120 volt outlets along with several 12volt USB ports. They work great and it is nice to have a charging port wherever you happen to sit on the boat.

Greetings,
IF you've already got a 120V duplex, these are plug and play. No wiring necessary.

And these are all 12v. May change out some the many 120v outlets to include USB outlets also.

Thanks RT - Iíve seen those, but Iím a bit anal about separate plugs, and not having something that can be unplugged. And wanted a separate one in the salon, oops saloon - think Iíll have a drink

Sometimes I lapse into grammar/pedantic mode. Sorry. Apologies.

For the 120 volt outlet I used Leviton T5632-E. It has 2 USB chargers and 2 120 volt outlets.

In reality I suspect it just turns on power to the autopilot.

That gives you good output for charging a couple of phones or iPads. Certainly less power draw than a 120v adapter run off an inverter.

I installed a number of 120v outlets with USB ports built in. They are convenient, but donít provide the amps that yours does. Iíve run an iPad down while being plugged into one of the 120v outlets.

Iíve had the best success with using a good quality 12v plug in adapter. I paid $18 for a 3 port adapter last fall. 1 port is a 18w 3.0 fast charge and then there are two 12w 5v/2.4 amp 2.0 ports. If it burns out, it is easy to pull and replace.

I just did the same in a couple places. The fast charge on both is extremely useful for the iPad and phones. I do wonder if its hard on the battery's in these devices sometimes - if anyone has an answer Id like to hear it. The white usb 120v adapter provided with the phones takes around 2/3 more time to charge the phone and over 3/4 more time to charge up the iPad vs. the fast charge USB I put in. Trying to figure out why the Apple charger would be so inferior.

Guests and Grandkids will really appreciate those! Don't forget to have some spare cables on hand too.
