Dual USB Charger for Toyota Switch Socket
These USB Chargers are a fine piece of Solid Kit.
When you when you hit the road for a trip, you have smart phones, tablets, iPads, GPS navigators, camera’s, high powered LED torches which all charge from USB. Most vehicles come with too few USB charge ports. Cigarette lighter plug in USB chargers are unsightly and unreliable.
The Dual USB Charger is a perfect fit for the standard Toyota 40mm x 20mm switch socket. They feature similar form to the Toyota switches.
Also available without LED’s.
New model includes enough cable to get you over to the fuse box in a Hilux, Landcruiser 100, Landcruiser 79 Series, Prado 120, or FJ Cruiser.
Fuse tap adapter included, and negative cable terminated with ring for easy earth attachment (see install tips for more information).
Installation of the Dual USB Charger is a snap (quite literally).
Once your switch blank is removed, it is quite simply a matter of pushing the Dual USB Charger in place.
They are nice snug fit, so be prepared to put a little pressure on them. Once in place they are held tight by locking tabs and do not budge.
The wiring is as simple as connecting two wires. The positive wire is connected to your preferred power source. You have several options here:
a) Connect to an “IGN” source to have the Dual USB Charger come on when you switch on your car
b) Connect to an “ALWAYS ON” source if you prefer to leave them on the entire time. Current Draw is 1.7 Ah per day when left in standby “ALWAYS ON”
The harness included with the charger is our specifically designed fuse tap harness. Simply plug in to the fuse box by finding a spare slot, or replacing one of your existing fuses.
The Dual USB Charger is compatible with the models listed below. The 40mm x 20mm switch size is very common in Toyota, and is used extensively throughout the entire range. If in doubt, simply measure your existing switches/sockets. If they are approximately the size they will fit.
