Bring your Vanagon into the 21st century! This clever snap-in addition to your dashboard replaces that dim (and no longer available) map light with a couple of new-fangled USB charging ports. One port nestles into the dash, and the other hides away in the glove box for discreet charging.

This functions like a standard USB charger. It can distribute up to 3A between the two ports—enough to charge two phones at once!

Kit Includes:

  • 12V to 5V USB converter
  • Two 5V/3A USB charge ports
  • Custom-printed nylon mounting plate
  • Screws to connect the charge port to the face plate
  • Detailed installation instructions

Install notes: We have found that the size of the map light opening can vary by up to a millimeter. Very minor filing may be required to seat the faceplate nice and flat.
