RADIO NOISE

By Myles

from Annapolis

Cons

  • Produces RF noise when changing any device.

Best Uses

    Comments about West Marine Surface Mount Dual USB Charger Socket:

    Installed and tested on my boat. The more power drawn the more noise produce on my FM radio. I have a small Belkin 12v adapter that does not do this on the same circuit.

    I installed the outlet in the aftermarket rollcage of our 1998 Jeep Wrangler. Allows the charging of a GPS and phone which the older vehicle didn't offer. The outlet alonge with a switched LED dome light really inhance the interior of the vehicle.

    Wiill not drive my iOttie One Touch Inductive Charger

    • Nice build quality

    Cons

    • Optomistic current rating

    Best Uses

      Comments about West Marine Surface Mount Dual USB Charger Socket:

      I used this for a custom install in my F-150. I use marine equipment on my road vehicles whenever possible.

      I suppose I should have tested this first, but I was on a bit of a tear building out my truck and getting it prepped for a trip. After I got it all installed I found it will not adequately power my iOttie. This is rated at 2.1 amps which is the power requirement for that pedestal but there is no way it is actually delivering a full 2.1 amps. Plugging in the iOttie the light flashes red and won't charge the phone. Yes I was using a good USB cable. Yes I have good voltage to the device.

      It charges my phones/tablets just fine if I plug the cable into the phone. I ended up using a different method to power my iOttie. I'm disappointed about it, but this little console plug still pimped my ride.

      Ok so far

      Comments about West Marine Surface Mount Dual USB Charger Socket:

      Works so far, installation wasn't too bad. Pleasing to the eye, has a little green light on all the time though. You can't really see it when you cover it with the cap. Not really sure if that is needed.
