USB Car Power Bar


Hey All,

Loving this project pages for each user!

Ok, so my first completed project while at Think|haus is a USB Car Power bar.  I had so much fun doing it that I took pictures and created an Instructable about it!

Here is the completed project, click on the link above for a complete description.

From Thinkhaus – Car Charger Project

Since then, I actually have had to do some minor update.

1/ Replace double-sided tape for power center with two nuts/bolts. Ain’t gonna fall off no more in this cold weather :)

2/ Relocate the wire coming out of the 4-way power center to the ‘bottom’ (mounted view) so that it looks neater.

3/ Re-direct the wires so it looks a lot neater and does not interfere with the opening of the console door at all any more. Will get a pic of it later.

Enjoy!

      Hi Sanjayan,

      Sorry for the delayed reply, didn’t see the notice on your reply.

      To answer your question, I am running this through the ‘cigarette lighter’. The 4-way power outlet plugs into that. Then everything else plugs into the 4-way power outlet.

      This kept the wiring simple, if somewhat limited.

      I plan on eventually building a ‘power distribution centre’ to make more hookups available.
