Hi,

I want to install some USB points in the rear of the van (faceplate with a usb module) but I'm having trouble finding 12v to 5v usb step-down that can actually charge iPhones and iPods, all of the ones I've found on eBay state they are not suitable to apple devise charging. Does anyone know where I can get a stepdown that can charge apple devices?

Thanks

We have one of these set into our unit



then we use our normally in car changers/usb multi plugs etc though it
that only gives out 500ma or 1/2 an amp, the iphone and ipad need a 2.1 amp supply T:

also a lot of USB power supplies cause interference, especially to DAB radio's

Thanks for all the responses, I was ideally after a unit without the faceplate. The trouble I have is that the person who owned the van before us has cut holes for a 1 gang and 2 gang standard lightswitch/power socket. The 1 gang unit has a 3 switch light switch in it but the 2 gang is currently empty which is what I wanted to cover over. The travel volts stuff might work so long as its large enough to cover the hole, I will need to check the size with the supplier.
