I've got nothing to plug into them so was thinking it would be much more useful if we had a few usb sockets for our various gadgets.
Has anyone got any ideas for doing this. Everything I can find so far is for plugging into a cigar lighter socket.

I did find some fixed wired USB sockets on eBay a few years ago but I dont have the links anymore.

I dont personally recognize that socket as most normally have to parallel slots

They put them in tugs and boats many years ago, and you can still buy the plugs for them. Mostly for B&W TV connections, they wont take loads of amps.

Thanks but I need 12v not 240v


Might have to go for these but everything else in Baz is caravan beige so they'll stand out a bit.
I think you can get the frames in a bronze colour if that helps.

Not long enough!
Pity that screw is through the middle of your old sockets as you could have just drilled the right size hole and fitted one of these in the middle:rolleyes:

eaby traders often push the price to ridiculous levels when they are out of stock its some thing to do with the way ebay charge them for listing a new item
