12 volt three way outlet for all day long phone charging and then here is a 110 volt power strip that has chargers plugged in .

All of this stuff is always wired up and plugged in and so everyday I fire up my genset for a hour everything charges including my house battery.
Genset is in the rear bumper

The black box holds a electric shaver that is hardwired , blue tooth headphones hang on the box and the charger cable plugged in there too.
Internet hot spot in the middle.

Haven't got around to adding horizontal conduit to my power cord

Good 12 volt outlets
Three 10 amp 12 volt outlets with four usb outlets and a voltmeter .
They have blade fuses built right into the male plug!
I think the total amp rating of the usb side is 6 amps.

I’ve had a dedicated Charging Station for years. The dividers are useless but the charging works great for an assortment of gadgets.

Travel Trailer Upgrade: for my USB charging ports

Truck Camper Upgrade: More USB and 12v Ports
