    12v socket

    I have a 2017 Highlander with the 12v socket mounted in the left front cowling. I bought a dual port usb plug to enable me to power my phone as a satnav, but the plug doesn't seem to work once plugged-in. By this I mean it fits nicely, but I get no power to the phone. The 12v socket is working, as I plugged a tyre inflater into it to check, but the usb plug looks like it is too 'short' and I'm assuming the contact on the bottom isn't reaching the one in the 12 socket. Anyone else had this? Looking at the usb plugs on Amazon, where I bought it, it makes no mention of 'length' so are they all the same size?  :027:

    If you have a look at my post on the same subject you will see photos of my installation with a USB conertor in situ and working. I have measured it for you and it is 60mm length in total but 42mm the bit that plugs in.

    Thanks for that Ddubz. I seem to have a shorty USB plug then  :110:
    Mine is only 400mm long in total, and there is a lip on it so probably only 380mm goes into the socket. Seems I need a longer one. Maybe I need to get down to Maplins to actually view/measure one. Sigh... :006:
    Unless anyone here knows of one that does fit in the fitted Honda socket?

    Might have found a 60mm one on Amazon, less than a fiver so I'll give that a blast.  :047:

    They sell them in Poundland for err a Pound. But they are only single USB not a double one like mine. Wilkinson or The Range also sell them.  Got mine on Ebay years ago.
