  • USB cable or hub with cover/cap?

    I'm redoing my dash piece. Currently it has an imon and a slot DVD drive but i'm thinking about adding a USB port to it and cleaning it out a bit.

    Any of you guys know of a USB cable/hub that includes neat little covers for the USB 'hole'? I was hoping of something with a little flap that can cover the USB port when not in use.

    mp3car.com sells a USB port that replaces your 12V cig lighter hole and it comes with a flap that covers it.

      Thought about that, but it's too large. It would also ruin the dash piece i'm making.

      I really just need a small black plastic cap that can cover the port so it doesn't show.

          Thanks for the link Quantum.

          They all look better than your generic USB extension cables, although none have a 'cap' or cover to them

            I was searching for the same thing and I just found these:

            I am wondering if anybody has seen any LED equipped USB caps or I should call them USB controlled lights?

            I am hoping to find some that have a driver so I can program them to turn on or off, change the color of the light and maybe even program a lighting sequence. That could be very useful for creating warning signals (eg flashing red), alarm signals (fast flashing) or ok status (steady green), etc.
