    Does anyone Dual USB in Cigarette Socket?

    ok, mp3car store sells a single usb cigarette socket. But I have to be able to put two inside. Does anyone know how? I can use a hub but it does not look clean. I want it to look OEM as possible.

    Well the same store sells a 4 port USB hub. Maybe you could integrate that into your console or dash.

    Just want to add that I have that single USB cigarette port replacement and it works just great. See my worklog. Do you have onboard USB connectors? You could also purchase these USB Motherboard Header adaptors that connect directly on your board which may be better than using a HUB. You would just need to get USB cable extensions according on where your PC is going to mounted.

    Another question is does anyone know the parts needed to make one of these themselves? You can get USB cables dirt cheap and $25 seems pretty steep.. Would definitely like to have this in my truck but not @ $25..

    You could get something like this at frozenCPU or another parts supply site: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/57...ort_Cable.html

    You can get extension cable also if needed. You may have to fabricate something that will hold the ports in the cigarette hole.

    Like this?



    I found this through googling as an example but I'm sure you can get one cheaper or maybe at your local auto parts store: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=265-236
