At least one with the "cigarette lighter" plug and a couple USB type. 

USB plugs are NOT 12V normally, they are typically 5VDC. You could ruin a lot of expensive electronics connecting to a 12V version should you choose to install one that way.

There are many 12-volt powered 5-volt USB power supplies available, just as there are many 120-volt to 5-volt USB power supplies available. Off hand, I don't recall ever seeing a 12-volt outlet with 12-volt USB configured outlet.

Go ahead!! But if you examine them you will find they have circuitry to reduce the 12V to 5V on the USB side. What I was concerned about was what I thought might be a suggestion to wire a 12V supply to that type of plug, not a commercial product that had that feature built in.  Just my bad interpretation of the initial wording, I guess.... :-[

Maybe I got side tracked. New TC I am looking at (no AC) has wall built 12v port with 4 usb. Sorry if I confused things.

Brad reminded me of a bigee for me.  I wish I had a thermostat for the basement air on the dash.  I hate having to get up and go adjust the air while driving :o

Thanks for reminding me Steve.  I would like the same for the same reasons and to also shut off the air before I shut down the generator - from the drivers seat.
