Yachting Holiday Gift Guide:
Boating in 2016 has a few more portable electronics involved, and onboard USB ports are quickly becoming standard. The Waterproof USB Charge socket by Scanstrut is a dual socket that can charge just about anything with a USB Type-A connector, from phones and tablets to fish finders and chartplotters. The socket is rated IPX4 for waterproof, and is claimed by the manufacturer to be waterproof with one, two, or zero cables plugged in. The anti-corrosion coating on the circuit board combines with a UV resistant, 316 stainless hinge and spring. Max current is 3.1A, or 2.1A from single sockets. Interested?
