I purchased a USB kit to install in the cockpit..either in the panel or on the console. Undecided still. I first needed to make sure that it worked and second, needed to insure the ipad mini and the iphone did not have issue with it. I simply hooked it up to spare battery and tested both for charging and they appear to be just fine. If i install in the panel apron somewhere, I can easily attach Ipad mini to a mount and plug in. Or just charge phone.
