Made for the cockpit

Modern cockpits are filled with portable avionics, and keeping these portable devices charged is essential for safe operations. iPads, smartphones, tablets, GPS units, ADS-B receivers, SiriusXM Weather receivers… all need power to do their job.

Now you can keep your devices fully charged with the Flight Gear Dual USB Charger. It was designed by pilots for the unique needs of the modern general aviation cockpit.

3 essential features for pilots:

  • Dual 2.4 amp charging ports. Two USB ports provide up to 4.8 amps (2.4 amps each), giving plenty of power to an iPad and a Stratus at the same time - no more searching for which port is 1 amp and which is 2 amps! 
  • 12 or 24 volt aircraft. Universal design works in aircraft with a range of electrical systems. Easily move it from airplane to airplane without worrying about compatibility.
  • Integrated LED screen. Besides charging your devices, an integrated LED screen displays the voltage of the cigarette lighter socket it is plugged into. When you plug a USB device into it, the screen changes to show the amount of amps your device is drawing. This handy feature makes it easy to see in a glance how many amps your device is pulling. The LED screen will blink if low voltage is detected (below 12 volts or between 18 to 24 volts). 
The smart power management circuit design with over current and over-charge protection keeps your devices safe while providing optimal changing capabilities.

 

Specifications:

  • DC input: 12-24V
  • DC output: 5V/4.8A (Max)
  • Measurements: 3” x 1.7” x 1.7”

Excellent charger
It recharged my Samsung Tab 9.7. The "low voltage" tone is a nice touch. After 3 flights I have nothing bad to say about this product.

Finally, a volt meter
I am a ferry pilot for a company that sells aircraft. How many times have you looked at that ammeter needle and wondered "Is it neutral, or slightly discharging?" Being able to see what the system voltage is, really helps diagnose electrical system health. And, it charges the Stratus and Ipad nicely!

One negative I found is that it will beep indefinitely when plugged in to a 12vdc system. It seems it wants to let you know if the source voltage drops below 24vdc.

Blue LEDs
Although I haven't really used it yet it fits into the cigarette lighter. One of my complaints is the blue LED lights are basically unreadable during the day. Also, if it's plugged in during engine start it does loud beeping to signify low voltage (11.8v). Beeping stops after the engine gets going.

Will this unit cause noise on my radios?
HARLEY M on Jun 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It should not cause noise on the radios.
Has anyone tested this with an IPAD running Foreflight on long flights? My other 2A chargers don't keep up.
A shopper on Jul 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have used this device many times now with my iPad Air running the Garmin Pilot app in a Skylane. It performs as specified delivering 2.4 amps from each output which will keep both devices connected fully charged indefinitely. One possible negative is that on a 12vdc source it will beep continuously. BTW, I had previously used 3 different Dual 2.4 USB Cigarette Lighter Chargers #6588A. Each of them only delivered 1.0 amps per output and therefore unable to hold a charge on a single iPad which would eventual die on a long flight.
Has this been tested for EMI that degrades performance of avionics, especially, but not limited to, GPS navigators?
Larry P on Jul 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I fly a 1956 Cessna 180 VFR only. I fly with an iPad with a Bad Elf GPS. I have not noticed any changes with the Bad Elf or my Garmin 396 GPS. I have not noticed any change to VHF radio static either. I love this charger!
Does this unit have an internal fuse? if so, what is the amp rating?
Jeff D on Jul 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This charger does not have a fuse, but uses a built in "smart circuit" design that protects from overcharging and aslo over current.
Can I use this in my car as well?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can be used in a car.
If the DC input is listed as 12v to 24v, and since airplanes with a 24v battery use 28v internally, won't such an airplane exceed the specs of the device? [On July 3 I had smoke in the cockpit during flight when another brand USB charger started overheating and melting. Proper specs and high quality are necessary in the cockpit environment.]
A shopper on Jul 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This device is designed to work with both 24V and 12 V aircraft system.
Will this work in my car?
John M on Jul 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will work in your car.
What is the wattage output?
Tom B on Jun 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It puts out 2.4 amps on both ports.
The charger for a garmin 696 will work. My car charger for my iPhone won't. Will this work?
Keith B on Jun 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: What are you trying to charge?
I need to know if the reach on the end of the device will reach 1.5" into the socket. If it is shorter than that it will not contact the power at the bottom of the socket?
William C on Jun 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will reach 1.5" into the socket.
