    As to the iPhone, well it shows the lighting bolt as if it is charging. Same for the USB in my armrest.

    You may have the right solution, connecting to the cigarette lighter behind the dash. I looked at this when I had the dash off.

    Here is my problem - is there a polarity issue? I would think there is. I want to split the USB charger and power both the iPad and a Garmin VIRB camera. I don't want to fry them.

    Does the VIRB camera charge off the USB? If so, I'd power that there and iPad off cig lighter. I wouldn't split and try to charge both. I think it'd either be really slow charging or you'll blow a fuse.

    Probably sound like an idiot but here I go. What version iPhone? The old ones would charge off any outlet/cable. Newer ones (including iPad 2, need lightning approved cables and outlets

    The VIRB will charge off a Mac USB which I believe puts out 5 volts at 0.5A. So it may work but will do more checking first.

    However I have now found that the iPad requires 5.1 volts and 2.1A. The iPhone needs 5 volts at 1.0A.

    Clearly the 430N is not putting out 2.1 amps. I found one source saying it is 0.5A.

    Walmart sells a 4 way cigarette adaptor by BESTEK that has all these ports. Picture below:

    Timezone most likely. Give them a call and ask them.
