Default usb power to panel

anybody know a way to rig up a powered usb port to your panel, strictly for providing USB power to devices that take it? Need to somehow convert convert the voltage from the 12V aircraft power bus to the appropriate voltage for USB, and then feed this in to the appropriate pins on a a female USB port.
Most of the car USB-cigarette lighter adapters I have seen have the circuitry inside the moulded plastic, so it wouldn't be straight-forward to hack one of these for this purpose.
