The cigarette plug is big and clunky and an eyesore, and an opportunity to catch pant legs on while exiting the aircraft. I love that little panel-mounted usb port, that's exactly what i was looking for.
Also available at many Electronic sales web
I haven't been able to find anything else like that through a bit of googling. They want too much money for what it is, so i'd like to find a cheaper supplier. Do you have any other links?
EDIT - my mistake. All the cigarette lighter usb adapters I have seen in the past are big things that stick way out. I just found out they make cheap cigarette lighter usbb adapters that fit nearly flush with the cigarette lighter face... perfect! http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/produ...3057416f9aen02
