|Mafhplayer7715||I've been thinking about doing the same. What is involved in swapping out a USB socket for the 12v socket?|

|Flipper||Check out Burnsmoto- I have a USB port I installed on my Motorcycle- easy to install. May be one of many solutions.|

I found this online 12v USB Built in Sockets | Dun-Bri Group Blog
And this http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Sea-Dual-...olt+usb+socket

|BaldwinJeep||I guess I should have been clearer...I have the power point in the center console, but I want something that my 3 kids sitting in the back seat can use without me having to interact with them. LOL. They say "Dad" way too much.|

|Bosman||It is hard to find the USB plug. It's beside the power port/cigarette lighter. Stick your hand in and feel around for it. It's on the INSIDE of the console FRONT wall.|

That's insane that we both asked the question at nearly the same time.
Great minds and all that....

|Bosman||It will not bother your U-connect. Your I pod will work better run through the USB in the center council than Blue tooth. Any other devices you plug in will only affect U-connect if you want it too.|

|jdyowa||Mine is a 2010 JKU sport. It's got some upgrades but not that. I would really like to install some usb ports but I have't found any yet. They need to be thin I suppose. looking for ideas|

|SilverSport||Unless Jeep changed something for 2013, you should also have a 12V outlet inside the center console.|

It would have been nice of Jeep to install a power point in the back of the center console. I may just end of doing that and buying a USB charger for it.
I'm not sure what would happen if I plug in a USB hub to UConnect system. I'm thinking it would cause issues. I keep my iPod plugged in to the center console and just need the additional for charging.

|R4D4R||Isnt there a 12v in the back? If you just want it for charging get a 12v to USB 5v adapter.|

|rfortune||Do you not have one inside the console? If you do there is a nifty little cutout to run cables out the passenger side of the console that you could use as an extension to a little 4 port usb hub then attach it wherever you want.|

Search the posts for USB. Found one in whichntheynimstalled a port over the rear seat cup holders. Here's mine with a less OEM install on the seatbelt locks.

Has anyone installed a USB port for charging phones, etc in their Jeep? I'd like to install one in the back of the center console so my kids can charge their phones and tablets.
