USB in console, JKUR

Can you use the USB in the console to charge a phone?

It will charge at 500mA. For some phones, thats not even enough to break even. These newer phones can charge at 2.4 Amps or even more. I like the Aukey USB adapter. Its very low profile. http://a.co/dmWSUFW $8 on Amazon

I put a similar adapter to the one Frydaddy posted in the lighter plug in the console.

I keep my hotspot on it and also charge my phone that way. The usb in the console is low power and won't charge fast if at all.
