I finally got around to installing some double USB ports and cig ports.
I needed one USB for the Ipad, one for the Iphone to run Pandora, and extras for friends.

Have you tried charging your iPad yet? I found that the USB wasn't providing enough juice even in the 2.1 A socket as the iPad needs to recognize it as such (see this for explanation www.wired.com/2013/12/charging-devices-faq/ ). I ended up using one of the plug in types to go into the cigaret lighter plug.

No I haven't tried it with the Ipad yet.
But so far none of the cigarette plug ones have worked either!
It always says charging not supported by this device.

AFAIK, since iOS 7-dot-0-dot-something they check if the current fluctuates within a certain acceptable range. Cheap chargers have more fluctuation and often will trigger the error message.

I use the same charger however the one I use is also coupled with a LED Voltmeter. I have 3 of them on the Boat, both Helms and in in the salon, I like that at a glance I can see the house batter voltage at all times.

I have no problem charging an Ipad Air 2 that is what the 2.1A is for

Buy for $19.98 here on Amazon (with Prime

The issue is if you use it for navigation for a couple of hours and the charger can't keep up with the drain.

That is why you also keep a external USB charger on board that can charge up to 4a spesd it will keep up. However You cam aslo install a small inverter near the helm and power the ipad off of that using your 110v Charger. That's what I do when I use the Ipad Navionics

I just ordered one from ebay.
I was hoping to eliminate the adapter, but I guess 2.1 won't be enough.
Oh well, glad I have to cig outlets, one for Ipad, one for garmin 60csx.

Good idea.

I just ordered the unit with the cig lighter on the left and the two USB ports to the right and the volt meter in the center.

That plug in one I shared can keep up, no inverter needed.

I tried several of these (similar) USB style plug-in chargers on the cigarette lighter at the helm. Three of them blew the internal fuses immediately, before I realized it was the cigarette lighter itself. I have another cigarette lighter near the galley and the usb chargers work fine there. However, the cigarette lighter at the helm powers a remote search light just fine! I don't really know why this is so.

That's weird. So the same USB worked fine in another cigarette lighter after you put a new fuse in?
Maybe replace that cigarette socket?

I believe it has to be an official "apple" product or it may not work
I have found that after market "iPad / iPhone chargers don't work

I have the ipad air2.
2.1A charging *can* barely keep up with the navionics,
depending on the "active" ipad features. The ipad
features variable power consumption: the more running,
the more power consumed.

I often run: bluetooth, wifi, location services (gps), music, etc
and the 2.1A charging does NOT keep up. If I turn off
wifi and bluetooth, 2.1A charging does, barely, keep up.

The 4A charger suggested by the russian is a good way to go -
I'm ordering one.

On another thread, sarah mentioned that her ipad, sitting in the
sun, running navionics, on a hot ambient day, would overheat
and demand to be shutdown.

I have seen this too! The more features that are running, the hotter
the ipad will run. In my overheat scenario, I can hear a sound,
similar to an internal fan. I've noticed that the power consumption
is greater when the ipad is overheating. If any of those things
happen, the 2.1A charging does not work to keep up.

The navionics is wonderful. I augment it with a bunch of "check lists"
in the ipad Notes application. I have checklists for startup/shutdown
of a variety of tasks: running the Hino's or genset, windlass, davit winch,
heading to locks, docking, etc. The family knows about the checklists
in case they needed to do it without me.

Navionics is so good that I was motivated to find a similar app for
car travel. Navigon app from Garmin is the "navionics for the car".
Car has same problem with 2.1A charging... ;) Thanks crazy russian
for that amazon link!
