always on usb

Is there a way to change at least one USB port to always be hot on my 2014 WK2? I was thinking about rigging a 12v to 5v USB (with fuse) directly to my battery, but then thought, na, there is probably a better way.

Any tips would be appreciated.

I think the accessory plug in the center console is anyways on. You'll need a phone charger though.

I have my USB phone cord to charge the phone, plugged into the outlet that is on the end of the center console facing the rear seat, below the heat/ac controls and I believe it is hot all the time?! Think so? Dave

The one inside the center console compartment is always on.

Are you referring to the one in the dash? There's no USB port in the center console between the front seats - only a normal 12v plug.
