USB Port

Gday guys, a long time since i have posted. I have been outrageously busy and if I kept monitoring the sight as much as driving my jeep I would have no relationship

Has anyone had a problem with their USB port. When I plug my iPhone in it doesn't register and start charging the battery. The rear ports charge so it is definitely a problem with the front one. Might be time to drop it in to servicing

Re: USB Port

Hi,
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but the front usb port is data transfer only while the back ones are charge only ports. Sometimes if you plug your iphone in it will show the charging icon on the phone but it wont take any charge. Something to do with how the ports are wired.

Re: USB Port

So I have my iPod plugged in there as a music source. So you are saying it will go flat and I need to separately charge it ?

That is crazy ! Surely !

I will check now, its been in a few weeks and is still working so I am now very curious.....

Re: USB Port

When I plug my iPhone 5 into the front USB port it displays the charging icon, and charges the phone too. Sounds like a problem with your front USB connection.

You have to laugh, it's back working

Not sure what is going on with yours Redldr, but it should be charging your iPhone. Mine has done it from day one except for this little hiccup. I often get in my car with little battery and after half an hour or so it is at full charge.

Re: USB Port

The front charges, but not very much, it is possible for a phone to be using more than it is getting in charge from the front USB.

Re: USB Port

USB always puts out power, should be 5v and most likely 0.5amp. This might not be enough to charge a modern smart phone with the screen running doing something like navigation. If it's not providing power I reckon there is a fair chance of something like a damaged pin and we taking it back for warranty - just prey it doesn't need parts ordered.

Re: USB Port

You can buy a USB voltage tester for under $10 from the Interwebs.
As Jasman has said, All USB's put out voltage, but many newer smartphones need above 1amp to charge and Tablets need over 2amps.

I use a cig light/USB adaptor under the centre armrest for charging my phone, and leave a 320 gig hard drive for music plugged in to the USB in the cubby hole.
