98-04 A6 & 99-05 Allroad USB Power Panel



SKU: AudUSBPP Categories: ,

Audi C5 models (’98-04 A6 & ’99-05 allroad) came from the factory with various tech and gadgets however they lacked an easy access mobile phone/tablet/GPS USB Charger. Sure you could use the OEM lighter outlet however its’ location makes it cumbersome to have anything plugged into since it somewhat interferes with the gear shifter.

Cut by Caschy has therefore designed the USB Power Panel which replaces your broken “e-brake”/”popup” cup-holder, navigation controls or console storage cubby (depending upon your car’s specific equipment). The USB Power Panel provides dual USB charging ports to charge your portable devices. The specifications for the charger are as follows:

  • 3.1A [15W] Dual-Port Turbo USB Car Charger charges two electronic devices simultaneously, eg. iPad, iPhone, iPod, MP3 Players, Digital Cameras, PDAs, Mobile Phones and other devices. (Up to 3.1 Amps for one port or split between two ports)
  • Support: MP3 players, ipods, iphone 4s, iphone 4s, iphone 3G, Apple iPad, Mobile phones, PDA, GPS, MP4, Portable wifi, Amazon Kindle fire / DX and other kindles.
  • Apple: iPhone 5 4S 4; iPads and iPods @1A to 2.4A Max
  • Android Phones: Samsung Galaxy S4 S3 S2, Galaxy Note 2, Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX, HTC One X V S; All models @1.0A to 2.0A Max
  • Other Devices: GPS, PSP / Nexus 7, Nexus 10 etc. @0.5A to 2.0A Max (NOT compatible with Samsung Galaxy Tabs)
  • Provide the maximum charge speed to devices for uninterrupted performance of navigation and media streaming utilities.
  • Sophisticated circuit design with over-heated, over-current, over-charging protection.
  • Easy-to-see LED confirms whether USB charger is properly connected.

Optional – NFC (Near Field Communication) tag is available and placed underneath (hidden from view) the top trim piece allowing for the USB Power Panel to also function as an NFC communication tool. Not familiar with NFC? Read more here The tag will be mounted underneath the engraving of choice or if no engraving is chosen, underneath the top trim panel in front of the USB ports (side nearest front of vehicle). Only Samsung TecTiles 2™ are utilized which should be compatible with a variety of different NFC capable devices however, please confirm your device’s compatibility.

What is included:

  • USB Power Panel constructed with 3/8″ CNC cut ABS plastics and your choice of engraving on the 1/32″ CNC cut black colored top trim piece which complements OEM interior colors
  • Heavy duty AGC fuse holder w/ 5A fuse
  • +/- wire leads ended w/Butt splice connectors
  • NFC Tag ready for writing (optional)


  • Start vehicle
  • Plug USB cable into power panel and connect other end to your device for charging.


  • Remove existing OEM console piece (e.g. “popup” cup-holder, navigation controls or the console storage cubby)
  • Feed wiring (14 gauge) from power source/ground to the target console area (recommended power source is the 75x terminal underneath driver’s knee bolster however any +ACC power source is suitable) Note, cigarette lighter is constant +12v therefore, this is not a suggested power source
  • Connect and crimp fed wiring to Butt splice connectors of appropriate lead +ACC(red) & -/Ground(black) of USB Power Panel
  • Clean immediate area around the now “missing” console piece, prepping for good tape adhesion (recommend a simple alcohol prep pad or similar)
  • Orient USB Power Panel with electronics housing nearest the rear of vehicle
  • Tuck wiring into console out of immediate way of USB Power Panel electronics housing
  • Remove red “film” from double-sided tape underneath top piece of panel
  • Install USB Power Panel tilting the panel towards the rear of the vehicle making sure to depress tabs on opposite/front end of USB Power Panel (a small screw driver or similar tool can be used to depress tabs) as it is lowered allowing for the entire panel to “snap” into place. Note, displacement of console carpet/padding and/or wire loom may be required to fully seat the panel. Note, if you find fitment to be too tight, you may cut tension tabs on panel base plates thereby allowing for a looser fit (see photo for reference)
  • Apply medium pressure around top panel piece to ensure it is properly seated and that double sided tape makes contact and good adhesion with center console
  • Connect +/- wiring to source (+ACC) and Ground points
  • Weight 7 lbs
