Finally got round to fitting a charging port to the K12 today. I got this for the princely sum of £2.99 from an ebay seller in the Phillipines.

It arrived today (after only a couple of weeks) so fitted it straight away. :cool:
The lower dash panel to the right of the steering wheel had a spare switch position so fitted it there...

I used one of these piggy back fuse holders to get the power feed from the fuse box directly below the panel......

and picked up the earth from an M6 bolt that secures the OBDII socket support.
 
Nice I often wonder why that space was empty only thing is where do you mount the phone I would guess on the dash someplace that's handy right
 
My version of same issue and I rewired original cigarette lighter socket that it has constant 12V, regardless position of ignition switch.

Today's upgrade on my Micra. I changed 12V power outlet on dash to give power all the time. Instead normal way, you have power when ignition is on. Also I added to center console dual USB-outlet with voltage meter. I made spacer ring from 20mm plywood to fit it on center console, in behind there isn't enough space other vice. Unfortunately these vehicles don't have easy to view charging indicator.
