Flight Display Systems’ new Dual USB Charger has received FAA Parts Manufacturer Approval. The Dual USB Charger provides 5.2V DC for full power and fast charging capability for carry-on devices such as media players, smart phones, tablets, and other personal electronics.
The USB Charger also features an internal fan for cool operation. Keeping the component cool means that it will provide a consistent power supply to the charging devices, company officials said. This new model also has a 2-pin Molex connector, which is easier to install, officials noted.
“This is such a simple item, but very important.” says David Gray, President of Flight Display Systems. “It offers convenience to passengers by letting them arrive with their devices fully charged.”
Personal electronic devices can be used in flight while they charge. The Dual USB Charger is compatible with the latest Apple, Android, and Windows personal electronic devices. It converts standard aircraft 28V to 5.2V. The Dual USB adapter does not provide data communication or syncing, only power.
