Jim- Yes! That's what I was thinking. Is the USB port powered via the existing wiring in the curly cord, or with a separate (heavier gauge) wire? Vince



It is on the 28V circuit for the map light which is in the coiled cord. I use an iPad Mini which draws a maximum of 2.1A@5V. That translates to less than 0.5A at 28V. Just about any circuit can easily handle that additional load. In a 14V aircraft the load would be less than 1A, still very minimal.

I meant how is it mounted? What does it look like when you remove the iPad the the plate it is attached to. What holds that plate to the yoke.

Carl,

It's a ram mount.
I fabricated 2 yoke plates out of T-2024 for my friend & myself.
He didn't think the threads would hold, so his is bolt & nutted.
I made 2-holes in the ram plate on his to allow access to the 2-yoke plate screws.
On his you take the yoke plate off with the ram mount screws till attached.

Mine has tapped threads.
Mine you have to remove the ram mount to take off the yoke plate.
But I could just drill 2-holes like I did on his to make the whole assembly removable.

I made it to mount high, or low... but we both like the higher position.
