If the phone is a modern one and you have installed the lighter socket, buy a USB adapter and put it in the socket. Regardless of the brand name they are all Chinese, don't pay more than 2.50!

Charging phones at sea

I think we need to know WHY you're charging a phone in an SR4.

Is it because you forgot to charge it earlier?
Or because you'll be out there all day?
Or because you may use it for Navigation purposes?
Or because you may run down the battery playing Fruit Crush

Each use has a different answer. As a SIB user I put a bit of thought to it when I had to find a solution for myself...
