| | mini usb cable to hard wire in car
Is there a mini usb cable that can be hard wired into the 12v car system? It would have to incorporate some minor circuitry to drop the volts down to 5v which the blackberry power is? If not, I was thinking about using the appropriate cig lighter plug charger (which presumably does the voltage drop), install it via a pig tailed cig lighter plug behind the dash but I would not want to use the heavy curly cord of that vehicle charger to come out of the dash so would need a thinner, mini usb extension cable to feed out to the phone mount location. This seems like kind of a kluge of wiring though so if anyone has a simpler idea, I'm all ears.
