I have a newer fwc. I went out and tested my Blue Sea 12v acc. Worked and held fine. I added 2 more for convenience. They can be purchased separately https://www.bluesea....olt_Dash_Socket

Blue Sea also makes sockets that have USB connections.  I prefer them over the “cigarette” style.  My camper has both.

Hard to have a preference when the device either needs the 5v connection or the 12v connection. My most recent device is a 12v water pump for filling the tank.

You can have both USB and 12v.

 

This one has dual 2.1A USB outlets.  Most others have one 2.1A and one 1.0A or 1.5A USB outlet.

Are these plugs converting the 12VDC socket to be one or more USB power ports? If so, then I'd go with the dedicated Blue Sea USB solution. Same form factor, so an easy replacement.

 

If they are not, and the sockets are Blue Sea sockets then I'd suggest changing the plugs to the Blue Sea plugs which with a 1/4 turn or so will lock onto the sockets.

I changed a 12v socket to two Blue Sea USB outlets. Works great.
