Please note, the USB Port has rounded corners on one side, resulting in small gaps in the middle position. Check out the pictures for more details.
About the Charger / PassThrough Kit
During installation this kit can be configured as two dedicated USB charging ports or one port can be connected to a USB 2.0 equipped radio or other accessory.
The Double Apex USB Charger is compatible with smart phones and any other device that can be powered through a USB port.
The 40W Charger module now comes with Qualcomm's Quick Charge™ 3.0 technology for both USB ports. This means charging speeds up to 4X faster than standard chargers, and up to 9X faster than Qi wireless charging, for QC compatible devices. For non QC devices, the charger's Smart Charge circuity will still provide a fast charge rate, similar to a typical wall charger and up to 4X faster than Qi wireless. Quick Charge™ compatible devices use Qualcomm's Snapdragon™ processors. Find out if your device is compatible here.
The module's advanced power control will detect the requirements of the attached device and tailor the output as needed, providing protection against overheating, overcharging and short circuits. It is compatible with any product that uses a USB cable for power including:
- Apple iPhones, iPads, and iPods
- Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG and Blackberry phones
- Tablets, digital cameras and MP3 players
- Even remote controlled helicopters and drones
The cables included with the Charger kit are shortened to maximize charging performance. If you plan on connecting the 2nd USB Port to another device or radio please select a configuration that includes the PassThrough.
About the PassThrough
The Double Apex USB PassThrough is a USB 2.0 extension that integrates perfectly with your Volkswagen's interior. Use it with MP3 and iPod adapters, aftermarket radios, Volkswagen's MDI radio interface* or any other device that uses a USB port.
Keep in mind, because it's only an extension the PassThrough needs to be connected to another device with a USB port, such as an aftermarket radio or aux adapter. Most stock VW radios do not have a USB input. If you don't have another USB device and want charging capability consider the USB Charger kit.
