Just put the mod into my Jetta. Works great I remember seeing this method last year but cannot find it on this forum at all... only for the mk6 golf, which I used that DIY to do this to my golf as well.
Time to complete: 5min
Items needed are as follows:
1. Inline fuse holder that can handle 20A at minimum --> example pic , preferably one that takes a fuse the same size as original so you can reuse your fuse. If not get a fuse of the appropriate size.
2. Male bladed interconnects --> example pic
3. Crimpers to crimp the interconnects to the ends of the fuse holder wires.
There may be more than one fuse box layout. But in any case, there should be a blue socket somewhere. One end of the inline fuse holder needs to be plugged into the upper left corner of that blue socket if your layout looks like mine and the other end plugged into the lower half of where the original fuse was for the sockets. Check the fuse diagram to verify your correct fuse, located in the fuse diagram in the diy thread. My locations can be seen in my pic below. Total cost less than 6 bucks.
Enjoy your ability to charge your phone when car is off.
For an alternate location to tap in to, in case the blue socket might be taken. Here is another thread showing an alternative. https://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...to-12V-outlets
