If we ask you to name a small, always invisible but very important detail, device if you want, necessary in every aircraft cockpit? Second clue - a must be to keep working a tablet or mobile device... Quite fast we all will say - USB charger. So Garmin presents a small, lightweight USB charger designed for a wide range of aircraft.

The GSB 15 has received FAA certification, as well as European approval and is expected to be available through Garmin Authorized Dealers next week at EAA AirVenture.

“Tablets and mobile devices have become a mainstay in the cockpit and it’s essential to ensure they’re powered and available throughout an entire flight,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “The GSB 15 is the smallest installed dual-port USB charger ever designed for aircraft use that allows owners and operators to easily and economically add USB power capability to their aircraft.”

Designed specifically for aircraft installations, the GSB 15 includes two powerful 18W (up to 3A) USB Type-A charging ports that allow pilots and passengers to charge tablets and mobile devices in the cockpit and throughout the cabin in the aircraft. A single GSB 15 is capable of charging two full-size tablets while using them at full backlight. Optional halo lighting around the exterior of the ports allows pilots and passengers to connect to the GSB 15 easily during nighttime conditions.

Two versions of the GSB 15 are available and allow for easy installation in space-constrained areas. One version contains a connector on the back of the unit, which is perfect for panel mount installations. A second variant has a connector on the bottom of the GSB 15 and is ideal for installations in depth-constrained areas, such as near cabin sidewalls. Installation is simplified as the GSB 15 can take the place of an existing aircraft instrument hole with an optional adapter plate. A slim, lightweight design makes it suitable for installation in any cockpit.
