Garmin is pleased to introduce GSB 15, a small, lightweight USB charger
designed specifically for aircraft installations. GSB 15 includes two powerful
USB Type-A charging ports capable of charging at up to 3A or 18w per port
simultaneously. A single GSB 15 is capable of charging two full-size tablets
while pilots or passengers use them at full backlight. Compatible with 14v or
28v power systems, GSB 15 has built-in protection against circuit and
temperature overloads. There is also configurable halo lighting around the
exterior of the USB ports to allow pilots and passengers to easily connect their devices to GSB 15 during nighttime conditions.
Two versions of the GSB 15 are available and allow for easy installation in spaceconstrained 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 GSB 15 and is ideal for installations in depth-constrained areas, such as near cabin sidewalls. Installation can also be simplified as 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 or cabin.
Works perfectly, they just need to include a few spare pins in the event you miss crimp one.
GARMIN GSB 15 VERTICAL USB CHARGER
Easy to install and works perfectly.
It’s small, light weight and easy to install. I used the mounting bracket (additional purchase) and placed in a 2” hole in the panel. It’s a nice clean look, but it would also be easy to mount in the panel with the detailed drawings in the installation manual.
Works great and was easy to install. We actually installed two, one in the front panel and one in the rear for the passengers, they love the convenience. Small compact price and affordability were also major selling size, plus its from Garmin!
Yes this is an extremely sturdy usb charger. I would expect nothing less from garmin. Very easy to install. Make sure you have a Molex crimper.
Havent seen it myself yet but my installer says Very nice unit!
I have not installed the Garmin 15 USB Charger yet, but I am very impressed with Aircraft Spruce’s customer service. Not only are they helpful when ordering over the phone, but my unit shipped 2 days before they anticipated it would.
Just added one where my cigarette lighter used to be, just under the yoke. It is amazing fast charging and looks good to. Much better than when we were using a USB plugged into the cigarette lighter which stuck out 3 to 5 inches. Doesnt sound like much, but being flush with the panel is really nice.
