I give the product a 5 star for the quality. It charges my iPhone and Scout no problem. The unit has a nice all aluminum case and front plate. The plug is a little flimsy but serves the purpose. I wish the unit would be a tiny little bit smaller so it would fit in a 2 1/2 instrument hole. It actually does fit but the the screws are touching the corners of the case and I had to come up with a tricky plate to make fit nicely. I wish they would sell it with a front plate that would fit right into a 2 1/2 hole. I second the previous comment. I would have never bought it for regular price. With that BOGO deal it was acceptable for me and I split it with a friend. Its still a lot of money for a USB charger but I understand what it takes to make airworthy.

While this is certainly the cats meow, if it wasnt BOGO, I wouldnt have purchased it. However, it is certainly top of the line quality.

After installing this unit we ran a test with the master on and foreflight running. My iPad still charged. Cannot wait to see how it does during a long flight with the engine running and various apps running. Unit comes with the face plate which provides a finished look.

Q: Do the ports on the Appareo Stratus Power USB light up to see at night?

No. This is not lighted.

Q: What size hole does the Appareo Stratus Power USB port fit into?

We have added the Installation Manual PDF to the Documents tab of the web page, please download and review it there. The drawing is included within the Install Manual.

Q: Does this Appareo Stratus USB charging port cause RF noise in aviation COM radios?

No, it is shielded to prevent any added RF noise in comms.

Q: Is this Appareo Stratus Power USB Charging Port a 2.1 amp or 2.5 amp charger? It is advertised as 2.5 but the installation manual lists both 2.1 and 2.5. What is the standard output per USB port?

This is a 2.5 amp charger, Per Appareo, the 2.1 amp reference in the manual was an error.

Q: Is the Appareo Stratus Power USB able to be mounted in the cabin or only in the panel?

This device is intended for the panel, and needs a metal panel thickness of .040" to .125" for installation.

Q: Does the Appareo Stratus USB charging port draw any current from the battery when the battery and aircraft are shutdown? In other words, would it drain the battery after a period of time?

There is some residual current draw, <25 mA for a 14V or 28V system, without anything plugged. The recommended installation, however, would have this wired with your master avionics switch, which will shut down all current draw from this unit when the switch is off.

Q: Do you have any STC information for the Appareo Stratus Power USB Charging Port for install on a Bell 407?

This item is FAA TSO approved, not STC approved. It does not have a specific aircraft installation list. Please contact your A&P for details on legality of installation into your aircraft.
