As best I can tell, it is not possible to hard wire a usb to the car. The solution appears to be to install a 12 v charging port, aka cigarettes lighter, then install the usb charger into the port.

Does this agree with your experience?

Would something like this work?
Blue Sea USB

Something like this can be surface mounted and the cover doesn't have to be used to give a clean look that includes a voltmeter to monitor your electrical system. Link to usb port

This link is for a usb port like the blue sea. https://powerwerx.com/panel-mount-dual-usb- device-... It mounts in a hole the size of a cigarette lighter and is available in a couple of backlit colors.

Gentlemen, I thank you!

Was headed in the wrong direction, based upon my searches. You guys found me exactly what I was after!

I was thinking the same thing. In the interim, I use an external charger that I keep charged for a backup energy source.
