Center console rear USB?

I want to add USB ports to the rear of the center console in my new to me 2008 so my kids can plug their devices in. Is there anything within it that I should be worried about if I cut a hole for the port? Thanks!

My apologies, I forgot I was in the exterior subsection, mods please move if possible.

Yeah, back in August I bought a dual USB outlet and mounted it in the rear panel of the center console. The rear panel simply snapped off, and I drilled a big hole and mounted the outlet. Ran the wires up front and tapped into the wires for the 12V outlet inside the console. This made the back seat passengers very happy.

Help RAV4World members help you by providing your car's operating location in your profile page. Climate can cause a RAV4 in Dallas Wisconsin to experience a different set of issues when compared to the same model in Dallas Texas.

Yes, That would work. I would just recommend if you have an android phone or other devices that use Qualcomm Quick Charge that you get one like the one I posted or one like this! QC3.0. It charges much faster!
