USB Charges in Eagle HT 23.5 RBS?

I am wondering if anyone has installed USB chargers in their fifth wheels, TT, or motorhomes? After taking a 10-day trip, between the three of us were having a hard time charging our electronics. Yes I know, "your on vacation, leave at that stuff at home". Sometime I which I could, but I would be camping alone.

I have seen USB chargers with up to four ports and was thinking of putting one or two by the entertainment cabinet. There is a shelf there that would hold the devices and get them out of the way. Not the devices are on the kitchen counter, the bathroom counter and the dinette, all in the way.

All of the USB charging ports I could find on the internet were out of stock of way over priced ($42+). Anyone install USB charging ports and have a brand or source to recommend?

After posting this I found a Cooper Lighting combination USB/Outlet on sale at Smarthome.com for half the price I have seen at other retailers. Would have preferred a 4-port USB as opposed to a 2-port, but I ordered two for the price of a single 2-port/receptacle other places.

We use one plugged into the DC outlet and another in a AC outlet that handles 2 devices. That takes care of all our devices.
Total cost nothing. We already had them.

I went this route instead; the 12v system is available even when traveling or boondocking, and doesn't require converting.
