    Never mind, just realised i can strip a 12v charger apart, they run at 5v...

    But anyone know if there is a feed i can tap into to run something at 5v? preferably around the dash area.

    just to say that If you do find anything at 5v in that area it's prob best not tapped into as anything that is 5v is a signal wire to a sensor/ actuator from ecu so anything that pull current from it could give you problems

    Yeah I'm just going to butcher an old charger now, probably safer and easier after the stuff I've been reading lol.
