Adding ambient light to the center console for under $12

In my last post, I explained how I upgraded eight of the lights in my Model X to improve the lighting on our floorboards, trunk, and frunk with great results. However, this still left the center console completely dark at night. I’ve been looking for a simple solution and I found one for under $12.

The center console has a 12V electrical outlet (known as a cigarette lighter ‘back in the day’). I found a very small USB charger that has the perfect amount of light emitting from it AND gives you an additional two 2.4amp USB plugs.light3

It’s now much easier to connect my phone at night. I still want the front portion of the center console lit as well, but I’ve yet to find a solution.
