I'm using my TYTN II to listen to radio when I have a long drive. The TYTN II is connect using a FM radio transmitter, with the usb converter.
The problem: When using the Internet, then battery drain is quite fast, especially if you are on the move and the radio signal is not that strong. I tried few usb chargers, and all

I have been browsing google looking for mods done to a dewalt work radio dc011.
I want to install a usb charging port and I don't know how I might wire it in.
I know the battery is a 18v and usb needs 5v, but don't quite know if it would work.

A good quality usb car adapter will do exactly that: buck the 12V fairly efficiently to 5V or thereabout. They are made for 500mA but the good ones will probably do well @700mA. If you're not too familiar with electronics this might be an easier, more likely to work and probably cheaper solution ;)

First of all hi, I am new here so i dont know many things, but I would like to learn.
I am wondering how I can make a usb external port in my CD/MP3 car player. I dont remember the model but the brand is JVC, I will look for more details. Is it possible to make it?

Good day, my goal is to learn usb interfacing and I would like to use C++, however I'm still new in this field of interfacing could anyone give me some directions as to where to go.
My end goal for this is to be able to interface a radio controlled car to a pc with the use of the usb port.

I want to build a car usb charger using the 12v of the cigarette lighter. I already found a regulator for the job but how do i protect my circuit? I have heard that the 12v of the car varies a lot. Is a high power zener enough? Should i use a crowbar circuit? Maybe a low pass filter?
Thank you in advance.

BE sure to only provide 500mA maximum to your MP3 player because this is the maximum an usb port can provide I think.
You better check the usb standard for the exact value of maximum current.

To make a charger you don't need to know about usb beyond pinout, Vcc=5V and Imax. (500mA nominal). Data pins remain unconnected. Since Nokia phones refuse to charge with Vin beyond some threshold (about 3.X volts, don't remember exact value) you need a DC-DC converter with a current limiter to avoid overload usb port. That limitation will make cha

There are really two answers to your question, one hardware and one software.
Hardware: PCMCIA and usb connectors are designed to make power connections on insertion before signals and break power after signals on removal. This provides a relatively safe "hot plug". The other bus connectors (ISA, PCI, IDE/ATA) are not designed with this feature.
