Garmin has launched a small, lightweight USB charger designed for a wide range of aircraft. The GSB 15 contains two USB ports and supports simultaneous 18W (up to 3A) high-speed charging.

The Garmin GSB 15 has received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification, as well as European approval, and is expected to be available next week.
“Tablets and mobile devices have become a mainstay in the cockpit and it’s essential to ensure they’re powered and available throughout an entire flight,” says Carl Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “The GSB 15 is the smallest installed dual-port USB charger ever designed for aircraft use that allows owners and operators to economically add USB power capability to their aircraft.”
Designed specifically for aircraft installations, the device includes two powerful 18W (up to 3A) USB Type-A charging ports that allow pilots and passengers to charge tablets and mobile devices in the cockpit and throughout the cabin in the aircraft. The device is capable of charging two full-size tablets while using them at full backlight. Optional halo lighting around the exterior of the ports allows pilots and passengers to connect to the charger during night time conditions.
Two versions of the GSB 15 are available and allow for installation in space-constrained areas. One version contains a connector on the back of the unit, which is perfect for panel mount installations. A second variant has a connector on the bottom of the device and is suitable for installations in depth-constrained areas, such as near cabin sidewalls. Installation can take the place of an existing aircraft instrument hole with an optional adapter plate. A slim, lightweight design makes it suitable for installation in any cockpit.
