I'm not a smoker but I opted in for the Smoking Package to have the clean look on the center console. I just purchased this mini flush fit dual USB charger to make use of the cigarette lighter. It looks awesome and the charging was fast as per my passenger.

If it's able to sit low enough that the cover can be closed, it's worth adding to my Macan. Thanks for the heads-up.

Yes, you can definitely close the cover. The charger sits almost flushed and definitely lower than the cigarette lighter itself.The smoking package is now the charging package ;)

Yep, I have been using one of them in my "pre USB" 996 for years. Works well, no problems, great idea.

I use this one from BMW that came with the car many moons ago, works great and the little ring pull makes it easy to remove. Keep it in the car for passengers to use.

I picked up one of these small chargers. I definitely wish I got something more flush mounted but they still work.

I do have one question though. I unplugged mine when not in use because they seem to stay energized. Does anyone else do this or leave it in all the time?

Yes, you can still see the blue lights after you turned off the engine but after you leave the car and locked the doors it will eventually lose power. I had the same concern so when I returned to my car and before I started the engine, I saw that the lights inside the charger was off. Leave it in....no need to remove it.

I recommend and use this charger which fits perfectly in the Macan's smoker option lighter outlet and charges two devices at up to 2.4A each for $9.99 .... free shipping (in the US) if you have Amazon Prime
