    What would be the best way to install a 110V outlet up from under head unit somewhere in dash on 2020 Tundra?


    Thanks

    I guess the first question is what are you trying to power and what are the watt requirements?

    If you're trying to power a laptop or something similar a small inverter plugged into a 15A cigarette lighter will probably work unless it's some crazy gaming laptop (Check first to see if they have a 12v power adapter for your laptop ... many do and makes this really easy). Also the inverter type matters if you plan to use power sensitive electronics. In this case you'll need a pure sine wave inverter and I doubt the little ones that plug into a cigarette lighter are (probably modified sine wave).

    I had two in my Rebel one in dash and one in back console, I used the dash one for plugging in my wife old apple Ipad that she refuses to give up! lol
    The one in the console in back I kept a sure wick plugged into that to keep truck smelling good, with my crew getting in and out all day sweating, dirty, etc. So I figured if I could find a cheap easy solution I would go that route. Be hell of a lot cheaper then buy another IPad for wife, when she loves the one she has...

    But thank you all for your quick response..

    For the iPad you can use USB and just get a 12v to USB adapter to use in one of the cig lighter sockets. I try to avoid powering DC stuff with AC adapters if at all possible due to the overhead of running the inverter and the inefficiency of the AC to DC conversion. However I run a bunch of stuff off solar so not an issue if you're just powering this stuff when the truck is running.

    For the air freshener one of the inverter adapters Trooper2 posted should work. From a quick google search it looks like these use 2-4W of power max @ 120v and those adapters claim 150 watts of AC power.

    Yea, I might just go that route with the USB plug. And do something else for the sure wick, like tape tree fresheners to my crew when they start to get in my truck..lol

    But thank you all for your input...
