Default Power Options for Accessories

Curious what everyone is doing for power options for accessories. Cell phones, radar detectors, gps, dash cam etc. I've thought that a portable power bank would be good for shorter trips; however, for longer cruises/road trips, it would be nice to be able to have that permanent functionality.

If you don't want to put a 12V outlet in your dash, you could always hide one (or more) behind the dash and just reach up to plug things into it / them. You can also get USB ports that go in (or behind) the dash.

Boat / marine or RV outlets are a good source, as is Amazon. Available with single, dual or multiple outlets.

Some examples:

I mounted a motorcycle USB under the dash; similar to this one:

Thanks all, greatly appreciate the responses. These examples are exactly what I had in mind. Currently waiting for my Backdraft build to be completed and am brainstorming needs/wants to pass the time while I wait!
