I swapped my rear console outlet for a triple one that lives in the pocket down below and find it much better all around. It's pretty simple:
1. Take the rear panel off the center console (The cupholders pull off via spring clips revealing 2 small hex-head screws, and there are 2 more on each side at the bottom facing the seats)
2. Unplug the rear 12v socket and cut off the harness (have a care here as this is an always-on (not ignition-switched) circuit - recommend pulling the fuse while you work on it).
3. Crimp spade connectors on the wires where the harness was (don't forget to put the insulating boots on first!)
4. pull the metal sleeve from the now-disconnected outlet socket, and replace it with a round 3/4" boat rocker switch
, which will give you local control over your outlet's power.
5. Grab a triple 12v outlet splitter
, which should (as long as you don't get a big brick one) just slip into the pocket at the bottom of the rear console panel you removed. In my case I cut the original 12v male plug off the splitter, leaving a long lead which I passed that through a 1/4" hole I drilled in the bottom corner of the pocket (easy to do from the back) before putting spade connectors on it, too: female for the positive side, male for the negative side.
6. Connect the positives of both the car side and splitter to the rocker switch, and the negative of the splitter to the negative on the car side and put everything back together, tucking the extra wire into the bottom of the pocket or through the hole to the inside of the console.
You now have a switchable triple outlet that can be used with the seats folded (normally a plug sticking out of the rear outlet digs into the folded seat bottoms) and if you left enough cord, can be pulled from the pocket where it lives to wherever you need it; mine's long enough to pass between the seats to the rear cargo area, where I find it infinitely more useful (cooler, battery charging, etc)
Lots of variations: use an outlet splitter with USB ports in it
, switches on the individual outlet ports
, use a USB dual outlet
instead of the rocker switch in the original outlet hole (better fit), or versions of any of these with a voltage display on them if you're using any of this with the engine off so you can keep an eye on the 12v battery charge (even in the hybrids, this is all driven by the lead acid battery). If I can remember to, I'll grab pics of my setup
