If you own a newly produced Rivian R1T or R1S, you may have noticed that there is no under dashboard 12V outlet in your vehicle. This can be a problem if you want to power devices like wireless Qi chargers, or other USB accessories. Fortunately, there is a solution: the Scosche OBD2QC3-SP.

The Scosche OBD2QC3-SP is a universal USB hard wire kit that plugs into your Rivian's OBDII port and provides a Quick Charge 3.0 USB port. It lets you quickly power and safely install your USB device directly inside your vehicle, without needing a 12V power socket. The kit has a 5-foot cable that can be routed discreetly to your desired location - such as poking out just under the steering wheel for connecting a dash-mounted Qi Phone Charger to one of our phone mounts.

The Scosche OBD2QC3-SP has a 18W output that can charge your device up to 4 times faster than standard USB ports. It also has built-in safety features to protect your device from overcurrent, overvoltage, and short circuit.

The Scosche OBD2QC3-SP is the perfect accessory for your Rivian R1T or R1S. It gives you an extra USB power port and a clean-looking installation for any USB-powered device.

Please Note: Power to this item does not turn off when your Rivian does. We strongly recommend that you do not leave an item permanently attached to it.

Great substitute power supply!

I purchased one of these Scosche OBD2QC3-SP 18W adapters to power my LISEN 15W MagSafe Car Mount Charger (mounted to the OpenSourceEV Left Phone Mount), since my 11/2023 R1S unfortunately has no factory power source on/under the Instrument Panel.

Plugged it into the OBD-II port and stuffed the USB-A female end up behind the dashboard.
Then pulled the plastic panel on the drivers door side of the dashboard back and reached down to pull the wire up & out.
Plugged the charger's USB-A cord into it, ran the charger's cord up along the pillar and around to the charger on the front of the dash, zip-tied the excess wires altogether, pushed the panel back into place over it all.
Powers on/off with the other Rivian interior lights/accessories, charges my iPhone 13 ProMax fast!

Will not power a 15W charger

I attached it to a 15W inductive charger. Light would come on for a few seconds and then go out. Phone would never show charging. I really had hoped it would work, because it has OBD2 pass through. (you don't need to unplug the adapter to use another OBD2 device or reader) Opensource EV Parts could not tell me if the adapter was functioning correctly and referred me to Scosche. After 2 weeks, no response from Scosche.

Hi Mike - As we discussed via email, if you have questions regarding compatibility with 15W chargers, you will need to connect with Scosche directly. Our recommendation is that this product be used on 10W chargers, as there are many options available and the compatibility is almoster certainly better.

Would this work for a dashcam flash drive or is it only for power?

I read that only the two usb-c ports in the center console work for the dashcam. I would expect this device just provides power to usb-a, and would not let you connect a flash drive for the dashcam. Is that right?

What I want to do is install a hidden dash cam flash drive somewhere, but as far as I have found the dash cam must be connected to one of the two center console usb-c ports. I also suspect there's no other usb-c port hidden underneath the not-really-working wireless charging area.
