usb port in seat heater rocker switch?

Hi guys has anyone managed to fit a usb charging port into one of the rocker switch blanks for the heated seats? I'm thinking of doing this and running the power from the cigarette lighter next to it. Am also thinking of adding a switch to the other rocker for on and off control of my drl's?
Thanks

More than possible... the blanks just un-screw from the under side. Remember, USB is 5v, so drop the power from the cig lighters 12v (take the inards from a USB cig adaptor.

i unscrewed my blank switches (which is actually one plastic unit) and cut a hol out of one of them to mount my usb connection from my hu. I used a sharp blade and a lighter to cut/melt through it then fine wet and dry to smooth it off. the usb fits perfectly and doesnt move at all. i will post a pic in a few days.
