    I'm looking to install some USB ports in the rear to recharge/power ipads etc.. for the kids (I have Rear Facing Seats). Maximum draw would be 5V ~2.5A. What options are available to tap into back there?

    Go to:

    EV Appliques

    and then find the installation instructions. Look for the step where you remove the right hand trunk liner to find the 12V power.

    Excellent reply. I have installed the Lighted Applique and tapped into power at that location. I added a 6 terminal fuse box so I could expand from it if needed.
