Don't tell them you've been using the glovebox USB to charge your phone as it's not supposed to have enough power to do that - you're not even supposed to plug in portable hard drives in case the load is too much!

- or so it says in the manual

Oh really? That's interesting - thanks for telling me.

I'd not have thought you could damage a power supply by plugging something in that needs too much -that implies the the device sucks power rather than having power pushed to it! This may be the case - I have no idea how these things work.
