Found a cheap and easy way to add a light inside the charge port. Bought these super small stick-on LED lights on Amazon. Batteries are replaceable and they are waterproof. Some of the reviews mentioned that they don’t stick super well so I’ll probably use some 3M indoor/outdoor mounting tape to beef that up.
I first tried sticking it along the inside vertical edge of the port itself, just outside of the actual round port receptacle but that made it harder to press the on button plus I noticed some resistance when closing the port door. It seems as if the oval rubber gasket on the door actually fits slightly inside the port opening and was hitting the LED so I opted for mounting it on the door itself. There seems to be plenty of clearance when closing.
The only word of caution I would give with it on the door is to not press the light to turn on without bracing the port door from behind. That’s a lot of stress to put on what appears to be plastic hinges.
Where I placed my light, I can easily put four fingers on the outside of the door and press the on button of the light with my thumb, putting no stress on the door hinges. You could place it a little higher as well if you have smaller hands.
Here’s the link to the lights.
