Missing USB outlet on 2021 Buddy Kick

So I picked up my new 2021 Buddy Kick on Saturday from over an hour and a half away. Shame on me for not looking more closely, but when I looked for the USB outlet that is supposed to come standard with the model, all I found was a 12V outlet in the storage compartment under the seat. The dealer claims that some do not come with the USB port, and the 12V is more versatile, etc. I'm wondering if it is missing from the factory? Should I contact Genuine directly?

I'd get a cigarette lighter to USB charger and do what you need.

Or if you're so inclined, you can replace that cigarette port with a USB port yourself. They're only a few bucks on Amazon, etc.

I agree with the dealer. This combo voltmeter/dual USB charger is more useful than the stock USB charger, and just plugs into the 12V outlet.
