SOURCE: Is there an adapter that can be used on a car cigarette lighter for plugging in appliances?

Your best bet is to check on eBay for an adapter - the Asians make all sorts of stuff for cars now & i'm sure there is an adapter out there suited for your purposes. P.S. It may sound silly but are you sure you are using the actual cigarette lighter socket & Not a power outlet socket that many cars are now fitted with as standard?, my phone charger fits the cigarette socket but not the power outlet?, you never know?

Can the intex 66718be inflated from your car 12 volt system.if so where can we purchase the adaptor to fit the 2 pin plug on the bed. from the cigar lighter in my vehicle.


check the current draw for the machine and if it is over 20 amps then the socket cannot be used
12 volt sockets for accessories sockets can be got from autozone or other auto spares shops

Where is cig lighter fuse in a kenworth k108


Most 12 volt outlets/plugs like one would plug a GPS into or a cigarette lighter, are 'hot' all the time. This means that they are hooked direct to positive side of the electrical system. If your cigarette lighter is not working check the wire from it to the hot side of the fuse block.

I have a vacuum cleaner which I use in my car by connecting it in the 12 volts lighter socket. In wish I could use it for my Music system at home, is there any possibility that I can use it by some so


You should be able to go to an electronic store and buy a converter from 220 to 12 volt D C. If there is a truck stop near you they will have them.

12 volt cigarette lighter socket


the lighter socket will be straight 12 volts and the GPS may require less (5.5 volts) and the different size is to prevent the over voltage and damaging the GPS unit. There may be an adaptor that will do the job and it may have a built- in transformer for the purpose.

Need to know the output power from my cigarette lighter port


Hi, you have a 15 amp fuse to run all 3 sockets. Total peak power available without burning the fuse is 15x12=180 watts peak. Please let me know if you have more questions.

I unplug my battery , and when I plug again my radio doesnt work , the radio ask me for a code what I do?


Each time you disconnect the battery, the computer loses all codes for security system, radio, etc. If you know the code for radio, enter it into radio using the number buttons. To prevent this again in the future, you should purchase a power cord for the computer. It has the lighter plug on one end and a plug you connect to the car's computer. Plug the lighter plug into any 12 volt plug (not the lighter socket in your car)...you can purchase a portable jump starter with the 12 volt socket. The purpose of this is to keep the car's computer "powered" while you disconnect the battery.

1996 Cavalier 12 Volt power outlet in car doesn't work right?


Even thought the plug in is 12 volt. It's ouput is different. Most electronics have different ranges from 3-9 volts.
Does the 12 volt charger put out 12 volts? If so, it would burn up the electronics' capacitors on their power supplies.
How is the car's electronics doing? Are they too failing? If so, that would be a faulty voltage regulator, if not, I would hook up anything you use to the radio wires.
You cannot plug in anything directly to battery no matter what the person told you. Batteries charge, than release charge, a contiuous cycle. The power output is speratic and anything hooked straight up to the battery will need a fuse.
