We are often asked by customers which socket they need.
Some accessories have cigar plugs fitted to them so you are bound by the cigar socket
unless you have an adaptor similar to the one listed below. I will list the basic
uses of sockets below, see the picture to identify the socket.
CIGAR - 21mm inside dimension - 10A recommended as a max load. Easy dislodged or
looses connection on rough roads. Used for lights, pumps, phone and camera chargers.
Sometimes used for fridges but not recommended due to poor connections and voltage
HELLA - 12mm inside dimension - 16A recommended as a max load. Clicks together for
a tight vibration resistant connection. Used for lights, pumps, solar panels and
other accessories. Used by most fridge manufacturers by removing the red or grey
tip from the cigar style fridge plug.
