Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well made but doesn't fit together properly.Just got this in the mail today.  Looks like a well made product but I'm not happy with the way the socket fits into the rectangular mounting plate.  It slips around and is a sloppy fit.  I'm not even sure how the screw on mounting ring could possibly hold the socket in place on the plate.  Given this, I will probably mount without the plate and just use the socket by itself.  I would not recommend this product if use of the rectangular mounting plate is important to you.  In my application it isn't needed.  You know, I just looked at this more and it appears that the socket slips in neatly from the back.  If that is the case, all I can figure is that the recesses for the screws are on the wrong side of the plate...I don't know...either way it doesn't work right!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product with one ShortfallI purchased two of these units to install in an older boat. The weatherproof feature is why I selected this product. The units were easy to install and the weatherproof cover seems to be suitable for years of service. The shortfall is that the unit does not come with the mounting screws for the bezel. I understand not everyone will use the bezel, but the failure to include the bezel screws meant I had to go find screws.

Marine Grade Cigarette Lighter Socket 12 VDC

will it work with a standard 12 volt plug or do you need a special plug to work with the locking feature?

These will work with any standard cigarette lighter plug.

What is the max current this unit can handle?

Asked by: RyanRs
There doesn't seem to be any official specs anywhere about this, but usually 12V cigarette outlets are rated for 10A. This outlet seems to be physically quite similar to most other 12V outlets (at least, in terms of the size of its contacts), so I'd say that 10A would be a safe limit for it too. You might be able to get away with 15A or 20A, but that might start melting it, depending on ambient temperatures.

Can this adapter be plugged into your home outlet?

Asked by: ksmith4f
Yes, that would be possible, but very inadvisable. Physically, it should be able to handle the 120V provided by a home outlet (and may even be capable of handling 240V, but that starts getting really dicey). In order to handle a certain voltage, all that's required of a device is that the insulation on the conductors can handle the voltage, and that wherever the conductors are bare on the device, they are physically separated enough that no arcing occurs. In the case of this socket, it would appear that both of these conditions would probably be met for 120V (and maybe even 240V).HOWEVER, by directly hooking it up to a home outlet, the voltage that the home outlet produces is the voltage that this device will output. This device does not have any form of voltage conversion, so it will NOT output 12V if it is plugged into a wall outlet. This would be a major problem because virtually all devices that would plug into this socket require 12V; 120VAC would surely destroy them.If you want to use this cigarette lighter socket in a home, and you want it to output 12V DC, then you will need to connect it to a power supply that outputs 12V DC. I've added links to a few power supplies from Parts Express that would work for this. Basically, you need a supply that outputs 12V DC, and which is capable of delivering the amount of current that your devices will draw.Alternately, you could just buy a AC adapter that includes a built-in cigarette lighter socket. I've included a link to one of those as well.
