About 12V Car Cigarette Lighter
One of the most overlooked accessories on any vehicle is the 12-volt car cigarette lighter. This accessory happens to provide power to all of your current devices, whether it be a phone, tablet, GPS, or computer. Only when a unit fails do people see the significance of the lighter sockets. There is a large inventory of 12-volt car cigarette lighter components available on eBay. The 12-volt socket is operated by a single negative wire that stems from the radio harness located behind the center console. When that wire becomes damaged, the cigarette lighter no longer works. To fix the unit, pull out and solder the socket to the existing wire. There are several types of aftermarket adapters available, such as socket splitters, USB adapter chargers, and 12-volt cigarette lighter power adapters. Socket splitters take the existing current that flows through a mounting location and spreads them out so it can be used to connect more than one piece of hardware. USB adapters utilize a splitter design to let you charge USB accessories. Find the right 12-volt cigarette lighter accessory for your car.
