12vdc power socket

A 12vdc power socket, aka a cigar lighter socket.  Since I don't have the tool kit, I figure the chrome would be just fine for a weather capable socket.  Direct the battery, no fuse, but does have a 2-wire polarized connector so I can remove the battery cover if I need to.

Eastern Beaver has powerlet and lighter sockets.  They usually come pre-wired with a fuse.  The local BMW shops usually have a selection also since "those guys" are always adding farkle.

I used a 14 gauge wire.  The Carry Current is only 6 amps, a 14 gauge wire is a 170 amp fuse.   --  "I Void Warranties"
