Cigarette Lighter Sockets

What are Cigarette Lighter Sockets?


Cigarette lighter sockets are found in cars or other vehicles and they have two main purposes. Some feature a heating element which is used as a lighter for cigarettes. Alternatively, they are used as a power socket and/or adapter to provide power to portable devices.

They are often 12V receptacles which are only designed to work as power outlets for electronic devices and accessories.
