I was thinking about this today, car manus dont seem to fit aux power out put adapters... its a nightmere... give it ago you may have to up the fuse rateing to cope with the current draw. check your car hand book to what fuse its fitted.

Sorry completely missed this Mr Paul, you're welcome btw.

Hope your soldering iron is better than mine, 20 years old and had the tip filed down a couple of times (wonder how many other people have also filed down their tips lol) will get a new one soon, do have a new gas soldering iron but keeping that for emergency use only.

the one with the screws is a lot better connection than the cig lighter type and is generally known as a heller plug
