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.


Cigarette lighter sockets and plugs are in-car accessories which are available in single or multi-socket options. Cigarette lighter sockets are female connectors that you often see within cars. They are often 12V receptacles which are only designed to work as power outlets for electronic devices and accessories.


Cigarette lighter plugs are male connectors which are inserted into the socket. They are often at the end of a cable which is used to charge items such as mobile phones, tablets, dash cams, and sat-navs. These plugs often feature a female USB port for you to insert your USB charging cable.
