Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good useful product. Cigar lighter plug positive and isn't loose and doesn't disconnect. Negative points - Maplin spec gives impression that you can leave socket connected as it mentions switches but not correct, have to push plug in and pull out when finished. Inconvenient. Blue sockets light too bright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality product Easy to install and so far its working fine. Bought this to operate a dash cam and sat nav. Additional sockets are USB for my iphone and a neat retractable cable for a smart phone. Did my research and found this was best for my needs .Also it lights up in the dark and I found this not to be too intrusive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features especially retractable phone charger Glad I purchased this item, well made with some interesting features such as retractable phone charging wire helps keep things neat and tidy, have used the screw mountings to fasten mine safely to side of centre console where it doesn't look too much out of place and it's out of the way.

We are planning to use this in a campervan which also uses the battery for charging a small fridge whilst travelling. Will this affect the capacity of this socket? Will it also charge a camera battery whilst on the move?

Asked by: Higs42
Yes it will divide the 10A capacity by 3 sockets.

Hi I 'am thinking of buying this product to connect too 2 heated car seat covers and running them at the same time. Would this present a problem with the battery?

Asked by: HarryC
As long as both devices do not exceed 10A total load it will work, however you need to consider how much power you are extracting from your battery. If the engine is running this wouldn't normally be a problem, but if drawing from a battery directly then you may find you will exhaust the battery power very quickly.

If I leave this product in situ but remove device cables from sockets (sat nav, dashcam) will the product on its own drain the battery if I do not start the engine? Or will it only drain the battery if I leave the sat nav and/or dashcam connected please?

Asked by: MPTK
it should only drain the battery if items are connected and charging or on

Product says it has power switches for devices but person who left review suggests this is not the case. Can you clarify please whether the produce has power switches or not ie does it have to be removed each time leaving the car?

Asked by: MPTK
Thanks Russell. Suggests that description is misleading as it implies power switches are there for control purposes.
