12V Accessories

For 12V accessories we don't recommend cheap unproven products. If you are going to the trouble to pack and transport an item for thousands of kms then you want it to work when you get there. Finally 4WD manufacturers have worked out that owners need to access 12 volts in the back of their vehicles. Unfortunately they provide the notoriously unreliable cigarette lighter socket. The solution is a Hella plug and socket which lock together with spring pressure so that vibration won't unplug your fridge on a corrugated road. If you feed 12 volts to your van or camper trailer we don't recommend using your trailer socket, as the connections are low amperage and built to a price. An Anderson plug on the other hand will easily carry high amps with its silver contacts and lock together plug and socket.
For marine and outdoor use there is a range of high quality water-proof plugs and sockets.




















Plugs and Sockets

If you run a fridge, appliance or battery charger from the socket inside your car or caravan, experience has taught us to do-away with the notoriously unreliable cigarette plug and socket. The spring-loaded centre pin in the plug acts to push the plug out of the socket over corrugations or waves if in a boat; you can loose power to your fridge and not know until you stop.
The seven or five pin trailer socket for your caravan may be okay for brake lights and blinkers, but don't expect it to carry a good power supply through to your van for appliances. The following range is recommended for their quality build, highly conductive contacts and well defined current ratings.

TRAILER PLUGS and SOCKETS
How often have you loaded up the van with all provisions, are about to leave, and find a blinker or brake light is not working? - An unscheduled delay in leaving. With the KT plug and socket simply push the test button on the socket, to receive a colour coded array of LEDs confirming power to each of the pins.

We have all the necessary cables and high tonnage crimping tools allowing us to build 12V extension leads or fly leads to suit your custom requirements.

Jumper leads

Not all jumper leads are equal. We are aware how cheaply jumper leads can be bought from many auto outlets.
We purchased a set rated at 200amps. We cut the cable in half to measure the copper wires inside. The copper measured 2.7mm≤ which by Australian standard AS 3808 is rated to carry only 24amps, not the 200amps claimed on the packet.
By comparison, our jumper leads are designed to AS 3808;
  • High quality unit made by Hella and rated to a genuine 500amps

  • Modern vehicles have electronic engine management systems which can be damaged by electrical spikes. Connecting and disconnecting jumper leads can induce spikes.
  • The second unit that we market is also rated at 500amps and has a built in anti-zap module.

  • We suggest as a general rule it is not advisable to buy jumper leads for other than a motorbike or very small car unless the packet indicates cable size of 35mm≤ or greater.
