This socket type is extensively used throughout Europe for 12 volt portable accessories. It main advantages are that it is smaller than a normal 12 volt lighter style socket but has the same power rating. The socket with matching plug (sold at our other listing), snap together to provide an anti-vibration proof connection. A standard 12 volt lighter socket / plug connection uses a friction fit that can vibrate out of connection in mobile applications. This socket solves that problem with the snap together connection.
