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 on-board accessories, with single socket or multiple socket options. The cigarette lighter socket is the female connector you often see in the car. They are usually 12V sockets and are only designed to be used as power sockets for electronic devices and accessories.

The cigarette lighter plug is a male connector that plugs into the socket. They are usually located at the end of the cable, which is used to charge devices such as mobile phones, tablets, dash cams, and satellite navigation devices. These plugs usually have a female USB port for you to plug in a USB charging cable.

Cigarette lighters are not only equipped with non-smokers, but car owners can also have them according to their needs. Of course, cigarette lighters with switches are the best choice, because the current of cigarette lighters with switches is often relatively small, and the current high fever.
