Car Cigarette Lighter Adapter for Battery Chargers

Car Cigarette Lighter Adapter for Battery Chargers

Car cigarette lighter adapter for 12v chargers.
Adapter includes two size 12v plugs and will fit our Turnigy, Imax, Emax and other chargers.
 
Plug 1)
Outside diameter: 5.49mm
Inside diameter: 2.52mm
 
Plug 2)
Outside diameter: 5.49mm
Inside diameter: 2.12mm
 
Max current: 12A, 25V
     
A great way to supply power to chargers without lifting the bonet of your car! Or, for those that like charging packs in the car on the way to the field.
Do not use more than 50W. (about 3,600mAh 3S @1C charge)


NOTE:
Please ignore the labels that say 'Futaba' and 'JR'. For some reason the factory believed you can charge your transmitter with a 12V car power supply.

DO NOT CONNECT THIS TO YOUR TRANSMITTER!
IT IS TO POWER BATTERY CHARGERS ONLY.

The label is helpful in inidcating polarity of the plugs, however.

I didn't buy this for its intended use. I bought it to make a cigarette **ghter power adapter for running my charger in my car. The wire looks **ke 12AWG or 14AWG from the outside, but it's actually just a really thick rubber, not si**cone, and it's not marked with a wire gauge or temperature rating. It's more **ke 18AWG or 20AWG wire on the inside. It's therefore not a really good choice for how I want to use it. I thought about opening up the plug and soldering some decent 12AWG in there, but according to the other folks, it's not even worth it - it'll melt at 5amps. Meh.

Yes, I did, but the plug melted in socket after a short time, I don't recommend these...

I happened to have a heavy duty cigarette lighter plug and lead from an inverter that died on me years ago. I found it when rummaging around in a box of parts. I just cut the plug off this adapter and joined the heavy duty one on with solder and heat shrink to insulate it. I guess you could probably find more heavy duty cigarette lighter plug at electronics stores like radio shack.

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, PLUG INTO A TRANSMITTER!!!!

Cut the JR connector lead in two, reverse the polarity (black to red and red to black) solder ends back together and insulate.

You can now use Car Cigarette Lighter Adapter to connect to:

TR-5011
Turnigy-3S
Turnigy-420 U-ACC6
Turnigy Accucel-6

And probably many more.

If your 12v input charger connector uses a negative shell and fits the charger it will work

I ordered two, they both came with a 3A fuse. :(
So when charge with 5A, the fuse was cut. then i replaced them with a higher rating fuse 13A, but then, the adapters have melted.

This "Car Cigarette Lighter Adapter for charger" Must be rated 3A max. NOT 12A.
