provided with DC outlets. Could you tell me how you tied them into your existing wiring?
One was supplied from Scamp with the TV antenna booster.
Two were wired into the same battery source which I installed to supply power to my 400W tru-sine inverter in the tower closet.
The fourth is in the cabinet directly adjacent to the bench in which the converter is located.
One point to keep in mind... 12V outlets were originally designed to supply power for cigarette lighters.
Most factory supplied 12V outlets are now called "Power Points" and are wired for much "lighter" loads like laptops and phone chargers.
The outlet itself will still fit and handle the load of a cigarette lighter(read , dead short), but most of their supply circuits, designed for Power Points, will not.
You need only to wire for the expected load, and supply the right fuse to protect the chosen wire size.
BTW...We actually own a 12V toaster (one slice)... but at least we don't smoke!(and so neither do our outlets!)
