Powerlet Connector

Powerlet plugs and sockets are fully compatible with power outlets found on BMW, Victory, KTM, Triumph and Ducati. Vehicle manufacturers use these connectors because they are smaller, more durable, vibration proof and can handle more power than an automotive cigarette socket. Unlike standard cigarette connectors, Powerlet plugs and sockets conform to a worldwide DIN ISO standard.

Standard Cigarette Plugs & Sockets

These are the types of sockets are what you normally find in cars, and the plugs are standard on most 12volt mobile phone car chargers, power leads for car GPS units, and car MP3 chargers, etc.

 

Advantages

Powerlet plugs have many advantages over standard cigarette plugs.  Firstly they are made to a much higher standard meaning they are more durable then standard cigarette plugs.

Powerlet plugs actually “lock-in” when inserted, meaning they are virtually “vibration proof” giving excellent 12volt connection, and will also not easily “bounce” out of the socket.

Powerlet Range

Powerlet make a variety of Plugs and Sockets, with many different combinations of leads.

(please be careful when wiring certain devices where the original plug contains electrical components. These devices may have step-down voltage regulators. In cases where there are components within the original socket “head”, it would be advisable to use a Powerlet Adaptor Cable – see below)
