12V Widget Heaven!  And a great resource for problem solving, import conversion, and for year round collectors of stocking fillers for blokes!

Pro Car:  Procar are the world's leading manufacturer of 12v & 24v DIN & Lighter style plugs, sockets, adaptors and associated products, including the universal plug design pictured right. Their high quality and universal application makes them ideal for vehicle and equipment manufacturers, and naturally enough for their customers too!  Pro Car products are found in cars, motorhomes, caravans, trucks and boats. You'll also see them pre-fitted to many accessories like cooler boxes and fridges. For completeness we also include a few non-Procar items at the bottom of the page. The Universal Plug to fit both lighter socket and DIN socket is illustrated right along with an exploded view showing internal features including the screw terminals for easy diy wiring.

Cigarette Lighter Sockets v DIN sockets?  Because there is no universally agreed specification for vehicle Lighter sockets and because these sockets were never designed to be used for such an array of accessories as they now are, the DIN Standard socket and corresponding plug were designed. Naturally enough that resulted in two types of plugs and sockets in common use!  And now - so that accessories can be used in either type of socket, Pro Car offer their well known red-topped plug which can be used in either kind of socket simply by removing or replacing the twist off red cap. They also make many extremely useful adapters and adapter leads and splitter leads to convert from one to the other.

Please note that the typical UK vehicle fitment is 'Lighter Socket' (LS) and not 'DIN Standard' socket. A number of European motorhomes also use the DIN socket for power in the living area.

General info & Dimensions:  The DIN plug is the preferred type for powering accessories and is fitted to most European motorhomes. The Lighter Socket is still common in the UK though. To make life easier we offer adaptors to convert from one to the other.  We've tried to be specific about types here but you might also find references to 'standard' = 'DIN' and to L.S. / LS = Lighter Socket or LT = Lighter Type. Universal Plug fits either, twist off the red cap to convert from LS to DIN and twist back on to convert back to LS, easy!  The other standard to refer to is the maximum allowed current, these days that is normally 8Amps (about 100W). It is also possible to use up to 16A (nearly 200W) but only if using one of the Heavy Duty items on offer and also only if your vehicle fuse and socket wiring support it. DIN Sockets go in an 18mm dia hole and most LS go into a 1" dia ~25mm dia hole but some 'power socket' and push-in versions may require a 28mm hole. The din socket itself is about 12mm diameter compared with about 20mm for the lighter socket. Procar extension leads are usually about 4m for the flat type or 60-300 cm approx for coiled.  

24v to 12v Convertors:  These extremely useful converters plug into 24v Lighter or DIN sockets and provide twin 12v Lighter socket outputs. We can supply a range of budget and of high tech voltage converters with outputs from 4A to 30A and prices from £9.95 to £195!  The budget versions listed below are perfect for running 'ordinary' 12v appliances like phone chargers, laptops etc, in a truck for example, just choose between 5A and 20A total output.  For the switched mode 'Alfatronix' please email for a quote. 

Ireland:  Regrettably we cannot offer our standard postal service to Ireland on these products. Unfortunately we have to make additional postage charges, typically another £2.00 or £3.50 as below, and some delivery times will be extended too. You can add that extra postage to your shopping basket below, use one of the IRLPost items found at the top of the product list. (Small packets to NI UK postcodes are unaffected).

Express/Overnight is not generally available on ProCar, if desperate you can ask, we'll help IF we can.

Min Order:  Due to the relatively high cost of handling small orders we must ask for a minimum order value of £8.00 on items on the page please. This excludes pp which will be added at the 'basket' screen.

This is quite a long page - but we thought you'd enjoy browsing down through the items! To help you with your choices we've added pictures to every item here.  PgDn to Browse
