About the cigarette adapter
The DC male (5.5 ID, 2.1mm CPD) to 12V cigarette outlet adapter can be used to power your CAN logger when no direct power is available through the CAN connector.
Most often, you'll be able to simply power the device via a OBD2/J1939 connector - but sometimes this is not an option.
The cigarette receptacle adapter fits our CANCrocodile adapter and DB9-DC connector. For permanent installations, we suggest to directly power the device via the vehicle battery.use cases

Below we list example use cases where the cigarette adapter can be useful:
J1939/FMS vehicle telematics
Need access to J1939/FMS data - but lack a connector port?
The CANCrocodile lets you record data directly from the CAN wiring harness. It is 100% silent and contactless, making it popular for vehicle fleets. Here, the cigarette adapter provides a quick way for providing power to the CANCrocodile.
If you do not have a cigarette outlet available, you may alternatively power the CAN logger via a custom connection to your vehicle's battery. This is typically a solution deployed when using the CANedge/CLX000 with a CANCrocodile kit for more "fixed" setups rather than initial pilots. For non-vehicle applications, you can power the CAN logger using e.g. a wall power outlet and our DB9-DB9/DC adapter.
