DC to Cigarette Outlet Adapter

Need to power a device via your vehicle's cigarette lighter?

With this DC male connector and our DB9-to-DB9/DC adaptor, you can easily power e.g. your CANedge/CLX000 CAN logger via your car's cigarette lighter (in case your CAN bus does not provide a direct power supply).

It can also be used if you want to log data via a CANCrocodile, powering your installation via your cigarette outlet.

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.

Below we list example use cases where the cigarette adapter can be useful:

CAN logger Vehicle Telematics J1939

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.
