VoG's ciggie link

That is the coolest bit of kit I have seen in a long time. Now as I have an old BMW lighter in the garage and also an old case, all I would need is the "Sleeved 4pin 12v Molex Connector". Can these be bought from somewhere like Maplin? How do you wire it up? Would the bulb work? This is a serious question folks.

Right over my head! I'm not known as Irishman for nothing!

As far as I know they are the only seller. I don't know how it connects up - presumably to a spare lead from the PSU.

Unfortunately you cannot buy by credit card but they do accept Paypal, if you've got that.

If you decide to purchase, get two and I'll send you the Euros for mine!

Link didn't work! type cigarette lighter into the search box.

Thank you very, very much.

Ordered and confirmed.

If I can get the cable I'll probably build it myself. Having had a closer look at the connector it only has two cables in it so presumably finding a 12 volt supply from the PSU with a meter and then a bit of soldering it should work. Might mount it to the right side of the floppy. If nothing else it would be good for a laugh. Better remember not to use it when there's a floppy in there though!

Thanks for the link Djohn but as I have an old but in perfect condition lighter I will go the DIY route. If you see a large puff of smoke from the direction of N.Ireland you'll know it's not the ceasefire breaking down just me blowing up my computer! Wonder if I should do a backup first?

Irishman, don't forget a cooling fan ;o)

VoG ordered one myself too! Now where is that ashtray that slides out of a CD bay! ;o)

CD bay? Do you mean my coffee cup holder?
