I am in exactly the same boat. I was sure that a previous post covered it but when I searched the archives, zilch. Obviously I didn't look hard enough. I'll be very interested when someone comes up with the info :))

It's not a ciggi plug, it is also a hella style plug - do you have a problem with the connection - have you removed the red adaptor and tried it in a Hella socket?? I have used mine for years without a problem - would never have described it as crappy.

I want to retain that lead and have another so I can plug it into an outlet in the back.

ok, well don't understand that...one fridge only needs one cord in my world...why not just put a female hella plug as the outlet in the back and use the same cord??

The plug on it should be a hella plug, black with a red tip. Twist the red tip and it will come off leaving the hella plug. You can then get the hella 2 pole socket. Put the red tip back on and you can use it in the cigi plug. Not sure how old yours is, buut this is how the new one come.

cheers

I tried to get just the fridge end plug to make up a lead but couldn't get one, you have to buy the whole lead for about $20. The plug on the end is a Hella STYLE plug it's far from a Hella plug and I would describe them as crappy, I've felt mine hot a couple of times and heard of a few that melted. I just chpped it off and put a genuine hella plug on the end, much better connection and never gets hot. Also modified the AC power supply and put a Hella socket next to the cig plug socket. You also need to add an inline fuse if you put a hella plug on the end, I used a waterproof inline blade fuse, as I try and keep all my gear with the same type of fuse.

That defeats the whole purpose of fitting the hella plug, you still have a cig lighter plug on the end.

I wasn't particularly happy with the plug either. It did seem to come loose on corrugations. I cut it off, put an inline fuseholder in and stuck an anderson on the end. My power outlets are 1 anderson and 1 cig lighter in the back, so the fridge stays on all the time and leaves the cig lighter for the laptop or fluoro tube etc.

G'day Scott,

Consider hardwiring mate! Done that and is foolproof. Like you bought a new lead(s) (2 fridges) chopped off the cigi plug and put it straight into a fuse box. This arrangement doesn't fall out, get hot or worse leave you with a warm fridge.

Kind regards
