What Type of Outlet on the Trophy?
« on: October 11, 2013, 02:03:36 PM »
I went to the Gerbing's site to order power outlet cord for my heated gear and notice they have two types--a typical cigarette lighter DC adapter I'm used to and something called a BMW/Euro accessory adapter.  What type does the Trophy have?

Hela is the official name but I think it is the same as BMW

It is a smaller diameter than a car and actually clips in a bit rather than relying on friction like a car one.

Thanks, I'm glad I didn't order a normal one.

This is only for the permanently powered one by your left foot!  The others are 'normal' it is possible to get ones that fit both.

On Amazon, they are called Powerlet.  $19 and works great.

Sorry it was rushed reply I am supposed to be working  :084:

The one in the glove box is 'normal' cigarette lighter type.  the one by the left leg is hela the one in the top box is 'normal' but I am not sure about the passenger one.  I would think hela as it is those 2 you want to 'clip' in.  As I said you can get hela that is just hela or you can get 'normal' that has a little removeable adapter to make it hela.  The 'BMW' ones I got (Hela only) are a very strong design much better than cheap 'normal'. 

I hope that is not too confusing????
