     :462:  I'm sure this is the stupidest question of all time - but I can't use any of the 12V sockets on my new TTSE as none of the 12V plugs I have will fit - they're all too big! 

    What an I missing here?

    KSquared,

    The outlet on the Trophy is different than the classic cigar lighter used in the US.  These outlets are sometimes referred to as BMW but that is the real name.  The company that sells this type of outlet in the US is Powerlet.

    http://www.powerlet.com/shop-by-product/power-cables/PWRCBL   

    You can buy these a number of places, I generally buy them on ebay.  You can also get one that will plug into the SAE plug on your battery tender then you can plug your battery tender into the outlet buy your left leg.

    Don't feel bad, I beat myself up for quite some time before a BMW buddy of mine explained what they were and where they were available.   :138:

    There should be a regular 12v plug in the trunk and in the storage compartment on the dash. The other 1 by left leg is bmw type and the accessory by the rear seat if you choose to have it added. I do believe you can get adapters for them.

    KSquared. I believe they are correctly referred to as European plugs. Smaller than the normal cigarette plug. Any good electrical spares outlet should be able to supply them, even in your good old USA.  :164: :164:

    KSquared,

    There's an existing Topic about this,
    with an explanation, description and pictures.

    Take a look here : Accessory outlet plug type?

    Cheers  :821:

    Thanks Coconut.  I did a search for 12V sockets but it didn't get me the results I was looking for.  With every new forum - one needs to learn how other members write and express themselves - after which searching becomes more accurate and less "hit-or-miss".  I'm still in my learning stage here.

    But I do thank you for your interest and the direction you've provided.  I appreciate it.

    No problem at all - glad to be able to help  :028:

    There are now almost 84 thousand Posts in this Forum
    ( according to the Stats top left of the Page ),
    and I suppose it's inevitable that this makes finding a specific one a bit harder,
    especially when all sorts of different termnology is used
    by different Members all around the World.

    e.g. "Plug" / "Powerlet" / "Jack" - which one is it  ? ! :153:

    .... and then is it a "BMW" / "Hella" / "DIN" :087:

    Cheers  :821:

    Please see my post to illustrate that I was first to ask the stupidest question of all time.   :001:
