    They are probably Hella (or Euro) sockets like we have on our Burstner. Similar to lighter sockets but better.

    If you do a search on here for Hella sockets you will find several recent threads which should answer all your questions.

    providing heat or heating water isnt viable on 12v uses to much battery power and i think youll find there a limit on the power output of those sockets
