    I think they are a euro thing.
    But readily available.

    You can get double and triple adapters for next to nothing on ebay. When using my laptop in the motorhome I often run the laptop, MIFI and a fan all off the same socket.

    You will use them, if like us, you have a 12v socket in the bathroom that is useable even when the engine is switched off - that one needs the adaptor. Hope all is going well with your Hymer and look forward to meeting up soon.

    When at all possible its better to change the plugs to Hella plugs instead of using the adapter. For instance, my 12 volt compressor now has a Hella plug instead of the cigarette plug it came with. Also the macerator. I find that the adapters generally have thin wire and they get hot. Hella plugs and sockets will take a much higher amperage than normal cigarette plugs.
