I have a female socket on the MH that one of these fits.

Does anyone know if you can buy the male two pin plug on its own with USB port(s) built in? I currently fit a cigar lighter /USB adaptor into the end to charge the phones.

I am going to stick my neck out and say a 100% NO...

That 2 pins 12 socket / plug is years old design and the USB so much newer. No one would ever manufacture something for such a small demand....

I doubt very much you will find the plug you seek.
not enough demand to be worthwhile the trouble designing and making moulds etc.

perhaps there is one with the USB sockets in the back. I agree with your point Tonka but someone may have seen one somewhere.

I just fitted one of these in my car for phone and tablet charging.

Only requires a 26mm hole and a live feed from an existing circuit.

The square bezel and cover can be removed so it becomes a round fitting.

Thanks NickNic. It looks like the two flat pins are the same size whereas the one I need has a broad pin and a narrow one.
Thanks for all your fast replies I think that a new female socket such as pappajohn & tonka recommend is probably the way forward.

Do like we do and go twin plug to ciggy lighter socket and stick a ciggy plug to USB socket in it. Works great.:D

I installed one of these after removing the aux power socket from the centre console, couldn't of been easier and looks factory fitted (y)

Next job is to remove the antiquated Hella socket and replace with one of these

We had a socket like that in our Autoquest. I took the cigar plug off a multi-socket adapter and replaced it with a 2 pin plug like the one in your photo, remembering that the positive on a cigar socket is the end terminal and the negative is the side clips. As with any electrical circuit the trick is not to overload its capacity.
Our Burstner has Hella sockets so I did the same sort of thing with a Hella plug.

That is a 2pin American plug made by Australian company Clipsal, they were used in UK caravans in the 80's for 12V.

You could buy Broken Link Removed and connect it to your plug.
