    Check on the flea for a marine one - not only waterproof but also have a lock mechanism, so they don't just come apart. Installed one of those in the cab and it's a godsend.

    I also use automotive twin cable connectors that have a tab to prevent pulling out - again excellent for battery connections - and have survived even the most heavy handed of use.

    I'll see if I can find a link.....

    Halfords mate,

    I use a Hella plug wired off the lighter socket and beware of cheap imitations as there are more fakes on Ebay than genuine Hella kit.

    I've been meaning to ask that question for a while. The normal fag lighters are useless even for my flasher

    On my quad i've just got a pair of bullet connectors wired to battery, not that ideal
    I also know some grouse boys that have a standard 3 pin house extension lead plug wired direct to the battery and fastened above there glove box in there motor

    I have changed all mine to hedge trimmer plugs and wired direct to the battery with a 15amp fuse. Much the best option, too many foxes have lived due to fag lighter plugs failing.

    +1 for that. So easy too do and means you can detach the lamp and put it away and the short wire is still in the dash. Cheap easy solution. Get yourself round your nearest dump and see if anyone has put a lawnmower or hedge trimmer in with the cable still attached. Steal the plugs and a length of cable to reach ur battery. Perfect
