    there was a change form a lighter to a 12v accessory one. It looks like the plug has changed as well. Can you split the plug up and use it?

    well i can see the differnce.. (mine is just the new one)

    Yes you should be abel to to that.. but would be easyer just to use "spade connectors" instead of solder.

    Yep use the connectors, much easier, Maplins/Motorworld/Halfords all sell the bits!
