Where can I find compatible power cable?

I think that's a co-axial plug (48W - 12V - 4A).

It's on a Koolatron P-27: http://koolatrononline.stores.yahoo.net/koolatron-p27-voyager.html

I bought this thing 10 years ago and lost the power plug that goes on the cigarette lighter.
I searched on ebay for something like that and couldn't find anything frown.gif

tough find. let me share this before i give you a crazy idea:
http://www.koolatron.com/manuals/P20,P27,P65,P75,P85%20&%20P95%20Manual.pdf
Quote:
Just plug your cooler into the 12 volt cigarette lighter receptacle in your vehicle. The current consumed is about 4.5 amps.
ok it run off the 12VDC and needs 4 amps (i know you specified that)
Quote:
The cooler can be operated in the heating mode, by reversing the polarity of the power supplied to the cooler. This can easily be done by gently pulling out the power cord from the cooler, reversing the bi-pin plug and pushing it back in.
ah, i think i am going to beg to differ with needing a coaxial plug, esp looking at the image. (edit: as much as the image you link as the one below)

now i may be incorrect from what i am reading so definitely take what i am suggesting you consider with a bigger grain of salt:

make your own.

get any smaller lighting extension cord. cut the male end off about a foot in length and attack/tape/solder a wire to each "pole" on the side of the cooler. then get any cigarette light plug from an old phone charger (or similar) and splice the two wires to what is left of extension cord with the female end. you may need to shorten the extension cord to limit the voltage drop; anything longer than the original length could pose a problem. if you plug it in and it gets hot when you want it cool, then switch the plug.

again take what i say with the warning that i am not afraid of doing some screwball ghetto rigging.

Lots of people talk about using a mini fridge to cool their PC, not realizing that those small things are not designed for a sustained heatload and that a sustained heatload would overload and burn out the mini fridge. It just pops up on the forums a LOT, and it gets oldrepeating it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again..... Now I'm assuming it was annoying just reading the "over and over again"s, now imagine typing out a long explication that many times. XD

If it plugs into your vehicle's 12v power plug then it 100% absolutely has to have it's own internal resistors to keep the current at 4amps.

All you'd need to do is splice in another power cable. Snip the wires on the end, and the wires on any spare 12v cigarette lighter/vehicle power plug you have, then wire the positive to the positive, and the negative to the negative.

If you're trying to use it indoors, simply get a 12v auxiliary power supply with at least 5 amps.
