can't abide them things you plug in cig lighters. prefer a hard wire, much neater  but some of this far eastern stuff has a reputation for getting hot hot hot

If you're worried about dodgy non-CE approved shite from the likes of [eBay], why not take a look at what Maplin for example offer, at least the stuff they sell should be CE approved and made to certain standards.
