Alphard power outlet advice please


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm new to your group and need some advice please.  I've recently bought a lovely 2007 3.0 V6 FWD. I'm trying to make use of the twin power outlet sockets between the front and second row seats. I can't find an adapter that is small enough to fit. The covers over the outlets are in the way. Can anyone suggest a solution please?

Thanks Monster S. Much appreciated. I guess I need to be careful what appliances I plug into that adapter? Can I boil a kettle on it? And apologies for all the stupid questions.

Kettle? I doubt it, I think this is only a 100w socket which is really only any good for powering low-power-use electronic devices like phones, iPads etc. 
i removed the ones in mine and then removed the 12v dc to 100v ac inverter, so that now I was back to 12v dc, then I replaced the jap sockets with some oe fit dual USB’s. A bit more useful in my opinion.

Mine states 1500w on the flap of each of the 3 sockets (one in the rear). Mine's a Hybrid model so perhaps why higher rated. We run a 80w coolbox and 2 x DVD players constantly. I ran a 200w coffee bean grinder also no problem

I’ll have a look tomorrow. Would be handy if it’s there!

These are hybrid specific, but It would also make sense that the wiring exists, if you are up for a bit of retro fitting.
