Ah cool that's cheap, that one is a bit bulkier though whereas the first two don't seem to add much size to a normal cigarett plug!

That looks identical to the Belkin one that I have, but without the Belkin logo. Guess you found the OEM

The Belkin one is a loose fit in my car - stick out about 4-5mm and gains or loses power depending on how it is wiggled.

So I paid an extra 8 for the Belkin logo on mine...

That is because of the particular way the Civic's socket is made. You can fix that like I described here.

Thanks - I saw that thread and went and bought the Maplin one, because i'm lazy. Fits perfectly
I'll keep the Belkin for the rear socket, should I ever get that to work.
