Gord...those are nice, although a bit big and clunky. It is too bad the cigarette lighter sockets have become the standard. Perhaps the EU or some other large standards organization will designate something that is smaller and is capable of handling more current to be the new standard. I don't think the US will be the one to do it, we are not even on the Metric system yet.

Not very big - smaller than both a cigarette lighter socket & it's male plug, and roughly the same size as the gimpy Perko 1189's.
See some typical dimensions here
