Maximum power rating

Electrical socket Maximum power rating
12-volt 120 watts

The maximum power rating of the individual sockets should never be exceeded. The power rating of each device is stated on its type plate.

If two or more devices are connected at the same time, the overall power consumption of all connected electrical devices may never exceed 190 watts  .

To prevent damage due to voltage fluctuation, switch off any connected devices before switching the ignition or engine on or off.

12-volt sockets can be found in the following locations in the vehicle:
