12V Cessna Power Adapter
Works, but mechanical latch does not work cuz the connector barrel is too long. So it can fall out if pulled unintentionally.

Won't stay connected
The clip system on this device does not lock into the receptacle. I have bought two, thinking the first was defective. Not the case. Neither one will stay connected. Not worth the money.

Pros: A must have for using my Garmin 696 in my 172SP. There is no cigarette lighter type outlet in the cockpit. Cons: The cord could be a little shorter just to reduce the wire clutter in the cockpit. Maybe Garmin should engineer an power cable that plugs directly into the power outlet in the aircraft. This would alleviate the need for this adapter. But, for now it is a necessary accessory for my flying.

Pros: works great to keep portable devices charged up during flight. This keeps the peace in the family. My husband (I'm the pilot) likes to have his portable GPS to work with while we're flying. The charging cord keeps the battery charged. His GPS is a wonderful backup device in case of electrical problems. We can just unplug it and have a full battery charge.

Pros: Unknown Cons: The unit provided with the Garmin 96 GPS came with no documentation or guidance as to its installation and use. The pins in the small end of the cable do not match any orfice on the Garmin 96 GPS unit, and the large, open round end has no apparent connector to the aircraft electrical bus. This is not what I had expected. I thought I would receive a cable that would plug into the GPS at one end and be attached via a standard connector to a point behind the instrument panel. However, the cigarette lighter-to-GPS cable provided with the unit functioned as expected. My Cessna is not new, but a 35-year-old C150. It has no 12 volt cabin power outlet; and the big end of the cable does not appear to match anything on the GPS unit. I cannot make a recommendation because I had no opportunity to use it.

Pros: This is essential if you want to plug your portable GPS into a Cessna that doesn't have the right size socket. Cons: One more cord to clutter up the cockpit. Buy a couple, in case you lose one. Especially if you're using a portable GPS to get your weather.

Pros: Works great for plugging in the cigarette power cable provided with your unit. Cons: You may have to come up with some modification to the plug if you do not have a cessna outlet in the aircraft you fly. A Needed item if you have the Cessna outlet in your aircraft. I do not, but I had the plug modified so that I can use it in the aircraft that I fly.

Is this same as 5 pin cannon plug?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I can't tell you whether this is a Cannon plug or not, but it looks like one.

It has four recessed male pins, two large and two small. There are five unpopulated pinholes.

The aircraft end is keyed inside the barrel. There is a plastic latch that does not catch in our 172 cos the barrel is too long.

All that said, it works fine and there is enough pressure to keep the connector in place. I use mine for my Garmin ADS-B In receiver, but we also have one that can turn a fan for our cooling chest, so it can carry some amps.

Know that some aircraft have a switch you must power on in order to make the outlet active, a safety measure.

Hope this helps!
