What are the connectors on the cigarette lighter power

Hi All

I'm looking to add some USB plugs in the rear of the console and a 12v outlet in the rear cargo area.

I know that Quadratec sells a power tap harness, but it's quiet expensive for what it is and all I really need are the connectors:

https://www.quadratec.com/products/96080_9801.htm

Does anyone know what the actual connectors are / are called so I could buy them and make my own harness? I've been searching around and can't find something specific / someone who sells them.

Was planning on using something like this:

and just want the connectors so I can make the wires as I need them.

I needed (key switched) 12 volt connection and simply tapped into the hot wire connected to the lighter plug. Cost was zero except for a couple of butt connectors and took all of 5 mins to do it. Since the connection is inside there's no worry about moisture or need to create a waterproof connection imo. Wouldn't be difficult to tap 12 volt wire for your rear power plug and another for your USB connection that goes into your console. I suppose the Quadratec is a very easy way to do the same thing but for me not at 40 bucks!

Same here. This is how I powered my USB sockets. The power wire is a straight 12v switched power source with no ties into anything else like the CANBUS system or a PWM or anything.
