Here is an example of a plug type, that also uses those spade style connectors.

If you are going to go through all of that trouble, do yourself a favor and start from the other end. Open up the case and replace the wire with a decent gauge and proper connectors.

Ciggie ports should not be used past 6A IMO even then they svck.

For high amps like that Anderson PowerPlugs are best.

NOW we are on the same page but I don't call then ciggie ports since damn few of them are actually compatible with a plug in cigarette lighter. 

Hey, you have been known to point out a few faux pas too!

Irrelevant to me, simplest way for people to know what you're talking about, certainly where the (horrible) design came from.

Certainly not going to dignify them as a "standard" even if they're very common.

That sounds like a good idea. I just want to stay warm while watching a video or sleeping. Does a 12 volt blanket use less power than a heater?

Yes, a lot less, and a 12 volt mattress pad uses even less power and is safer.
