12 Volt Tools/Accessories

After a successful implementation of a suggestion to convert my air compressor's 12 volt connection from alligator battery clips to a 7-blade plug-in, I'm feeling my oats (as my dad used to say) and wondering what other 12 volt tools, accessories and goodies I could convert in this manner. What do you think?

You could use a 7 pin trailer connector to a short pair of wires connected to the charge line and ground line, and install a regular 12 volt accessory plug on it. Then you could run any 12 volt appliance that has the standard cigarette light connector. Hair dryer, mixer, cell phone charger...

Now that I think about it, you could even get brave and connect your trailer to that 7 pin plug, and run all kinds of stuff, lights, brakes, even charge the trailer battery...
