Do you mean a 12V outlet?

I put one in my MGA by mounting it up behind the dash (plenty of room in an 
MGA). Easy to reach up under the dash but otherwise hidden from view.

I put one in our MGB & Alfa Romeo (even though they already have cigarette 
lighter sockets) by using a length of wire to attach a 12V outlet to the 
battery (with an in-line fuse on 12V+). Easy to tuck the outlet out of sight 
if so desired.

This is sort of what I used - the ones I bought have a cover over the outlet 
& didn't have the alligator clips. Hooking it direct to battery makes it 
easy to check battery voltage, connect a trickle charger, etc.
