RE: Good enclosed cig lighter socket?

A long while back I bought the Blue Seas receptacle and mating plug, but never installed it on my 90 watt DC to DC laptop power supply, opting for Anderson powerpoles instead. Later on, I employed the Blue seas products, powering a relatively powerful led light through a PWM LED dimmer. When on, and slightly dimmed, there was this insidious whining occurring, but not coming from the led bulb itself, as usual. It was coming from the mating Blue seas 15 amp plug and 20 amp receptacle! I was able to press it tighter together and change the volume of the whining, almost able to eliminate it, but take off the pressure and it came right back. Do note that Ciggy plugs have a fuse inside of them, Anderson powerpoles do not. I make my own inline ATC fuse holders from flag terminal quick connects, or regular female quick connects. All the premade ATC/ATO inline fuse holders I have used have been junk, melting at well below their amp rating.
