The average cig lighter is only rated at 20amps which means a maximum of 240watts unit. That said, a sepaerate cable and fuse could easily be put in.
Mine came with ring connectors on it

No issues in running a new cable from the battery with an isolator and fuse on it
In -5 to -15 deg C temps my landys standard heateris just about acceptable when moving. It struggles to blow out even luke warm air if it's on tickover although it
The leccy heater takes a little while to heat up the inside of my landy from 'icebox' status but once it gets up to temp it's capable of keeping it warm. It does make a big difference in de-icing my windscreen too.
I had it mounted behind the front seats and pointing at my windscreen on my previous 110. It could defrost the screen in just a few minutes.
On my current 110 it's located behind the second row seats so doesn't defrost the windscreen anywhere near as fast.
Instead of heating the screen to defrost it as it used to with my previous 110, it heats the interior of my landy which in turn gradually defrosts all the landys windows. Coupled with the standard heater it does make a big difference though.
