Cigarette Lighter as Charger?
#1
Is it safe , or workable, to plug a phone charger or any other device such as an invertor into the cigarette lighter as a 12 volt source.

I use to charge cell phone no issue. I never leave the battery hooked up when not driving. I have quick disconnect and take loose every time I stop.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

I use to charge cell phone as well. I am not sure I would hook up an inverter though. Like David I also unhook my battery when I park the car, just good practice.

+1 on the phone charger. You could run a small inverter, 15 amp input, 180 watts maximum. I believe the lighter has a 20 amp fuse, so you should limit the load to 75% of that (15 amps).

Just remember to unplug it when the car is not running, the outlet is hot all the time.
