So I have no lighter in the Rookmobile and never really cared or needed one. Like anyone is going to smoke in my vette.
But lately I have had the urge to have a power source for my cell or iPod....so here's my question. Has anyone tried to convert their lighter to a 12V power outlet? Will it fit? Is there anything special I need to know? I see aftermarket ones on the eBay designated for boats and RVs, will something like that even work?
I removed the lighter from it's original location so that I could install a push button start under the tray(works great). Now I need something to plug my cell phone/mp3 players into during long trips. I was just going to put the 12 v outlet in with the battery or in the other compartment. I just saw the various outlets available at autozone

Uh...Dan...? The lighter socket IS a 12v power supply. You can use it for anything that will plug into it, like a radar defector, ect. They also make adapters for lighter sockets to use for USB ports. Unless I misunderstood your question....
