Cigarette lighter phone charger
« on: May 15, 2019, 09:39:57 PM »
Hi,

Does anybody know if there’s anything I can do to make my phone charger work in the cigarette lighter? It’s an 06, 55 plate.

Cheers

Just buy a fag lighter USB adapter and it should work?  It only works with the ignition on though.
Black Edition 30 with manually selected cogs, a beefier clutch, some extra boost and them Whiteline thingies, otherwise standard.

Make sure it's a high amp. 2.4amp will be fine. Anything less won't charge it whilst in use. I.e sat nav.

So, the cigarette lighter does work, it just won’t charge my phone. I’ve tried all manner of different types of plug. Can I just chuck a bigger fuse in?? There’s a 12v socket in the boot which charges a phone. Not too convenient though...
