First thing to do is to remove the blanking cover (or whatever cover is fitted in place of the cig lighter) in your car and have a look behind to see if the wires are already there. They *could* well be taped to a wiring loom nearby.

If so, all well and good. Could be a simple job of plug and play. You may well have to put a fuse in the fuse box, but the wires could already be live because of other equipment sharing the same supply.

If no wires present, then it's a bit more involved. ie, needing a switched live supply that is also fuse protected.

I don't have a cig lighter in my Corsa (don't smoke but I could do with it to charge my mobile phone).

When I took out the radio/ash tray recently I found that mine had the wires for the cig lighter taped to the rest of the loom, just need to get one from the scrappy.....
