Cigarette lighter

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at fitting another cigarette lighter in my car and was wondering if I can just wire it from the old one or is there an easier way to wire it in?

Beware... No knowledge of the Focus directly (my experience is boat 12V wiring) but the sockets come in (at least) two versions, depending on the max current draw you require.  Phone charging is around 3 Amps, so you actually need a bit more than skinny cable...

depends how much current you want from them. you could wire a new one from the old one as long as you use same grade cable as the old one and do not switch the fuse for one of higher amps. If you use thinner cable or change the fuse you risk overheating the cable and possible fire.
