    Testing power from car cigarette lighter socket ? 21st Jun 06 at 3:03 PM
    This may seem like a silly question but is there a way to test if my cars cigarette lighter socket is working ? I don't have anything (yet) to plug into it to test.
    I have tried the actual car lighter but it doesn't get hot.

    I have a Ford Focus.

    I have just purchased a sat nav unit and may need to use to socket as a power source.

    Its not big and its not clever.
