    Hi,

    Can the cigarette lighter socket be used as adapter for charging mobile phones ?
    I bought a car charger for my phone, but it doesnt seem to fix cleanly into the socket, nor does the phone charge.
    Any pointers? Do I have to remove something from the socket?

    On the charger pull the Metal clips I have marked in the pic I have attached towards yourself. Adjust it as per your needs.

    again here Fiat provides a non standard 12 volt socket in which most of the chargers and other appliances dont fit. may be chargers only from italy fit in.

    the hole is not deep :)

    Let me be devil's advocate here :) the manual doesn't say it is a mobile charging point, it is a cigarette lighter! Probably if it was listed as charging point, it would have been designed as such. I have HTC charger and it doesn't fit snugly. In my Uno I had got an after market charger fitted and my Nokia charger never fitted there snugly or even the plug in for the back massager I had. I am happy till it is doing the job that it is not designed to do :)

    Even the location of this lighter/adapter socket is not very good. Especially for using FM transmitter.

    My Cigarette Lighter-adaptor (12 v Power Socket )is working. But it is not giving illumination.
    I checked it at dealer. Dealer says internal LED is not working.
    He said seperate LED is not available.
    Complete 12 V Power Socket is to be changed. Is there warrantee for illumination of 12 V Power Socket ? ::O
    From last 9 months I am ordering it. Dealer is not ordering it. :A
    But as I mentioned in earlier posts my dealer is interested only in doing Paid job. :A ::OO

    Hi all,

    I also have a Samsung micro-usb charger and it doesn't work in my Linea.
    What's the solution for this problem? I need to buy another dual charger but am not sure if it will work.

    Help please?
