    Hi,

    Any body knows how much ampere of Fiat Linea's Cigar Lighter is?
    I just know it is 12 Volts.

    Thanks,
    Prashant

    Additionally, what alternative use can one get from the Cigar Lighter in the Punto E pack MJD?
    (I never smoke in the car.)
    Any ideas?

    I have a few requirements
    1. Electrical tire inflater
    2. Electric kettle (But considering that it's 12V rated at 15 Amps = 180W, how effective it will be)
    3. Mobile phone charger

    Current depends on the resistance of the electical instrument being used. Only the voltage of 12V is fixed, not the current.

    Agreed. 15 Amps is the maximum current that you can draw from this socket. Anything more will blow the fuse.
