Vegas “Vegas747” Seven four seven: Now is the cigarette lighter and 12V the same thing. Because on is heating up very hot and the other is just feeding current to a electrically powered object So my point being is that. Could i pull the actual thing that heats up to light a cigarette and plug a 12V cord into it ?
