    And if you're still in any doubt, the body of the ciggy lighter is negative, and the centre pin is positive.

    You could do what i did on my last car, get an adaptor with 2 or 3 power sockets and wire this in while your at it... No need to be cutting wires of your future goodies... I just had the adaptor hiding under the ashtray area so everything was neatly hidden
