Cigarette lighter

Hi all,

I tried two different cigarette power charging things (whats the name for them?) in my punto. One a phone charger, the other to power a dvd player and both did not work.

Is there a higher voltage used in the grande punto to other cars? Any info that might help explain this and what I could do would be much appreciated.

I found out that it's very difficult to make a good connection. When I plug in my nav system I have to move it around till it works.

Does the cigarette lighter work? if not - likely the fuse has blown. Check the manual for location ( there's loads of them all over the place
