Just a quick question. I have a cigarette plug for a tv booster for my car, but i want to hardwire it. Which is positive and which is negative. ie. is the pin the positive, and the 2 outer plates are negative?
AUDI A4, 2.6 V6
Audio: Morel, Audison, Hertz, Stinger, Pioneer
Carputer: Mirco ATX, 2.4gHz, 256ram, 80gig, 7"touchscreen, Opus
Unfortunately, that's the end! Was good while it lasted, but gotta sell the car.
i've hardwired a cigarette plug before, but can't recall exactly what i did. now, i'm attempting to do it again with the cigarette adapter for my belkin fm transmitter. so i opened it up and noticed the the positive wire was connected to a spring. the spring had a glass fuse rated at 250V/500mA, and the fuse was attached to the tip.
so my question is... if i'm going to hardwire it, do i need the fuse in line with the positive connection? or do you think the fuse is utilized in illuminating the LED on the adaptor itself? i noticed that the transmitter itself says "DC input 12.0v/200mA".
