  • HardWire Lilliput to back of Cigarette Lighter

    Hi Guys, have a quick question and would like your thoughts.

    I have used the 12v cable that came with my Lilliput (the one with the Grey Bubble that plugs into the Cigerate Lighter connection) basically i cut off the big Cigarette lighter connection and hard wired it into the back of the lighter, i also added a Fuse for a little protection, so i now simply have the connecter that plugs into the screen hanging there ( just what i needed ).

    My Questions !

    Are there any downsides in doing it this way ?

    As i will be using the screen as a removable screen is there any chance of blowing it ?

    Any thoughts and suggestions please ?

    Thanks all.

    My project is now half way there .

    should be 100% fine as long as you left the regulator in place.......just go easy on the connectors, you dont want them wearing out too soon
