    Yes I was just over there and I immediately thought that this could've saved Mr.C some time on doin' the mod himself but it's a little on the pricey side though. ;)

    What is it they are lighting:p
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    I saw that too, and I was concerned that a cigarette lighter might cause a lot of draw on the PS. I can't remember if an automotive lighter is on a 15 or 20 amp fuse.

    Interesting, I thought it was a bigger draw than that.

    I'd say it's a pretty good drain, I've never tried mine while playing a game or doing anything intense.

    I've seen a LANner with his own cigarette lighter modded into his pooter. He didnt use it for the obvious purpose though - rather for his coffee thermos :)

    There is a nice variety of 12V appliances on this page;

    A pizza oven & popcorn popper and he'd be set for the weekend:D

    Also whippin' a lighter socket plug onto a 120mm fan ya can use it for personal coolin' (ya may need some weight to anchor the fan though as I find that they push themselves across my workbench and ya's should see a 7K Y.S.Tech scream across it). :devil win
