2004 Toyota Camry Question: cigarette lighter/power supply not working

 

Question

My cigarette lighter isn't working any more and I need it in order to charge my devices. I have already changed the fuse located next to the driver's side door without success. Any other ideas on how to fix this besides taking it in?

    If all the fuses are ALL ok, then it may be the cig lighter socket itself. These are not really made to be a constant power source. I have seen people hurt their electrical systems in their car with constant phone battery charging, best to use the wall socket in your home which is more heavy duty than your car.
