Hello Experts in hardwiring, I need your professional help. During my very first trip down south I intend on buying a cord to power my S2, this will be used exclusively in US and NOT in Canada... and install it myself (I got all set of tools in my car)... now, attached to the cigarette lighter I have a triple power outlet, so far I use it for the CB Radio and my XM Radio, the third one will be used for a 110/12V power adapter to power-up my Sony Camcorder (filming while driving, a special mount on the dash for the camcorder), therefore there is no more room for a regular power cord... so far I have not seen a quadruple power outlet for the car, but if found one, will the cigarette lighter be able to sustain all the power these 4 units usually use all in once?
Then, if the solution with the power cord is not available for me:
1) what's best to buy, a direct wire smartcord, $30 or just a direct wire cord, $10? does the first one have a protective fuse? personally I don't care about the mute button...
2) where should I connect the direct wire (smart) cord for the best and safest usage, cigarette lighter, radio, rear wipers, or other place maybe???
Thank you very much for your help!
