Today, I decided to shorten my long V1 cord. So I used a splicing/crimping tool along w/ some RJ-11 connectors to shorten my cord. I couldn't get it to work and was getting really mad :x . Lucky for me, when I got home, I checked my other lighter adaptor and it worked fine, even w/ the other's fuse? I have never had a V1 lighter adaptor go bad like this. Since I have to send in my concealed display, I will be sending them this faulty lighter adaptor as well. Very thankful I have an extra lighter plug folks. What a relief (wiping sweat from my forehead).
