I'm requiring 12 V power from my cigarette lighter (which in my car doesn't have the lighter element, just an empty hole) but don't have the adapter that plugs into it. All I have is 2 wires. Which parts of the cigarette housing are the +/- cause I basically wan't to hook the wires up to an adapter that i'll construct which will contact both points inside the cig lighter housing.

Can't you just cut into the wires which power the ciggy lighter? That's what I did with my neons (They're inside and AREN'T rice) and stuck in a toggle switch so I can turn them on or off.

The outside is negative. The postive part is the contact in the centre. 8-)

Just remember that the wiring to a lighter socket is only fairly small so don't try drawing too much current through it......

How much do neon tubes use, it wouldn't be very much.
