Quick question. Is the cig lighter circuit live even with the ignition off and key out? Don't flame me for being too lazy to check it out for myself. ;-)

On some cars yes, on some no - but I've never figured out what determines it. It doesn't even seem to be regional. Mine wasn't - I had to get it modded so it was - but some UK cars seem to be.

I have a Porsche trickle charger for my '90 C2 that plugs into the lighter receptacle, and it works great.
