Hello. For some reason I can’t seem to get my cigarette adapter working. I’ve tried a couple different adapters and iPhone usb cables which work fine in the car. We tested the outlet and it’s showing full power. It’s as if my adapters aren’t making contact or something like this. Can anyone recommend a brand of usb cigarette adapter that works for them? Thanks!

Unless you need the cigarette plug for other uses you probably should change it out for one of these I have several on my 27FC and they work great

Thanks, that looks nice. Does it just screw in?

you'll have to change the wires from the cigarette plug to this new outlet, it should slip into the hole left from the cigarette lighter, then a couple of screws and you're done

Are you certain it has power. My previous Albin had a switch for this receptacle on the instrument panel.

I think that's a great idea, but I found something similar on Amazon (Who doesn't shop Amazon now?) for 1/2 the price. Here's the link!

Even if you got the more expensive one, I think it's still worth getting this one.
