    Pomen : WAHHH.. good idea man. But I would probably tap power from the fusebox. I hate having a thousand things shoved into the cig lighter.

    if u want to tap directly...

    and doesnt mind a simple wiring job (solder or no solder job also possible)


    u can use this instead:

    however it does sacrifice the use of cig lighter socket just to keep the low power consumption smart tag device,

    has anyone tried solar ?

    well..mostlikely people have the multi-ciggie port add-on in their car anyway...


    or for diy goers, it means just a simple wiring to hook in into the accessories power supply...




    well since nowadays solar powered power bank is pretty common, just stepping up the 5v to 9v is require a little bit more work....
