SOURCE: cigarette lighter

YOU CAN PURCHACE A NEW 12V OUTLET AT ANY PARTS STORE. THEY ARE EASY TO INSTALL TOO. YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE DASH TRIM. TWIST THE HOUSING OF THE OLD ON TO THE LEFT AND IT WILL UNSCREW. REPLACE WITH A NEW ONE THE SAME WAY. THERE ARE ONLY TWO WIRES THAT WILL PLUG RIGHT IN.

SOURCE: Cigarette lighter not working properly in Pontiac...

This is a very common issue, either the ground at the back of the lighter socket is pulled off, or more likely the socket is defective, they are very easy to change, u can use a generic replacement from any parts store, the factory part will be at least 2X as much..

SOURCE: No power to cigarette lighter, cannot charge up devices.

You may be able to contact the dealer and ask over the phone the location of the fuse(s).

-or-

Use a friends manual, because I don't believe they have a pdf of the manual on the dodge website. If you find a site with one post it here, because I have yet to find one and would like to have it.

-or-

With a electrical tester and with the cars ignition on, test all fuses and replace the ones that don't have power on both sides. If all fuses are good then you have eliminated the problem being a fuse.

SOURCE: My cigarette lighter will not charge my TomTom

The plugs which are used with car lighters are often very poor; compare the firmness of the seating of the lighter with your accessory plug. The latter are often too loose to make decent contact.
Also, that plug is equipped with a fuse; unscrew the plug body and check the fuse.
I also recall someone having a failed plug on the Tomtom itself; it may be a weak point.

When I put my into an adapter for charging it does not light up or show me when it is done charging. How will I know when it is fully charged?


Is the charger actually working and providing a current to go into your GPS? If you operate the unit without the adapter the battery indicator should reflect a low state and then change when you plug in the adapter. If it still stays low after plugging in adapter, either the adapter is no good or the battery will no longer take a charge.

Can a Duralast jump starter kit start a car while plugged into an outlet?


The charger to a Jumpstart charges at a low rate (300mA to 500mA) and will not push enough current to start a car. Best to have Jumpstarts recharged every 6 months to be ready for emergency.

Can i charge my samsung s860 by plugging in an adapter to the ac/dc jack on the camera when i have rechargeable batteries installed


I'm going to say no, The AC power "jack" as you refer to it as is for external power supply from house hold current this is an optional device if it came with your camera it was a bonus. Anyway back to the question this AC power will not charge batteries and the reason behind this for two reasons is heat and additional size. The camera would have to be enlarged the size of the battery charger to accommodate a charging cycle.

Can I charge my Magellan roadmate with USB cable connected to the computer?


It depends on the Roadmate that you have. :
- If your Roadmate has a separate plug-in port for charging your unit IN ADDITION TO a USB port, then no, your Roadmate cannot be charged using your computer via the USB cable.
- If your Roadmate only has a USB port available for charging your unit, then yes, you can charge it via your computer via USB.
However, please note, according to Magellan, charging your unit using your PC via USB can take up to 12 hours to charge vs. 4-6 hours when using the vehicle power adapter.
FYI: This is mainly due to USB constraints on pretty much all electronic devices. USB cannot carry the same amount of power to a device. It uses what is commonly known as a 'trickle' charge to recharge a device. It carries much less current than a full-blown charger (like an AC power adapter).

CHARGING FAULT


hi friend,
step 1
Make sure you have all of the accessories. Some phones need special adapters for charging. If you're having problems fitting the charger into your cigarette lighter socket, check with your cell phone company. You may need an adapter ring.
  • Step 2 Find the right battery. Certain phones can only be used with batteries from the same company. If you are using a counterfeit battery, be aware that you may not be able to charge it with your current set up.
  • Step 3 Read the manual. Something as simple as charging a battery may take specific instructions. For example, some cell batteries need to be charged immediately while others come fully charged.
  • Step 4 Use your charger. Most cell phone chargers are easy to use plugging right into your phone and home outlet or car electrical cigarette socket. Read your manual on specific steps needed for charging your phone.
  • Step 5 Try Cellboosts. These convenient devices are disposable battery packs that plug into your phone, charging it when the charger isn't accessible. Cellboosts usually last for an hour and are not compatible with all cell phones.
  • Step 6 Go solar. This innovation allows you to charge your phone wherever there is light. Just attach your cell to a portable adapter and let the light do the rest

    My phone only works when it's plugged into the charger


    New batteries are shipped partially charged. Before you start using your device, it is recommended that you charge the battery. Some batteries perform best after several full charge/discharge cycles. You can charge the battery in two ways: • Charging the device’s battery by connecting the power adapter. • Connecting your device to a PC via the provided Mini USB cable. Note: Only the AC adapter and USB cable provided with your device should be used to charge the device. Charging is indicated by a solid amber light on the left LED indicator. As the battery is being charged while the device’s power is on, a charging icon will be shown on the title bar of the Today screen. After the battery has been fully charged, the left LED becomes green and a full battery icon appears on the Today screen’s title bar. Warning! Do not remove the battery from the device while you are charging it using the AC or car adapter. As a safety precaution, the battery stops charging when it overheats. When the low-battery warning appears, do the following: • Immediately save your current data. • Synchronize with your PC or connect the power adapter to charge the battery. • Turn off your device.
    Hope this helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else.

    My GPS won't turn on.


    I had this issue also. When I got it out of the box, it had maybe 30 minutes of playtime without a charge before the battery went low. I used the USB it came with and found plugging it into my laptop AND desktop does absolutely nothing; even though the magellangps.com states the USB can be used as a charger on the PC.

    It's been less than 8 hours since I've had it, and I have not gotten a chance to use the car adapter to charge it... I have a DC/AC unit inside my house which I am using to charge the unit and it works fine (incase you dont know what a DC/AC adapter is; its pretty much a lighter adapter that plugs into the wall).

    MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT -
    With my migraine starter experience with charging and powering on; I have read on 100's of Magellan 3250 reviews that cold tempratures cause these issues.

    Other possible causes:
    Battery is 100% dead = leave it in your car charging (HIDE UNDER THE SEAT!)

    If the USB port plugged in charging in the car; if it is still not working, make sure that the FM part is also plugged in. I found that my GPS does not charge with just the USB end plugged... At least for me, it will only charge with BOTH ports plugged....

    I hoped my novel helped... If it didn't; return your Magellan, and buy a GARMIN GPS. I have a Garmin that I bought for my hubby, and 2 years later, has never once experienced any issues.

    My philips mp3


    Cable or connector faulty? Or your current usb port cannot supply the current needed to charge the player. You could try a externally powered usb hub to see if it will charge. Or borrow a car usb charging adapter with cable and plug that in the player to see if it will charge. It might even be a dead player/battery.
