Did not fit very good. – Car Cigarette Lighter Socket Rechargeable 0.5W Mini LED Flashlight (Blue) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
I bought 2 of these, one for me and one as a xmas present to my father. The build quality is very good, it does not feal like a cheap product. The idea of this product is great, what better to have in your cigarette lighter hole if you don't smoke (or need it for phone charger, gps etc..)
Cons:
-It did not fit into my car (passat) nor my father (Mercedes) car, the diameter of the light was too small so it does not get proper contact with the connectors. (you can perhaps put onan o-ring or lodge some paper down with it) - when it does charge there is an annoying red light that is always on. - The light sticks up just enough so that the cover over the ashtray/cigarettehole dont come on (in both passat and mercedes) - The beam of light is "off" (if you hold the flashlight straight, the beam of light will go to one side)
Other:
Bottomline:
If you do some research on the diameter of your "lighter-hole" and also the cover over your ashtray/cigarettelighter space (if you have that in your car) this is a great emergency light.
