How to hard wire a cell phone car charger?

Well i just got this new phone and I want to hard wire a car charger.
How do I do this since the car chargers use the cigarette lighter outlet type that usually has the fuse inside of it?
Or should I use the house charger and hard wire it?

And where can I get the power from, the socket in the armrest wires?

Why not just plug into the power plug in the console and hang the charge cord out the passenger side through the slot provided (see picture below)? The console power plug is ON at all times... and keeps my phone charged every day while I'm at work (can't bring camera phones onto the plant site).

there are several ways to do it, but you need to provide some information.

typically cell phones charge at 3.6 to 5 volt, our cars run at 12 -14.4 volts. if not done right then you can blow your phone up.

what kind of phone is it, and what kind of connection on the phone (USB?)

I have several diagrams for different phones that I have done, like you I hate cig lighter plugs...

If your phone has a USB connection I can give you a diagram that allows you to wire a USB port on you car.

or

check out

ProClip Mounting System *-*Choose Your Country they have some cool brackets for mounting your phone on the dash, and some of them include chargers built in with the correct voltage.

It is not a mini USB Mr. I.
The mini USB is just like the Motorola Razr's right?
THis does not have the same plug.
This plug is almost double as wide as the mini USB plug.
BTW, i guess Ill have to tell u the voltage when I get home cause im at work.

it's still USB, I checked the specs, just a Samsung special USB..probably 5 volts... pretty easy to wire in.

Cool

Couldn't he just cut of the Cigarette adapter and hard wire it in? Thats all I did and mine works fine. I think his concern was the fuse inside the adapter.(I could be wrong since I speed read and I may have miss the key point in his post and I'm too lazy to re-read the post again).

I did not worry about fuses since my source was behind a fuse and the stranded wire gage connected to the charger adapter was so small 32 or 34 gage maybe even smaller would burn into if there was a short anyway. The element in the fuse looks to be the same size as the wire gage that ran to the phone. It was that small. Now I know why these things break so easy.

Of course if his car adapter has some voltage regulator in it, then thats another story (Mine did not, GO Nokia !!) and my approach to the solution is not for him.
