You could hardwire it into your fusebox !
Or just make sure you fully charge it from a mains plug before each journey.
Or fix the cigarette lighter.

If there really is no 12V socket anywhere in the car, then a decent mechanic could wire it into the fuse box for you for a few quid.

Your Dad could solder one end into the fuse box, or even join it to the ignition wires, and then you just plug the usual end into the unit. He'll know what to do.

Don't worry about dimebarz, he's still sore about the result last night. At least your Mum found it, and all will be well. :thumbsup:
