switched relay?

has anyone tried to tap the cigarette lighter power to activate a relay? I want to install a rechargable flashlight, and wire the charger into an ignition switched source. As far as I know the only one available is the cigarette lighter, so I want to tap that and use it to trip a relay sending power to the charger. I know nothing about this canbus nonsnese and dont want my jeep to end up having as much of a fried brain as me. Any thoughts? thanx again folks and stay safe.

Yes, I am using the drivers side power outlet to trigger the relay in the Circuit Boss fuse block I installed in mine. Be sure to note that this outlet is powered by the delayed power off circuit.
