Thanks everyone, and Iím in no hurry, Iíll wait till we get this hashed out here.
In the meantime.....
Yes the cigarette adapter has a small circuit board inside but as far as I can tell it only is there to handle the tiny LED that indicates power when itís plugged in.
There is NO box that plugs into the wall when using the 110v option.
The cord simply unplugs near the charging base and you choose the 110v plug or the cigarette adapter.
Iím 99.9% sure that anything that is regulating power is built into the base itself.
And this is what the inside of it looks like.
Iím open to any good solutions here, even if itís a different light all together but this is a great flashlight, Iíve had it for years and itís very bright. The light is durable and would work great for what Iím intending.
Iíve had this thing mounted in an out of view spot near my ďsleep timeĒ pistol but I recently got a better light for that use.
Bottom line is I donít have a current use for this light but itís a great light, it wasnít cheap, and the Jeep seemed like a perfect place to put it to use.
I do have a few other lights in the Jeep but they are tucked away in cubbies or tool bags, I even have a couple small one in the console but they get covered up with crap and not always easy to grab when I just need a quick light for something.
Iím in standby mode.
Keep in mind, Iíve been planning on doing the ďpurple wire modĒ, this ďflashlight projectĒ came as an after thought while contemplating the purple wire.
Seemed to me to be a perfect time and place. I really just needed to know if there was/is a ďsafeĒ keyed power source in the harness under the console. You know, the one that wonít freak out the Jeep.
