Convert 12v cig lighter plug to 12v switched live

Post by TomIreB8Passat » Sun Feb 23, 2020 9:32 pm

Hi all,

Ive a dash cam that im only getting around to looking at.

Its a budget 1080p mini, but reviews are decent so want to give it a go.

HOWEVER, i despise cables cluttering up the place and the position of 12v charger in my B8 makes it a balls.

So..... im looking at just dismantling the 12v cig charger plug cable and extending it as far as the fusebox and using an expansion 12v switched live.

Question for those electrically minded.... Any issues with doing this in your opinion(s)? Its a power and earth so whats the worst that could happen ...... right :-s

Presuming a simple enough affair.
