Just wondering if it works or if there would be any issues using it with the elise.
You are encouraged to replace that lighter socket with the American replacement - sold at Radio Shack. They fit perfect. Not a hard mod at all.I doubt if they would work on an Elise without an adapter for the cigarette lighter. The lighter is British; it's diameter is larger than the American cigarette lighter. There is an adapter, but I could never get it to work.
Most are useless because they do not have sufficient starting amps.I have a Duracell branded model purchased from amazon. its basically useless - I ended up buying a 500 amp black and decker jumpstarter from home depot. I tried the 350 amp, it wasn't enough to start the car. Even the 500 isn't enough to plug-and-start immediately if the battery is severely depleted.
