Patrick, just meant as a cautionary note to those who may not be familiar with these things.Ya, but you are still talking about rating your ciggy outlet so you can pull ~24 amps on the +5V side. Unless you are running a dozen+ battery chargers in your car, no one needs that for simple battery charging.
It is not hard to exceed the rated output of modern vehicles 'cigarette lighter' sockets. Many will be flat out charging two Smartphones at once.
And wiring looms are really, really expensive to replace.
At least Subaru put their three sockets on three separate circuits. This is not a commonplace practice among car makers.
I strongly advise people to read their car's owner's manual.
