The cigarette lighter has served as the de facto standard connection for after-market devices for many years. It is prone to vibrational disconnects and is difficult to style into the vehicle. A new connection, designed under the auspices of the United States Council for Automotive Research (USCAR), has been endorsed by the after-market as a more reliable and more robust method of connection.
