    How hard would it be to wire in another 12v outlet in the boot or in the back for passengers?

    I've got a saloon and could do with an extra port!

    It would depend on yourself!

    I would find it dead easy to do!

    but if you don't know the difference between a spanner and a screwdriver you would struggle!!

    what sort of port you putting in? a cig lighter? if so it would be really easy not sure where you would put it though!

    find a place drill a hole big enough to except the port then wire it up not forgetting to put an inline fuse in for protection

    I've got a double 12V and USB charger wired off the fag lighter fuse (fused separately) in my cubby hole and a single one piggy-backed off the tow-bar electrics in the boot.

    If you don't know, then any decent auto-sparky will wire one up for you for £20 tops, especially if you take the glove-box out :)

    Highly recommended so you can charge phones, sat-navs and laptops out of sight!
