Question Car Cigar Power Port

Hey guys, just wondering but I searched for a while today for another cigar power port (sorry I don't know the technical name for it) in the back of the car. Is there another one buried away somewhere? I'm using the one in the front of the car, but I can't find the one in the back.

Thank you,
Masterwares

No mw, there isn't one. I had to run a wire from front to back then put a double socket in the cubby hole where the jack goes.

Did you piggyback off the existing socket?

Still.................mustn't grumble

Remember the days when cars had actual cigarette lighters? It seems most things these days are powered by USB and I can foresee a time when the little round hole goes away...

Maybe, maybe not. USB ports don't deliver enough power to run, for example, an AC power inverter to run a laptop or a small refrigerated cooler which are fairly commonly used items for business people, campers, etc.
