Anyone else have the VW flashlight (from the Touareg)? It's supposed to charge in the cigarette lighter, but every time I put it in there, it blows the 15A fuse.

Anyone know how much current they draw so I can use the appropriate fuse?

I had mine since last year and no problems.

Hmm... And it's only when I put the light in there too.. I can use anything else that needs the cig lighter without blowing it. Weird.

Seems almost like it's grounding out as soon as you put it in.

Yea I'm wondering if it's a short somewhere in the flashlight... I got it literally straight out of a Touareg...[;)]

sounds like you have either a bad light or a bad lighter plug.
