    This is more of an iGav submission, but I couldn't pass it up.

    I'd love to see one of these car lighters installed into the bay of a computer. If anyone knows of one or splurges for it - take a pic of the thing ;)

    Outstanding!

    I sure hope they ship internationally -- they won't get too many orders from NYC, but I'll bet it would be a good seller in Paris or Seoul even if it couldn't charge a cell phone!

    I wonder if I could put one in a 5.25" external enclosure and plug it into a FireWire connection....:D

    Thanks, folks! You've been great! I'll be here all week!:D

    Re: Outstanding!

    Yeah, those Euros and Koreans really like their smokes...

    What a great idea, too! Id actually enjoy the novelty of charging my cell phone via my computer cigarette lighter/12v power slot.

    That is totally awesome. It would be a great thing to show my geek friends. heh.

    $15.00 is a bit pricy though...

    System.out.println("Java is annoying");

    cout << "from my experiences I like c++ better" << endl;

    but that is off topic, sorry.

    i'm surprised it doesn't short circuit? there's got to be a lot of feedback... but ah, i really want one, and i think i could install it in my old CRT iMac... with a few modifications...

    this is great :)

    What about

    an electric pencil sharpener/ stapler..we'll call this the combo drive.

    The superdrive model will include a hole puncher.

    The only reason that it is of any value is to charge or run a cell phone or lap top. You would also need an adaptor. It should have the Apple logo inprinted instead of a cigarette. We don't want to tarnish the Mac, unless the idea is that it's just for window's! :p

    You've totally missed the point here.

    It is pretty much useless - about as useful as that extra 3rd of 4th drive bay on a pc anyway ;) Why not spend $15 and put a cigarette lighter in? And it is a working lighter, not just to be used for power :D

    that's a wee bit harsh, but the idea of a cig lighter in my spare optical bay is interesting to say the least

    Hey don'y knock the neons, and that wooden case look great but a little over priced.

    have a look @ www.coolerguys.com for all your wackie overclocking and case moding ambitions
