Essential for that time of day at 32c, done for the day and safely tucked up in hotel car park in Lille while watching thunderstorm!


If only I could think of something useful to type here!! :(

Having to bail as there's no light left and I'm working by flood light in the car which every now and then blinds me when I need to look for tools laying next to it!!

While the fitting in the smokers pack ashtray is tight, I need to find a way of better securing it as if you just pull the USB plug (and people will), you can rip the unit out.
Am thinking just some gorilla glue down each side behind?

Also need to look at filling in the gaps. The ashtray is larger than the USB adapter and therefore leaves a gap depending where you position it.

Overall I'm still very pleased with the accessibility of the sockets there though.

I think you're right Clive, that might just fix his problems securing it :shark:
