    Is it okay for me to have this outlet plugged into my cigarette lighter at all times (NOT IN USE AT ALL TIMES)?

    I'm fairly sure the power is cut to the lighter/aux outlets when the ignition is off. So, no it should not be a problem.

    What does this do?

    And for others; what about while my engine is on and the thing is plugged in. Will I be killing my battery quicker this way?
    Should I just unplug it when not in use?
