Folks,
I want to tap electrical power in inconspicuous place, not a cigarette lighter socket.

I want to use it to charge cell phone. I think flash light connector will be convinient:
I can emulate flashlight connector by machinning piece of plastic, and have functional ease of cigarette lighter with benefit of having stuff hidden.

Does anyone know of any complications of connecting cellphone charger to flashlight circuit? What is the output voltage there, how many amps?

The car is 2002 325i

Thanks in advance,
Relevart
