<< I got a mini refrigerator that has a car lighter plug. Now I have to
figure out how to turn it into a tank chiller. Question -- how much
current/voltage can you draw through your car's cig lighter without
damaging the car's electrical system? That's probably a question for a
different list, but I know there are some tech-savvy people here.

Mark, Mark, Mark! A tank chiller in your car? Everyone knows all you have to
do is run cooling coils through the AC ducts and turn on your AC full blast!
The fridge is for your beer! Your cigarette lighter should have a 15 amp fuse
that will blow if you try to cool too much beer. In that case replace it with
a 30 amp fuse and keep a CO2 fire extinguisher in the car to cool down hot
beer in case the fuse blows anyway!
