Default how do i turn my cigarette lighter into a powerpoint?

Ok guys I have no use for a cigarette lighter, most of the time I have to charge my phone. And I'm about to get a radar detector, so I want to know if I can somehow make the cigarette lighter a powerpoint? Thanks guys

...They do the exact same thing. Just plug it in, and you're fine.

Don't all trucks come with 2 ports?

Why not hardwire your radar detector and charge your phpne before hand/get another battery?
