    Exclamation blown fuse

    Hi all, im a newbie, originally posted this in the wrong section, i have just bought a astra 1.6 8v on a w reg, went to put my phone on charge to find no power from the cigarette outlet/ checked the fuse and it had blown, replaced the 20 amp fuse only for it to instantly blow, anyone any ideas as what could be the cause I would like to see if im able to fix it myself before calling a auto electrician, thanks.

    I had the same problem, was just a dodgy charger I think, as cig lighter + pump for air bed worked fine it.

    Have a new phone with a different charger now, so going to give it a try to see if this one works ok.
