VW cigarette lighters are poor in that they are only powered with the ignition on even the one in the boot. You could give it a direct fused feed from another power source.

I have trouble when I use my laptop with VCDS in the car as the laptop battery is shot and I can't find another one at a reasonable price (I've bought another battery today lets see if its right). You can do tests stationary but if you startup to do a running test it cuts out the cigarette lighter so I have to restart the laptop again. I did make an extension lead with the cigarette socket on it but I haven't used it yet.

The same goes when I topup one of the tyres that looses a bit of pressure. I have one of those compressors that uses the cigarette lighter so the ignition is on again.
