In the car, it has the device people usually called as "cigar jack". But I've never seen that using "cigar jack" to light the cigar. Well, I'm just curious, Is anyone in here have tried the "cigar jack" to light cigars before?

    You mean the cigarette lighter?

    Judging by the previous posts, I'm not the only one that's never heard it called a cigar jack before.

    I googled it, because I'd never heard of a cigar jack before either. There were plenty of results for parts sales of the same things we know as 12 volt car cigarette lighters.  Maybe the "cigar jack" term is used more in foreign countries as DrMundo's language sometimes seems foreign also.

    I thought it was a midget named Jack that you kept in your car to light your sticks.

    Cigar Jack?



    I guess historically it was invented for lighting cigars (from Wikipedia) but cigarettes became more common:

    The electrical cigar-lighter was invented and patented in the early 1880s by the German inventor Friedrich Wilhelm Schindler (de).[citation needed] In the 1890s, these tools were sold as electrical cigar lighters (Cigarrenanzuender), and later as Zigarrenanzuender in the major German warehouse catalogues.[citation needed] Probably in the 1920s they were renamed "cigarette lighters", as cigarettes overtook cigars in sales.
