Have a Nice Day? Cigarette lighter question

In my 2.5RS Manual it says that the cigarette lighter can only be used with the Subaru Cigarette Lighter and it cannot be used to plug phone's or other devices into? Is that true??? What's the deal...

That sounds like a CYA clause. I'm sure it's not a buffered power supply point, so they put that there in case somebody blows up a cheap phone. Reduces their liability.

Thanks Guys. I figured it was a BS deal but wanted to make sure before I plug anything in there.

I plug an air compressor into the lighter with no problem.

I plug my phone in all the time. My only complaint is that it is only powered with the engine running or the key in the second position. I used to leave my phone plugged in while I was at work and can't do that with this car.

Yeah, I plug in my phone all the time and it doesn't have any problems... except when I try and plug in a G-Tech Pro it doesn't hold very well but it still powers it up.
