Make power port (cigarette lighter) always on

Has anyone found a quick and easy way to make one or both of these hot all the time? Sometimes it would be nice to charge a dead cell phone while the car is parked. There was a solution for my Forrester which was as simple as eliminating a relay with a jumper. I could research this but just checking to see if it's been done already. Call me lazy...

Pretty easy. Identify the fuse for the power port(s) you want on full time then find a fuse (or unused fuse port) that 'is' full time and link the two using a couple of add-a-fuses. Check out this 'how to' on the Toyota Highlander forum.

Cheers
