I mean it'd be rather simple, just buy another lighter socket from any place and just find a constant 12v and a ground and just make a custom holder I would presume.

Some CL203/W203 have cigarette lighter/electrical socket located at bottom rear of centre console for back seat passengers. Thus, factory parts would be available.

If you need cigarette lighter/electrical socket in trunk you can probably tap into fuse box on left side of trunk.

i know there is a constant power that everyone taps into at the rear sam for amps so that would work.

Wagons have a DC socket in the rear. It has a spring loaded cover to keep the insects out I guess. It is mounted on the covering for the rear fuse block. There is a fuse holder in the block for the socket. Add the fuse, the socket, and wire per the diagram in the WIS. Don't skip the fuse to protect the wiring from overload. You don't want a short to turn your ride into a Car-Be-Que.

I use the socket to power a Peltier cooler or an inverter to run a blender for tailgating at football games.
