Cigarette Lighter

I would like to have my phone on charge all the time via the 12v cigarette lighter in my Alfa 156 53 plate and probably wire the cable in the gap where the hinges are in the ash tray (or make a little hole for the cable to poke out). The problem is that when its plugged in the ashtray door won't close because the lead is too fat! So I can think of two options:

1) Find an extension lead which will fit in the ash tray, does anybody know of any that are small?

2) Or rearrange the cigarette lighter, moving it back or something?

Your thoughts would be great thanks.

Because mobile phones draw so little power, in your situation I would probably wire a new socket in behind the radio, taking power from the radio supply. I don't have a 156 so I'm not sure where you could run the cable.
