Spider cigarette lighter socket

Is the cigarette lighter socket on a Spider an unusual size? The reason i ask is that my Michelin tyre compressor plug doesn't fit very well. It does work but sonetimes dislodges by itself. I've never had that happen on any other car. Alternatively, is there another 12V outlet on the car?

I've plugged at least four different devices into my Spider lighter socket. Seems normal to me and as far as I know, there's only one socket.

Mine is a pain too - very temperamental connection and sat nav cable often becomes dislodged.

Looked into it a bit more and a common suggestion is to bend the metal strips on the plug itself outwards a bit more so that it forms a more snug fit.
