you should be able to find a power source inside the cabin that can efficiantly pwer the neons. if you want you can go straight to the battery, but make sur you put in a fuse some where. there is also a downside to doing that, if your forgetfull like me, because they won't shutoff when you turn the car off

yeah, but get the 'thicker' wire as 'skinny' as possible

since the cig lighter is only given so much power to begin with...you don't need an overly thick wire. if x amount of current is supplied to a source..and you tap into that source..then you only need a wire just thick enough to carry that x amount of current. any more is overkill.

i'm not saying to get 4 gauge or something, just thicker than the wires on the neon, actually though, if you don't have any wire and don't want to spend the money, you can use two wires from the source to the switch, it would work just as well
