Wink Re: cigar,cigerette lighter,difference

As I remember the only difference was the part that plugged in. The cigar version used a heavier NiChrome wire that took forever to heat up (which is good because it stay hot long enough to light bulky tight wrapped cigars). I don't think this was a factory option, but was offered more as a dealer upgrade.

Is the Tiparillo somewhere in between?
