    What usually happens is that someone is using an aftermarket accessory device, like a cell phone charger, MP3 player, etc, and the receptable and the charger's input device aren't a good fit. Thus, by yanking hard on the charging device input, the wire behind the cigarette lighter gets loose or breaks.
