Lighter keeps blowing fuses..02 Zetec

I use the lighter to power/charge my cell phone and have had no issues until about 2 months ago. All of a sudden, the fuse for the cigarette lighter keeps blowing a few days after replacing it. I have added no additional draw on the circuit so don't know why the fuse keeps going bad. Since this is the only power source, keeping the cell phone going, using the lighter, has become a challenge. Suggestions? Thanks...

I use mine for the same reason, and my lighter also blew my fuse everytime I used it. At first i just kept a lighter in my car, but then i quite smoking! So i don't have to deal with it any more. I have no clue why it does this or how to fix it but if anyone does it would be nice to just no why the heck it does that.
