Cigarette wont charge ipod but working.

i have a 08 1.6 tdci focus that wont charge my ipod with the cigarette usb adaptor. I have tested it in a mates civic and it charges. the cigarette charger works with other devices and the cigarette lighter itself. Is it a voltage restriction in fords vs Honda or just a bad contact.

Also i am hoping to get a Dash-cam soon, will the port suffice?

Likely poor contact.

If you actually USE the cigarette lighter the socket tends to get dirty/corroded in the area auxiliary devices contact. Lighter contacts at the edge clips, aux. devices need contact at the center.
