order some felt tape from amazon and apply a few wraps at a time above the ground tabs on the plug in charger until it sits mostly snug in the 12v port.
this is the tape i use, have had to to do several times:
the 12v outlets have enough fuse to operate a charger.
Cigarette lighter socket is usually protected by 15A fuse. Your typical high power usb charger produces 2-3 A at 5v, roughly half of that converted into 12v rating so there’s no reason not to use cigarette lighter socket to draw power to charge phones or GoPro.
Why does it have to be felt tape?
For its Thickness?
Prevent catching fire?
I just checked and there is no room above the tabs (on the end sticking out of the socket). Do you mean on the end that goes into the socket?
Can you provide a pic of yours please?
Mine is loose and just pops out.
