Twelve volt recepticles that will accept and energize cigarette lighters shall be installed in a noncombustable outlet box, or the assembly shall be identified by the manufacturer of the product as thermally protected.

Sparky, You have impressed me. I would not have even thought of looking for anything regarding cigarette lighters in the code. Read your post and immediately picked up the code book from the shelf. Got to get to reading more.
