Default Cigarette Lighter Blowing Fuses

Sorry, I know this has been posted plenty of times before and that it is a common problem. My question is; "Has anyone found a fix for this"? As long as my fiance' keeps her Motorola car charger plugged in at all times (car on or off) it has no problems but if she removes it when the car is running it blows the fuse. For example her friend was riding passanger the other day and unplugged it and plugged her phone charger in and the fuse blew.

odd you mention that because I have used both front and back 12v outlets to power gps, power inverter, radar detector, phone charger or any of the above (or all of the above through a splitter) at some point... no fuse issues on my end..
