Cigarette Lighter

My cigarette lighter doesn't function. Is there anything else to look for besides if the fuse is bad? Its been something Ive been meaning to get around to fixing. Its not real fun when you cant use it for power accessories like cell phone charger, radar and things like that. I havent look at it yet but isnt there just a live (hot) from the fuse box ran to the cigarette lighter?
