Ice Ice Camry!

I have a 98 Camry with leather seats and I live in Arizona. As you may have surmised, I am an idiot. The car has been great though, and I'm not getting rid of it anytime soon. My problem is that I have a long commute and by the time I get to work or home my pants & the back of my shirt are plastered to me, no matter how much I blast the AC. I'm thinking I need some sort of seat pad that provides ventilation and maybe active cooling. Any recommendations?

Name that socket!

My 1998 Camry has a socket in the dashboard underneath the cigarette lighter that is the same size & shape as a cigarette lighter socket but has a cover over it that says "110V". If I plug in my cell phone charger to this socket it doesn't work, I assume because the voltage on the charger doesn't match. My question: If I would like to power something from this socket with a standard household 2-pronged plug, what sort of adapter do I need? What's it called? Sorry for my lack of 'lectrical lingo knowledge.
