Has your road angel got a short plug and you are trying to plug it in to a deep socket? :confused:
My works pool vehicle (Citreon C5) has exactly the same problem with its Tom TOM. The shoulders on the charger foul the sides of the plug and it wouln't go down far enough.

Its a bit long but try an extention cable such as item no.180136812120 on ebay. Maplin are also introducing an extention cable for this purpose Maplin > GPS Extension Cable for Lighter Socket but are quoting 28 days delivery.
