Are there any voltage differences between the two cigratte lighter sockets on IS350?

OK this is odd-- I got a low profile USB cigarette lighter charger, mainly so that I could close the ash tray when it's not in use (it actually does fit perfectly and I can close the ash tray). Here's the weird thing: when I plug it into the arm rest cigarette lighter it works fine, but when I plug it into the ash tray cigarette lighter I get nothing. Yet the ash tray cigarette lighter works fine with my old USB I know the lighter itself works. Are there any technical differences between the two that might explain this behavior (or any work around?)
