I plan to purchase a Viair 85B portable air compressor, which is
designed to get power from a cigarette lighter port.  However, over a
dozen customer reviews warn that this pump will blow the power outlet
fuse.  The compressor is rated at 14.5 amps but based on these
comments, I'm guessing it pulls over 15A under load.

This is what the 2007 Prius Owner's Manual (page 435) says about three
relevant fuses:
12. ACC-B 25A: "POWER OUTLET", "ACC" fuses
19. PWR OUTLET 15A: Power outlet
21. PWR OUTLET FR 15A: Power outlet

Where can I plug in to take advantage of the 25A fuse #12?
