Exclamation Cigarette lighter problems

My Cobalt is a 2008 LS and neither one of the cigarette lighters are working. I can't seem to find the fuse in either of the fuse boxes. What is it labeled in the owner's manual and on the actual fuse box?

if you even blew the fuse, how do you think you did it? my ipod is always plugged into my cigarette lighter. not sure if it would be enough to blow a fuse, but it just got me thinking

turned out i did blow the fuse. i was told if you leave anything plugged into the cigarette lighters whether the car is on or off, it can blow the fuse and ruin the charger. it happened to my phone charger.

anyway, THANKS for the pics guys that solved my problem! got some fuses yesterday and the cigarette lighter is working!
