Did it blow the fuse again when you replaced it or only when you plugged in your cell charger? Between the 'hot' you mention, it sounds like you have an issue w/ the charger. So, try another accessory or your cell charger in another vehicle to see what happens. Over the years I've had numerous cell chargers go bad so this certainly shouldn't be overlooked. Also, ensure there isn't anything stuck in the outlet like a coin or gum-wrapper etc. Finally, check the 4 pronged cable behind the center console (for aux phone hook up). IIRC it's on the same fuse and oddly sometimes will make contact w/ a metal bolt or plate down there causing a short.

Good luck :)
