Seems like a cap will help the shorting issue:

It's an obnoxious no-smoking version but the plain blanks are just as good.

I've run a 3.1 (1&2.1) charger in my armrest socket without issues. I will probably avoid trying to use an inverter since it sounds like it can't take much.

I changed mine today, picked the car up last Friday bought a wireless phone charger only to find its blown. it's fiddly but doable. BMW blanks are 7! outrageous
Mine blew as well. If you remove 2 screws on the panel below the glove box it then un clips and drops down about 8 inches and you can get at the fuses easier. You do not need long nose pliers. Fuse 54 is next to the top. (a good torch helps)

Is it a 20 amp fuse in the glove box like they say it is?

Somewhat of a pain to get to but yes, 20amp fuse in the glove box as shown in the attached pic. Took me just a few minutes to replace it.
