Out if the box, the power inverter seemed to only intermittently work. After checking that my SUV had no electrical problems I tried checking the plug. It was a loose fit. So, I bent out the pieces of metal that provide rigidity to the connection. I also noticed that the tip of the plug was shallow. I unscrewed the conical housing and stretched out the spring to provide a solid connection. I double checked the solder on the wiring to see if there were any apparent defects. Seeing none, I tried it out with charging my netbook and phones. Success! Thus far it has worked like a champ.
My husband loves it
The cord could be longer but the overall experience with this device has been astonishing.
It didn't do what I had expected
Works well. Small and compact for on the go.
