4 out of 5 eggsgood value, slightly dirty conversion

Pros: Easy to install, fits in glove box
I use it to power an original xbox with XBMC to work as the media center for my car

Cons: Slightly dirty signal, causes interference in the video and audio signal of the xbox, where my previous inverter did not.

Other Thoughts: Would not use for another a/v project, but not a big enough deal to replace. Great for charging devices

5 out of 5 eggs  Must have if your on the road

Pros: Very useful and has a USB connection. I have had one for many years and even bought two extra ones for my son and son-in-law. They are great for a person who is on the road a lot. My sons quit working about 6 months of weekly use and I mailed it to cobra for repairs and was sent a new one within a week.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: Will always have one in my vehicle.

2 out of 5 eggsCool but not reliable

Pros: Looks cool
Can Change Multiple items at once
12v port in the truck or battery connect options

Cons: Not Reliable
Fried quickly

Other Thoughts: So,
I'm in the Army, got this to charge our phones and Ipods while were in the field, and to put in my truck incase of emergency. Well, it didn't last longer than the field before it fried!
It looked cool! Everyone loved it, and said it was awesome! I thought it was awesome! But in the end, it didn't last more than 20 days of use. Now I'm left with this hunk of junk. I've contacted the supplier, and waiting for a reply. I want a new replacement unit, and I should not have to send it in for shipping on my dime either!

I'll repost when they reply, if they reply.

DONT LET THE PRICE FOOL YOU! Buy the Rosewill 150v Can Size Converter, now that thing is reliable, 1yr plus of constant use and its still running strong!
