2 out of 5 eggsThank Goodness They Discontinued This One

Pros: It worked for a while

Cons: It stopped working

Other Thoughts: Received it for XMAS two years ago and maybe used it a dozen times. When it was working it powered my phone and playstation on those long trips. Recently took another trip and it went sizzle, sizzle, silent. Oh well...

5 out of 5 eggsVery please

Pros: Love it! We had problems in our car with a bum cigarette outlet so only one worked. We had an emergency trip to for a funeral and decided to take our 4 kids. I was able to run 2 portable DVD players, charge a phone and an iPad, and charge a PSP simultaneously (extension cords). Couldn't be happier with it.

Cons: None so far.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's OK

Pros: Works OK with lights and other resistive loads.

Cons: Doesn't play well with powering switching power supplies. It also trips easily (sometimes due to high in-rush current sometimes due to non-resistive loads) and unless you are using incandescent lights as loads you are not going to get anywhere close to the spec'd 400W.

Other Thoughts: It is good for light use in emergency situations, but wouldn't recommend powering devices that use switching power supplies.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked great, until it didn't.

Pros: Not huge, and did the job mostly. I used this in the car for powering a 15" MacBook pro and an iPad or iPhone on the go. It worked mostly but was at the upper end of its power draw capability, which at 400w stated it should not be.

Cons: After about 6-8 months the fan would die and it would make horrible beeping noises and turn off...

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Does just what it should.
I have used several inverters, previously, from other brands. (am used to how they work).

This one seems to work just great and has the USB connector I wanted it for, as well as a decent aluminum case (not plastic like some others I have used).

Great for the price.

Cons: No cup-holders. (Um, that's a joke!)

Other Thoughts: For anyone looking for a basic unit that has a USB port, sturdy case and quiet operation, I recommend this unit.

1 out of 5 eggsOverheats

Pros: Looks good

Cons: Didn't use for six months, ran a 5w fountain pump in 82 degree heat in the shade...warning buzzer. Probably ok if you live on the north pole and want to run a small LED light...Very Disappointed
