1 out of 5 eggsPoor quality and cheaply designed

Pros: *Slim Design
*Includes adapters for both 12V Cigarette and 12V Airline
*Doubles as USB charger

Cons: *As other users have stated, gets very hot with no load
* Small fan is noisy and inadequate
* Poor Build quality
* Shuts off constantly even when well under the rated wattage.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this unit for about a year and have used it mainly to charge my laptop (65 watt DELL) for work while on go. YOU have to kept it flat on a seat and make sure not to block the vents which are stupidly placed on the top and bottom of the unit, other wise it will overheat and burn out. After a year, it finally decided to give out while charging a battery for a hand drill. I noticed the unit was very hot, the rated load of the charger was only 26 watts,.. Oh well at least it wasn't terribly expensive , stay away if you can.

1 out of 5 eggsLow quality - oveheated and melted

Pros: Compact case design, has a cooling fan, specs look ok

Cons: Low quality plastic construction can't begin to adequately cool the internal electronics. It needs a larger aluminum heatsink and a better fan.

It overheated and shuts off with any load over about 25 watts. Tiny cooling fan is too small and can't keep up.

Can't run a 15.4" laptop, it just shuts off. It ran a smaller laptop for 10 minutes (at 35 watts) before melting the plastic case and it smells like burning plastic.

Also very inefficient, it runs hot on it's own with no load attached so it has no chance of running something else very well.

Other Thoughts: Yes, we know manufacturers overrate DC inverters by a long shot, but this one can't handle even 1/4th of what they claim without melting.

1 out of 5 eggsOver Rated

Pros: Small, USB Charging

Cons: Can charge small things only. I would estimate Continuous power is maxed out at 60Watts. Anything more, it would shut off. It can charge my Dell D420 1.06GHz ULV Core Duo, but it shuts off when I tried to charge my Toshiba Pentium4 2.53 GHz laptop.

Other Thoughts: How can such a tiny board can support 120Watts? B/S.
