Cons:

-Ruptures if left in the sunlight

Other Thoughts:

I had this item a few years back. Bought it from a retail store that shall remain un-named. It worked as a replacement to my broken cigarette lighter in my car (to charge the GPS unit).

I left it stuck to my windshield, it eventually ruptured from the heat of the sun. I'm lucky it didn't start a fire, I could have lost my car.

On the one hand, I kinda understand why you shouldn't leave this out and unattended in the sunlight.

On the other hand, it's a >>SOLAR<< battery, and it explodes in the sunlight. This is a critical and potentially deadly/costly defect. If you purchase this item, be sure to NEVER leave it in the sunlight for extended periods of time. This item is too dangerous for me to repurchase, but it did work as advertised.

You have been warned, I was lucky that it caused no damage.
