    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    This adapter is much smaller than it looks in the photos. It has a switching regulator that is rated > 1000mA (@12V) so there won't be the nasty meltdown experienced with cheaper adapters.

    Cons:

    If your car doesn't turn off the socket when the ignition is off, then the LED (and quiescent current of the regulator) will drain your battery slowly.

    OtherThoughts:

    I initially bought two of these. Since they arrived and I discovered the switching regulator inside, I have ordered 10 - some for friends and some for projects that need a stable 5V supply.

    Bottomline:

    If it fits your car, you can't go wrong.
