  • BAD : No surge protection - Burnt in seconds

    posted by Vactirio on 12/14/2007

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Very easy to use (when it works)

    Cons:

    - No SURGE protection !!!
    - Cannot be opened with a screw driver to repair
    - At the DX product page it is not specified the ~550mA limitation
    - The device is not protected if more current is used

    Bottomline:

    I wanted to plug a mini air compressor that I use normally in my car. The adapter just burnt. The 550mA current is very small if you consider that a lot of devices plugged in the car adapter use several Amperes.

    Check well before you buy the current needed.
