Gets the job done (little more) – AC to DC 12V 450mA Car Cigarette Lighter Power Adapter (90V~240V AC) Reviews

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

Pros:
* Very cheap solution for devices that only have car lighter power adapters
* Usually just charges devices - which might take longer using this but works like a charm
Cons:
Says it puts out 550mAh. I think it puts out even less, never bothered checking. Either way when I use it with my portable DVD player I can charge it pretty easily but I can't run it on AC power since it draws more power than it can supply.
Other:
You get what you pay for ;)
Bottomline:
If you need to charge devices you don't have an AC adapter for this is for you. It's cheap and it gets the job done.
If you want to run those devices while plugged in you should check the power rating first.
