Works Great – AC to DC 12V 450mA Car Cigarette Lighter Power Adapter (90V~240V AC) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
This is built really well and doesn't look like a cheap build of plastic.
I've used this to charge my cell phone, Nintendo Ds and my PMP without any problems.
I keep this in my car with my chargers, this way I can charge my devices if I'm somewhere else without having to worry about sitting in the car and wasting my battery in order to charge. Also, cell phone chargers tend to be cheaper than wall chargers for some reason.
Cons:
None
Other:
If it matters, mine says it outputs to 550MA even though the website says 450MA.
I accidentally bought the European 2-prong plug instead of the American 2-prong plug. I easily fixed this by getting a cheap converter from the dollar store. However, I'm a little nervous about plugging my DVD player into this because of the extra 'layer' so I can't tell how well it will work with heavier equipment. I did order the American 2-prong one so I will test it with and review that one when I receive it.
Bottomline:
This works great for me!
