Small and compact but fragile – 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 a very small and compact outlet-to-car charger converter. It features european prongs and works with all voltages in the 90/240 range. With a prong adapter you can use it in the US as well.
Cons:
Mine blew after a few uses. I plugged an apparatus in and it make a "whoomp"-like sound, then died. The led is not lighting up anymore and the adapter does not provide any more power. I think it blew a fuse or something. It is difficult to say as it is not easy to open (and besides, it's almost chaper to buy another one than fixing this one).
Other:
Bottomline:
Overall it looks fine, but my experience tells me the quality of this is not up to par with other stuff here on DX. Since I don't like to play when 220V electricity is involved, I decided against replacing it.
