Small and compact but fragile – AC to DC 12V 450mA Car Cigarette Lighter Power Adapter (90V~240V AC) Reviews

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.
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).
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.
