It's quite OK - recommended. – USB 4-port Car Adapter Reviews

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

Pros:
It's working. 4 USB sockets + 1 phone dedicated. Build quality is quite ok. It's worth it's money.
Cons:
First of all - it's noisy. Nobody mentioned it before, but where circuits are operating you can here hi-tone noise - really, really annoying (even radio can't distract from that noise). When you think for a while, it's quite normal for that kind of DC-DC converters - but... did I'v mentioned it's annoying? :))
Cable for charging mobile phones is definitely too short (I use other USB charger), and small Nokia connecter does not work either (it's to small and you have to bend it, to connect properly inside Nokia socket).
Other:
Haven't found FM transmitter (inside either).
Bottomline:
Overall I think it's good device. It uses DC-DC converter with better efficiency that common resistors converters. I haven't noticed lack of power with 3 devices plugged in. So If you need USB in your car/yacht etc. (and you are a bit deaf ;) - it's a joke :D ) - it's worth to buy this one.
