Ok, but the Amperage sucks – Universal AC to 12V Car Cigarette Lighter Power Adapter Reviews

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

Pros:
It's easy to use. It's compact. You can bring it anywhere you want.
Cons:
The amperage is only .5 AMP, so it's not really useful for much else than charging a cellphone or a gps if you only have a car plug. I went to blow up an air mattress because I only have a car adapter for it, and the thing wouldn't even turn on. The amperage is just too low for any device that has any guts. Build quality is so-so.
Other:
Check your device's AMPs before purchasing this item.
Bottomline:
If you only need it for recharging things, it's not a bad purchase.
