    Cheap and useful in the glove box for emergencies.

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

    Pros:
    Appears to output accurately 5V 500mA. Useful as an emergency charger for your smartphone or any device that would charge via a regular computer USB port (this would exclude most tablets but include most smartphones). Device is very well-built. LED light le...
    Cons:
    Not really a con, but be aware that it only provides a low amperage (same specification as USB port power), so it doesn't charg...

    Looks great, works well

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

    Pros:
    Sleek, good-looking and unobtrusive. It just about fits flush in the cigarette lighter socket but has enough of a lip on it to ensure you can remove the unit quite easily. Fantastic build quality which makes the plastic chargers you get with your phone/gps/...
    Cons:
    None that I can come up with.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    this device has a sleek, low profile design that makes it handy when I need it and keeps it out of the way when I don't need it. this adapter supplies enough amperage for everything but my samsung galaxy tab 10.1 (though I have it overclocked, so that caus...
    Cons:
    as mentioned above, the output level of this adapter is insufficient to charge my tablet, so that's disappointing. that said, ...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Perfect

    posted by Mattndmann on 11/10/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very useful product, nice to use it. It don't get too hot when charging my hands free, and mobile phone. Nice design, little product, fits perfectly I think it's good that it charges at 500mah, to don't overload batteries!
    Cons:
    No cons Maybe it could be some milimeter shorter to fit exactly.

    The best cigarette powered USB charger at DX

    posted by JeroenVW on 07/12/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I tested different types of charges from DX, and this one is the smallest USB charger there is at DX. The design (with some aluminum) is nice too. It works great with USB chargable phones and navigation systems.
    Cons:
    - It could be smaller (shorter). - It gets really hot. But maybe this is by design? - The plastic breaks easaly, sometimes duri...
