    Works well but build quality could be improved

    posted by SirNomad on 02/10/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This device has been very handy. My girlfriend's cat managed to chew through the cord of my MP3 player's USB charging cable so I bought 3 of these (2 as gifts) so that I could use the car charger. It works exactly as described.
    Cons:
    I tried using this device with a couple of higher current draw items (one of those little car tire inflators and a car vacuum) ...
