BAD : No surge protection - Burnt in seconds – AC to 12V Car Power Adapter (90~240V Input) Reviews

posted by Vactirio on 12/14/2007 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Very easy to use (when it works)
Cons:
- No SURGE protection !!! - Cannot be opened with a screw driver to repair - At the DX product page it is not specified the ~550mA limitation - The device is not protected if more current is used
Other:
Bottomline:
I wanted to plug a mini air compressor that I use normally in my car. The adapter just burnt. The 550mA current is very small if you consider that a lot of devices plugged in the car adapter use several Amperes. Check well before you buy the current needed.
