Works well. – Universal Car Adapter for Laptops Reviews

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

Pros:
Very cheap compared to the ones sold here in Norway. The build quality is about the same as the ones available here at a cost of around $90.00!
It charged up my netbook really fast.
Cons:
The sliding switch is confusing and mistakes can be indeed expensive. One has to count the clicks and because of the consequences, I double and triple check every time I use it. I never know if someone has fiddled with it while I was away from the car.
The + and - signs on the adapters are useless, being in the middle of nowhere.
Other:
Another switch setup would make this product a dream. I am thinking of a dial switch with a screwdriver slot with an arrow with the different voltages printed around this dial switch. The cable from the lighter plug could have been a bit longer as the unit hangs from the plug while in use.
Bottomline:
Overall I am quite happy with his product. These things are expensive here and been looking at them in the shops here but was not prepared to part with $90.00.
