Affordable, durable power inverter. Have been using this for about three years now. It's a solidly built (albeit lightweight) inverter that didn't cost a great deal but has held up very well over the long term. No blown fuses, and not a single reliability issue so far on several day trips and family vacations. The only drawbacks are that it gets very hot and there is an occasional high-pitched whine.
Excellent Product. The inverter is durable and well made. It stays fairly cool especially under extended use (long drives). It has enough power to supply many of the devices I or my friends and family use in the car (laptops etc). Worth every cent I paid and look forward to doing business with Tripplite again!.
Great product at a great price. I purchased this from a medical supplier to run my VPAP off a batter pack at a week long Boy Scout Camp, as well as using it for camping in general. It worked flawlessly in a tent for a week in heat and rain. It cost much less than a similar product bought by another adult at Radio Shack for his CPAP. The only slight negative is that I would agree with the other reviewer that the protruding fuse can be an annoyance.
Great performance and a compact design. We purchased the PowerVerter PV150 to use with our laptop on long road trips. It got its first workout on a Michigan to New York City trip in which it was in almost continuous use both ways. The PV150 performed flawlessly and was convenient to work around and store. The only disappointing feature is the safety fuse that sticks out from the case instead of being recessed into the case. We have not had a problem with it but it looks like it could be easily bumped and broken . Otherwise it is a great product and and I would recommend it to a friend.
Dr. it does what it says. fast blow fuse 20A automobile type with spade lugs condition is visible on outside of case and will protect the inverter and your equipment. AC outlet is grounded. Has lit on-off switch. No fan, cools via entire case as a finned heat sink. Would have preferred fuse was a resettable circuit breaker but fuses are cheap. Advise to carry an extra fuse if you are traveling
It's easier than ever for do-it-your-selfers to customize sound and security systems, so you don't have to rely on factory gear; aftermarket accessories improve driving enjoyment from vintage add-ons like speaker boxes for classic sports cars or specialty stands for satellite radios that include adjustable cup holders. The list with hundreds of products goes on and on as more niche players create more options for car audio, video and navigation.
