Never had a problem. I've had this for more than 5 years, and it's never given me a problem. I've used it to power a mobile computer station that included a laptop, monitor, and a couple charging devices, as well as lots of other miscellaneous things while on the go. It just WORKS! It's high quality and quite durable.
Very nice unit, never had a problem with it. My PowerVerter¨ 375W Ultra-Compact Inverter with 2 Outlets is a quiet machine that allows one to charge various items such as mobile phones, IPADS, portable video or DVD players without having to worry about your truck or automobile battery going dead. I use the Tripplite inverter when I go camping and can't manage to fend off all of my friends and family vying to use it for their devices. Do be careful though as overuse (more than 4-5 hours of use with your vehicle not running) may render your automobile battery low or dead. It also comes in handy to charge various devices while you are on the road so you do not have to worry about putting too much load on your automobile battery.
FANTASTIC PRODUCT. This is one of the items we "can not leave home without." With two teenage daughters very active in sports with games across a wide area we MUST be able to keep our many cells phones charged to keep in touch. The PV375 handles the job outstandingly as we travel to and from practice/games. With multiple vehicles the "departure checklist" number one item is, Is the Inverter in the car? The PV375 has exceeded all our expectations.
Powerful little Inverter. This inverter has ample power for a 12V power socket connected version, so much so that I'd recommend a hard wired solution instead of the included 12V plug. The unit comes with a 40A fuse in the fuse plug, be warned you will burn up the fuse to your 12V socket before this fuse opens. I Bought an adapter to go from alligator clips to the 12V socket for high power use and portable use with just a battery. This unit was powerful enough to run a small electric weed eater, until the motor on the weed eater warmed up from continuous use and started drawing more power. When this happened the inverter would go in to a safety mode where it had to be switched off and then back on again to regain output, but no open fuse even from overloading it like this. My one complaint (and the reason for 4 instead of 5 stars) about the unit is the fan runs all the time instead of cycling with temperature. This would not be a problem except the small fan is noisy. Unit is much heavier duty with the aluminum case then the plastic cases on other units.
