It works but the swivel arm does not hold the position and the fan is noisy. Unless you need a 110V power source, just buy the USB model. The AC power will require the fan to operate. I keep it because it is compact and used it only when it is needed. You may need a couple in your car, so just buy another one.
I was excited by it, and it does work as it promises.But the fan noise is a drawback. I guess it should have a fan like in laptops which does not make much noise. Its a good value for money and everyone needs to have one especially if travelling with family, especially for laptop charging.
It converts the 12v DC power to 120v AC, but it has a very loud and annoying fan which you can hear even if your CD Player on. And for me USB port doesn't work unable to charge iphone and other devices I have. First of all there is not much space between USB and DC ports if you plug in your laptop charger then no space for any USB device.
This came with a USB plug in addition to the standard outlet, which is better than I expected. It definitely has a buzz to it though, and also interferes badly with the radio. But still good for when you need to charge on the go and didn't have to spend so much on a car charger.
