I purchased this in order to use my laptop in my vehicle when on the road or out camping. But, beware that it is not a simple plug-and-go inverter. The wiring must be attached to the post seen in the picture and then attached directly to the vehicle battery, or plugged into a 12v receptacle. It is also large. Not something that will easily fit in the glove compartment. But, it cranks out higher wattage than a smaller unit, just beware the trade-off.

I wanted an inverter that had a digital readout so I could monitor the drain on the battery when the car was off and I was using my laptop.

this product fulfills that need with a compact design as a plus.

I am not happy with this power inverter. The only reason I chose this over other power inverters was because it had the digital display for monitoring the power output (which I thought would be really useful so I could monitor the power output and not overload the cigarette receptacles in the car). In short, the power output display doesn't work properly after trying it with several devices and testing the power inverter in two different cars. The power output sometimes shows 40 watts when nothing is plugged in! It will also display 40, 50, or 60 watts for devices I know don't use that much power (e.g. phone charger). Other times it will show 0 watts for devices that I know use 20-30 watts. Also, the only output values it shows are in 10 watt increments which is really disappointing as well...nothing like you would see on a real watt meter. I exchanged mine for a different unit thinking it was just defective, but even the replacement showed the same behaviour...it is just a crappy product. In fact, it is just a re-branded power inverter from a Chinese company called Xantrex. Even the warranty is provided by Xantrex, not Duracell. I don't suggest buying this product.

In summary, the power inverter may work fine but the non-working power output display doesn't warrant spending the extra money over other power inverters. I will be returning this unit. I wish I knew of another consumer-level power inverter with a digital display since I would really like that feature...does anyone know of one besides the Duracell/Xantrex brand?

This inverter was a well thought buy, needed a power source to keep my laptop running, camera and mobile batteries charged during my trips. Duracell has designed this product well. I have used it many times and its usefulness has returned the value of purchase. Just one point which irritates is the fan, it is loud! Its a Handy tool to have in the car.

Good Product, Great Experience. Highly recommended.

Btw - I use this in India!

I was glad I had this when the electricity went out to run a small appliance. I had to run the car while I ran the appliance, but it was very useful. The appliance I was running had specs of: 115V 60hz 1.3A... which I calculate to be equivalent to approx. 150 Watts.

I bought this Power Inverter from Amazon back in February 2012 because of its apparent advantage over regular hard-wired-switch inverters, with its digital display to be able to monitor input voltage, wattage load and such, and because I trusted the Duracell brand...however either one of these apparent advantages was misguided, since the true manufacturer of this power inverter is actually Xantrex, not Duracell, they merely put a little piece of plastic that covers the power button and a 3 8-Segment display that happens to bear the name "Duracell" on it. If you want to see the resemblance, I advise you to go to Xantrex' homepage and browse for the Xpower inverters

All the things that I thought weighed this item more favorable over the other ones turned out that they weren't that important: It really isn't that important to be able to read the input voltage into the unit, since most units out there that aren't digital will still monitor input voltage but will warn you of low voltage with a beep, which this unit does as well. You really can't monitor output wattage all that well since the sensitivity is done in my experience in ranges from 0-60-80 (I never really loaded more than 100W on the unit): Anything less than 60W would display as 0 Watts on the display.

The aesthetic/finish quality of the device is questionable since the ONLY button that one can press on the unit apparently was covered with some cheap plastic that dried out quickly and dented in, leaving me with a more pronounced clicking noise every time I tapped the button, so I chose to trim the circumference of the piece of plastic that covered the button with a pair of scissors and get rid of the piece.

I bought this to recharge my cell phone, camera battery, etc for a camping trip where we wouldn't have access to electricity. The outlets are too close together to plug in the cell phone & battery charger so I had to buy a set of pigtail cords. Duracell should have foreseen the need for this & designed their inverter to accomodate the larger plugs. Otherwise, it worked well to recharge my devices.
