No, I walked out the of the store threw away the packaging (didn't need extra packaging littering the car) got in the car and drove away. We plugged it into the rear 12V accessory port of the car and plugged in my daughters iPod. A little while latter my daughter says her iPod died so I plugged it in the front 12V accessory port and noticed a short dimming of the dash lights. The thing wouldn't charge anything.
Turns out the thing blew the fuses in both the front and rear accessory recepticals. I should have known better than to plug it into the 2nd receptical, but I had just bought it and I was sure Duracell wouldn't make such a piece of junk that would blow fuses when plugged in.
Anyways, when I got back home, I tested it with a multimeter and sure enough the thing shorts out whenever you push the outer contacts in a slight amount (Same as it would when installed in the car).
I have sent an email to Proctor & Gamble. They replied with this:
"I'm sorry for the experience you've had with your charger. Unfortunately, all Duracell car chargers are licensed and sold to Battery Biz. Please contact Battery Biz at 1-800-842-2127 for further assistance."
I don't have the luxury of sitting and waiting for some 800 number to eventually deny my request for a new charger or a refund since "Battery Biz" has no website or email that I can find.
In the end I would not even recommend this product as a paper weight, its not very heavy.
If someone has the wrong fuses in their car, this is going to cause a car fire - should be taken off the market.
Car 2: '06 Saturn ION: Didn't work. Two hours of troubleshooting and fuse-picking later, it looks like it somehow permanently disabled the rear power outlet
Meanwhile: Went shopping for chargers, saw this on shelf, read reviews here, decided against it. Did not notice that I actually already owned one. Made gods of irony smile.
Car 3: '02 Dodge Caravan: Plugged charger in, radio turned off. Blew 20A radio/accessory fuse
Finally: Put two and two together. Realised that we'd been plugging in this thing every time someone needed a spare charger
Draw your own conclusions. Mine is that this object is a class-action-worthy piece of crap.

Follow the guidance of all of the above reviews. A Serious piece of junk. This blew the fuse as soon as it was inserted in all of my charging ports. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Michael Deptula
I hate it, don't buy it, The charger broke within a week. I think you can find something similar and cheaper else where.Published on October 25, 2013 by J Oak
Despite the slightly misleading photo on this Amazon page, the product does not come with cables. I purchased this Duracell charger to replace a Griffin USB charger that drifted... Read morePublished on October 3, 2013 by John K.
Same experience as others. Worked ok for a week or so then kept blowing fuses.
Duracell should be ashamed to have their name on it.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! I bought this mini USB cellphone car charger for my car just about 6 months ago. I assumed that since it was Duracell it would be worth my money. Read morePublished on May 16, 2013 by Bob L
