Using it at home, and on a 3,000 mile roadtrip. Cords long enough to reach even in a large-ish size minivan. Plug into my MacBook Air working fine so far.

Update 26 Jun 2013: Plug into the MacBook Air quit working since 3-4 months ago, no light, no charging going on. At first had to sort of force the plug into the receptacle, but after awhile that seemed to require too much force (afraid of physically damaging the MacBook).

Putting in a claim against their "lifetime" warranty, will update on how they handled my claim.

Further follow-up, 13 Sep 2013: vendor never did reply to my e-mailed request to contact me. Meanwhile, my MacBook Air started to have problems charging even with the Apple-supplied charger. Apple Store found that 1 of the contact pins in the MacBook Air was burned out, they had to replace the whole MagSafe board (the power connector). I looked at this adapter afterwards, found it had 2 pins burned out (even worse than on the MacBook); so my guess is that the poor quality of the connector made it burn not only itself, but also damaged my computer. Hope my experience will help you make an informed decision ...

I forgot to bring my AC power supply on a recent last minute trip. I decided to use 1-day shipping to get a power supply sent to my father-in-law on Saturday (only $3.99, w Amazon Prime) and was reluctant to spend the money for an Apple AC power supply for a day of use and the cheaper third-party AC power supplies had fairly poor ratings. I decided to try this 12V unit to charge the computer on this trip and as something that would be useful in the future.

The unit was at my father-in-law's when we arrived on Saturday. I charged the computer, a 15" Macbook Pro, in the driveway, starting the car every now and then to be sure the battery didn't discharge too much. I also charged it on some short trips in town. This brought the charge from under 20% to around 90%, IIRC, enough for me to use the computer that evening. The next day we headed home. I let my wife drive while I worked on a local copy of a web site that I just took over. Starting at ~30%, the computer was fully charged in 4-5 hours. It stayed charged for the rest of a 10 hour trip.

I have a 12V power supply for a Powerbook G4, with a pre-MagSafe connector, and the Westronics unit is much nicer. It smaller, cooler, has thinner cables, and the green/amber indicator works on the connector, just like a standard power supply.

I had no problems at all and the unit stayed cool. It's not something I'll use often, but it's nice to have it around.

Update (5/2/2011):
We were without power for a little over 4 days after the recent tornadoes, and I used the adapter to keep the laptop and cell phone charged. Eventually I ran a line into the house so I didn't have to leave the computer in the car. I used a heavy duty 3-prong extension cord. It was drawing 1.55 to 2.

Let me first state that I don't quite understand why I would need a converter/inverter to make my DC powered Laptop run via my DC wired Car. LOL ( Comment is in jest and rhetorical)

First week's review. (I will try to update at the 1month, 6month, and 1year.)

There are a few solutions out on the market and you can find them via searches outside Amazon. I decided to be the guinea pig on this one because competing solutions seemed complicated, were priced out of my range, and there were no reviews to read for this product. For less than 30 bucks (on sale at time of review and buy), I was willing to risk the possibility of the in-car charger not working properly. I quite surprise that there has not been such a product already.

Let's first note that this unit is not from Apple.

The build quality is up to snuff. A fuse is located in the 12v plug end. Total length of the device is adequate considering you are in the car. Should be enough reach if you are the rear passenger and need power from an outlet at the front of the cab. Though the brick portion would make you think of bulk, the weight of unit is pleasantly very low, I might dare say much less than the AC power adapter from Apple that comes with a MacBook. For the business traveler, this low weight means your main contention is how to pack the unit. My MacBook 2,1 only requires 60W which it give just fine (product description shows 60w/85w interchangeable).

Possible cons: ( for which time will tell)
I wouldn't say the plastic is cheap but it has that feel regarding the 12v end. I really don't have any other major complaints. Some might say it doesn't have the Apple design look but hey, it seems to do the job and I'm sure improvements will come down the line.

I bought this for a long road trip to keep our Macbook Pro charged and playing Disney/Pixar vids for the kids the whole 1700 miles.
Works well, no issues at all.

This product DOES put out enough wattage to CHARGE the battery (some others on Amazon only maintain your current charge level).

Keep checking that the light is lit on the box and on the tip that connects to the Macbook (and keep checking your youngest son hasn't kicked it out :)
