Much better then paying 100's of dollars for the same result.

It's a win win because you have a 30 day trial and a product to use at a very reasonable cost and it appears to be very well made so far.

It would be nice if there was a 5V setting- there are 4.5V and 6V settings, but no 5V.

This device properly delivers 12V DC power to my DC device. It would be nice if there was a 5V setting- there are 4.5V and 6V settings, but no 5V. Why is that? I've found that most of these DC adapters don't have 5V settings, yet most of the USB DC/cigarette adapters are 5V. What's up with that? Seriously, if you know, please leave a comment!

Pretty straight-forward... choose the right tip end, and correct polarity, and you're all set. My previous one had the power settings built into the cigarette lighter plug end, and this one has a box mid-line between the ends, so there's less weight and bulk at the lighter socket, which is better.

Parts Express 12V 2A DC To DC Converter is a hard item to find ,but now that I've found it, I can use it for all my needs in my car.
This item was recently received by me for a very reasonable price. I have not had a chance to fully try it out but, what little usage
I've done so far was very good. It ran all the items that I tried with ease.I so far have no complaints and love this item.I've been
looking for one of these for along time and now I can run items that I had sitting around due to bad connections with the original items.
The Parts Express 12V 2A DC To DC Converter saved me from having to throw these items away because of bad connections or connectors.
The Parts Express 12V 2A DC To DC Converter has replaced the original parts without problems and this makes me happy because I don't
have to pay a lot for an item replacement now. The cheapest place that I found this item was on Amazon and that makes me happy too.
I know Amazon will back this product during my trial period for st least 30 days if it doesn't work out the way I think it should but,
so far I am very happy with this product and Amazon.If you need this type of item it won't hurt to try it and see if you like it.It's a
win win because you have a 30 day trial and a product to use at a very reasonable cost and it appears to be very well made so far.Try, you'll
like it.

This converter is very efficient and flexible. I use it with 12-volt GelCell batteries and motorcycle batteries to provide completely isolated power supplies when I need clean power at a remote location. In particular, it is handy when running a small FM transmitter that is sensitive to noise in the DC supply line. One drawback for this supply is that, if the 12-volt input supply leads are reversed, there is no protection and an electrolytic capacitor that lies across these lines is easily blown. (very loud and smelly!) Since the unit is supplied with a connector that fits into a cigarette lighter socket, this is not really a problem. There are rare instances of older, positive ground automotive electrical systems, however, where this arrangement must be taken into account, so be careful. Also, if you modify the input to provide a different connector set for the input, take care to get the polarity right. All-in-all a very impressive unit with good current delivery to the output and a good set of output voltages (3, 4.5, 6, 7.5, 9, and 12 volts). The six adaptors provided with the unit offer a two-pin connector that allows for tip polarity changes by inserting in one direction or another. This seems to be a universal type of adapter and I have several that I have received with other power converters over the years. Good design!

I was looking everywhere for a simple, inexpensive way to power my home-made time lapse camera. After some research, this particular converter seemed like the best way to convert a the power from a car battery to power my Cannon EOS without dying or zapping the camera to death!

Much better then paying 100's of dollars for the same result. Worth the bargain

This is just what i was looking for it has the right voltage rating and runs at upto 2.0 amps,the other ones either had wrong amps or the wrong voltage so for the price and options this fit the bill but i just got this so i have not been able to use it yet.
