As part of my job, I often have to drive a truck. That being said the cord is long enough to either set the strip on the dash, or the floor. I have never had a problem with heat, fan noise, or power draw. It is also pretty heavy duty, especially considering it doesn't weigh very much at all. The strip has 4 screw slides on the back for more permanent mounting.
My only complaint (Other than not having more outlets, which just isn't practical running off of a car power port), is that the L.E.D. indicating that it is turned on could be brighter.
This item is awesome for long trips, or for when you have to wait in the truck for a long period. I would say this item is a must for truck drivers, long trips with kids, or those people with tons of gadgets. 5 out of 5, I would not hesitate to buy another one.
The fan is noisy, but so are most all inverters of this sort. Plugging it in is a little finicky to get a connection - it could be my car's receptacle. The power light is dim; tough to see on sunny days.
I use this to power either of my two power-hungry laptops. It has never flinched nor got very warm. This item seems more durable than average. It has a heavy gauge power cord that is about 2.5 to 3 feet in length. The power light is dim; doesn't light up the car at night. The 12volt receptacle is nice.
The long shape may not work for everybody. I leave it in my car's jockybox, and it barely fits. I bought mine from Town Pump (gas station) for a higher price than Amazon's.
This unit produces a modified square wave to approximate a sine wave and product literature claims this is sufficient to power "most" laptops and electronic devices safely (some electronics are very sensitive to wave form). I will be using the PowerDrive to power a recently purchased Dell Vostro laptop. My expectation is that this advertised to run electronic devices safely so I'd be surprised if it didn't.
We have not been leaving this in the car, as we have two cars and switch between, so I'm not sure how well it would last sitting in a car for long periods of time. We've taken this on a few long trips and many short trips. It charges my phone close to as fast as a normal wall AC plug. For its price point, we didn't expect too much from it (especially compared to some others at our local retail store that were 2-3 times the price), but it has performed rather well.
As for how we use it, I would consider our usage somewhat heavy when it is being used, and then not at all for decent periods of time (we only use it when we forget to charge our phones, for long trips, or when my husband brings his laptop to keep up on work or something).
I would recommend this, it seems to not be of the best quality, but is more than good enough for most uses.
