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.
I selected the PowerDrive because of its positive reviews and slim profile. I actually already own a vehicle power inverter for use with my laptop, but it's such a monstrous thing, it takes up about 25% of the passenger side floor! The PowerDrive, on the other hand, is nice and slim - about the size of a regular household surge protector. It's got a 3 foot cable, which is more than enough to have it pretty much anywhere in the front of my vehicle. I love that it has a USB outlet, as well as another vehicle adapter outlet, available. I can now charge a wide range of items in my car without having to disturb my car's shabby lighter!
I didn't notice any sound at all coming from this unit. It seems to run very quietly. I would definitely buy one of these again and would recommend to people I know.
Update 06/07/2012: I have now purchased a second power inverter for my husband's car. Everyone who has seen the PowerDrive in my vehicle has been impressed. It is a great little piece of equipment - still going strong and working perfectly. I recommend it to anyone looking to expand on what they can charge/use in their vehicles.
