Other compatible appliances include laptop computers, cell phones, MP3 players, digital cameras, portable games, power tools, etc. This product provides 400 watts peak surge power and loaded with safety features such as overload protection, auto-reset short circuit protection, and low battery shutdown.

Amazon.com

The Wagan EL2402-5 Smart AC Inverter is a 2.1-Amp USB power port that is compatible with iPad and other tablets, Kindle and other e-readers, smartphones, cell phones, MP3 players, digital cameras, and other USB appliances. It features two AC 120-volt outlets delivering 200 Watts of continuous power. Run and charge 110v electronics in your vehicle. It's safe to use thanks to high peak wattage (500W) for sensitive electronics, auto reset short circuit protection, overload protection and low battery shutdown, and built-in surge protection for car start up and shut down. It can even operate with the vehicle engine turned off.

Power enough to charge laptops and tablets such as iPad
Run Additional Electronics with More Powerful USB

The Wagan EL2402-5 Smart AC Inverter includes a more powerful 2.1-Amp USB port, making it an essential item for anyone who uses larger electronics on the go. This more powerful 2.1-Amp USB port makes it compatible with the iPad and other tablet computers, plus e-readers such as the Kindle. You can also charge electronics such as your laptop, cell phone, MP3 player, digital camera, portable game player, and more.

Simply plug this item into your vehicle's 12v outlet and plug in your appliances. It will allow you to run appliances with up to 200 watts in your vehicle. Another useful feature is the built-in overload protection and low battery shutdown. You can use this inverter even if your vehicle engine is turned off, plus it will shut down automatically to prevent total battery drain.

2.1-Amp USB Power

Wagan Tech designed this product especially for people who need to power their electronics while they’re on the go. This is the perfect item to provide stable charging power for power-hungry tablet devices on the market today.

Most USBs only provide 1.5 Amps of power. Fortunately Wagan's 2.1-Amp USB product is compatible with even more powerful products so you can charge the iPad and other tablets, plus e-readers, etc. Just plug the inverter into the vehicle’s 12V outlet, connect your electronics, and charge them while you are on the go so they can be ready to use when you reach your destination.

Two AC outlets for simultaneous charging
Safety Features

This inverter features auto reset short-circuit protection so it will automatically shut down when the unit is overloaded. It will also shut down when input power is low, to prevent total battery drain, to ensure that your vehicle will still work afterward.

Although this unit will still function while the vehicle is turned off, as a precaution, it is suggested that you remove the adapter from your vehicle’s 12v outlet when not in use. (Some vehicles still provide power to the socket even when the vehicle’s power is turned off.)

Warranty

Wagan offers a 1 year limited warranty for defective items only. Customers have 1 year from the date of purchase to submit their warranty claim to Wagan's customer service dept. if an item is defective. A valid proof of purchase is required to activate the warranty. Additional warranty details are listed on the insert card that is shipped with your purchase.

Style Name: 400 Watt Verified Purchase
I got this inverter to replace one we had -- a 175 watt one -- that wasn't powerful enough for my wife's new laptop. This one has plenty of umph to do the job, it's just a bit on the loud side. While it's on, the fan is too, and when on the floor of the passenger seat, it was about 60 dB -- about the volume of a normal conversation. You can definitely hear it over the road noise. There is a handy switch on the unit so you can leave it plugged in all the time and turn it off when not in use.

It comes with a cigarette lighter plug, as well as battery clamps. I believe you'll only be able to get the full 400 watts if you connect directly to the car battery, but we only need about 250 watts so the cigarette lighter plug works fine.

The USB ports have enough power to charge an iPad. My iPad showed "Charging" when plugged into the USB ports rather than the usual "Not Charging" when plugged into my old inverter that had USB ports

I'd recommend this but I'd want people to know that it's not whisper quiet like my old one.

This converter worked perfectly for me. My wife and I were making an 8-hour drive for the Thanksgiving holiday and wanted to have power for a 13" MacBook Pro and our iPhones. The inverter did exactly what you would expect - it charged our devices! It's pretty handy that this device has two plugs AND the USB port, and that's one of the reasons I picked it over some of the other similar models. However, be sure that if you use both plugs, the combined power requirements of the devices do not exceed 200 watts.

And that brings me to the next point. I specifically bought a less expensive, smaller model because 200 watts was more than adequate for our needs, so it didn't make sense to spend more for a 400W+ model that would likely be larger, louder and hotter than this one. The 13" MacBook Pro we have only uses 60 watts when charging, so this 200W charger was way more than necessary to do the job. If you have a big, power-hungry laptop or other device that you intend to charge with this, verify that your device is within the range supported by this converter or you will have problems.

I have no regrets about this purchase and would definitely recommend it to other folks who are considering it.

Two things you need to do when you get this inverter is

1. Test it
2. Register on wagan's website so you get a one year warranty (if you don't register within 30 days of buying the product, you will not be eligible for the warranty, which I failed to do)

I bought this inverter a couple of months ago and just got to test it. As soon as I plugged it in to my battery, I heard a pop, (I think I had the inverter in the on position when I plugged it into the battery so make sure it is off when connecting to power source) and the green light on the inverter would not come on. I tried it on my car battery too to make sure. I decided to open up the inverter. There are 2 screws on each side and the sides comes off but do not pull away as wires are connected. You can move the sides out of the way and slide the white protective covering off to see the circuit board. I took a look inside and nothing looked fried on the circuit board. I noticed that there was a 40amp fuse, so i pulled it out (with some needle nose pliers) and the fuse had blown. I just ordered Bussmann VP/ATC-40 40 Amp Fast Acting Blade Fuse, (Pack of 25) and will report back after I replaced the fuse and use the unit for awhile. I will say the electronics in side looks pretty good.

Besides the unit not working right away I like how small it is. I like that it has 2 USB ports and 2 regular outlets. I am building a solar power box for camping to recharge cell phones and such.

Update: The new fuse did the trick. The inverter is working again!

First the quirks: The unit will shut off automatically if you are either not using any power or are using really low power. I purchased it to use in the car for various things but when using it to charge AA or my DSLR batteries it will only do so for a short period of time before turning itself off and requiring me to flip the switch. Highly annoying and I will be replacing it for this reason (or selling/trading to someone).

Things I like: The size and design are appealing and its mostly metal so shouldn't heat up as much as some others. Like a few people have said it isn't as loud as some people think, more than tolerable.

I will be contacting the manufacturer to find out if the low or no power use is a design feature or a flaw with my unit. Will update this with a comment with what I find out.

I've had this inverter for a couple of weeks. The great thing about this model is that it does not make that annoying high-pitched alarm that most inverters make when they go into low battery condition. I use this inverter for non-automotive use and needed something that would simply shut down quietly when the battery gets down to 11 Volts or lower without giving off noisy alarms. In addition, this model has no moving parts: it does NOT have a fan and operates very whisper quiet. It still does not seem to get hot though this maybe because I operate it in a cooler climate outdoors. I have not used the USB port on it yet.

I have gone through several makes of inverters and been frustrated with erratic operations, noisy alarms and loud fans and I'm happy I finally found this one.

I would definitely recommend this model.

Update: Jan 15, 2012:
--------------------
I have to reduce my original 5-star rating to 3-stars. I got to test this under various conditions and no longer feel it meets my needs. As mentioned in my previous review, I don't use this inverter inside a Car with a starting type battery. Instead I use it with a non-car 12V 80 Amp-Hour deep cycle/marine battery. Deep-cycle batteries are designed to take more abuse by allowing the user to run the battery all the way down to 11 Volts (& sometimes as low as 10 Volts). However, this Wagan model goes into low-battery mode too soon at about 11.9 Volts. The specs on the actual packaging implies it can tolerate upto 8.5 Volts input. When I connected a 100 Watt incandescent light bulb to this inverter at a battery input voltage at 12.1 Volts, this inverter started cycling rapidly like "off-on-off-on-off-on..." every half second.
