This splitter is HEAVY and bulky. But if located correctly, these are advantages. I was using all 4 outlets with multiple swaps going on all day by people from different angles in the van, and there was never a problem with intermitant contact or loose contacts. I attribute that to the heavy casing and the heavy outlets. The only caution are the two tabs used to attach the splitter. They appear to be undersized if the splitter is hung. I used both the provided double-sided tape and the tabs to hang my splitter - it is quite stable.

I received this item fast and I installed it in about 5 minutes. It came with double sticky tape and 4 screws so you can choose which method is best for you. I chose the screws because I wanted a more secure installation. I drilled the holes and mounted the bracket and the unit attached easily. I plugged it in and hooked up my key fob charger, phone charger and radio transmitter and had all 3 operating without a hitch. The unit is sturdy and mounted with the screws I had no problems plugging and unplugging my devices. The only thing I can complain about is that the item I received was not the same as the picture so they must have substituted. I have no problem with that as the substitution in my opinion is better looking and it works awesome. I would buy another if I owned another vehicle. I recommend this to everyone.
I uploaded 4 pictures also so you can see the unit installed.

Not much to it. But still, it does what it supposed to do, and and is solid.

Comes with screws and a mount for the dash, and double sided tape so you can mount the way you prefer. 4 outlets, one with the "spring" bit that works with your cig lighter. The maybe 3' cord leading to the device is nice, and makes it flexible for mounting.

This is a nice 4 outlet cigarette lighter plug, but I did not see in the description that the power is limited to 10A. Normal is 15A.

This product was pretty good for what it was. It's positives is that there are four sockets to charge

but the negatives is that the sockets are really narrow so if your plug is wide then you will most likely have to leave a slot unoccupied simply because the sockets are so close together.

Another con for a compact car is the cord is pretty long.

And the final and major con is it worked well for the first 9 months but died just last week. It is very disappointing as I paid more in hopes this would last a while. I will be contacting the company

Hello Eric,

We do see according to our records, this item was replaced for you at Wagan Tech under warranty, just at the end of July 2012. We know some time has passed, but we were curious if your replacement is still operating to your satisfaction.

Thanks - -Wagan Team 800-231-5806

Cord is as specified @ 34"
Cord is all black unlike picture (its a newer model than pictured)
Cord is 18 gauge wire
Safegaurded by a 10 amp fuse
All 4 sockets are usable for any device and all 4 sockets can be used at the same time as long as the total amperage pulled by those 4 devices is a total of 10 amp's or less.

Mounting screws are very short, so I used some longer screws; I didn't try to use the doubled sided tape.

I installed the unit under the passenger dash on my bass boat and ran wires from the battery to a female adapter to the front where it connected to the male adapter.

Unit Works greats great

For the price it is a great deal.

The cigar lighter socket in my car (2001 Audi TT) is in an awkward place (I have to open up the ash tray which looks bad and gets in the way of things), and to make things worse it's a very shallow socket that doesn't do a terribly good job of securely holding most connectors. Basically my car seems to have come with the worst possible cigar lighter socket I could imagine. It's as if the designer didn't know you could plug accessories into a cigar socket. Duh!

So I decided to buy a product like this and hardwire it into the electrical system, then just not use the original cigar socket anymore. Except for the cable length, this thing is pretty much perfect. The box is no bigger than it needs to be, and the cable length is probably fine if you're just going to plug it into your existing cigar socket. It would probably also be fine if I took the dashboard apart and wired it directly to the bus bar, but I wanted to run a wire from a fuse tap like this one in the fuse box to make installation much easier.

So I cut the cigar connector off of the cable and used some bullet plug crimp connectors like these to extend it with some additional wire. This worked nicely and I can now unplug it from the electrical system (if needed) up closer to the unit without even having to open the fuse box. I ran the wire to the fuse box, tapped the cigar lighter's fuse socket with the tap (which doesn't disconnect the original cigar lighter), and put in a 10A fuse (same rating as the one in the connector I cut off). Wallah!

I bought a couple of these for the back outlets of my Suburban to handle all the gizmos and gadgets the kids would need to keep them entertained on a looooooong trip. The quality of the unit is great, as is the usefulness. I don't know exactly how much capacity I have before I blow a fuse, but, the device is great, so far. The cord allows us to use the far back (luggage area) plug, while keeping the 4 outlets closer to the kids in the far rear seat. So... DVD players, iTouches, video games, phone chargers, electric inverter, and lots more can be all used at the same time, allowing for a peaceful long family car trip. :)
