Got this product yesterday and it works great. I've haven't had any issues getting coins in or out.

Here's some information no-one else, including the manufacturer, provides. These numbers are from my tests.

Pennies: 42 or $0.42
Nickels: 32 or $1.60
Dimes: 46 or $4.60
Quarters: 36 or $9.00

Total: $15.62

This one has a slot for pennies. Really not much more that needs to be said. I'm not a fan of pennies, but the annoying, nearly worthless little things are still legal currency, so I need a place to put them! Which is why it baffles me that every other coin holder out there omits the penny slot.

I do also like the cupholder design of this product (or you can mount it with the enclosed mounting tape, or toss it in your console storage). It's reasonably solid, has more capacity than similar products, and functions well. This is the coin holder you want.

Get the exact change you need in a hurry. It's Even fun for your kids to help you count out exactly what you need in your favorite fast food drive through. Also an easy way to remove all your change from the car by putting this in your trunk or taking it with you. You can also turn it upside down in the larger cup holders to keep the money out of site. It holds a lot of coins and works well. Dimes are small and a bit tricky, a full load and the return spring almost locks the dimes in the chamber. So when loading dimes keep checking every third one or so to make sure they come out easy.

This change holder holds change ok, but the whole point of a change holder like this is to be able to easy retrieve change when needed. At this task, this product is a failure because of the extremely weak springs used. The springs holding the coins in their respective slots are quite weak and so it can actually end up being extremely difficult to get coins out of this thing. You try to slide a quarter or a dime out, but end up just pushing the coin down into the opening. You'll fumble for many seconds trying to get coins out or may just give up.

Most modern car cup holders can hold a super-gulp sized cup, but this coin holder is the size of a small coffee cup. As such, it will certainly fit any cup holder, but it won't fit in it well and will shake and jostle around. In my 2013 Ford Escape, the lip of the coin holder is below the top of my cup holder. That's not really a show stopper, but does mean you have to remove it from the cup holder in order to easily add or remove change, etc. I put the coin holder in a koozie and that helped somewhat as far as making it fit better in my cup holders.

I bought two of these to go in my car and put to use several jars of coins that I accumulated over the last several years. While this holder is the best product that I tried there are several annoyances that prevent this from being a perfect solution.

PROS:

- Saves money. You break bills less and use what you do break more efficiently.

- Holds all 4 coin types. There are many holders that do not have a place for pennies. Why?!?!

- Has a small "footprint". It fits in a cup holder or other small compartment in your vehicle.

- Good design allows you to rotate the holder in one hand and flip out the desired coin with the other. The linear holders that drop coins out of the base tend to flick coins into your lap or force you to cup one hand under the holder to catch coins making operation cumbersome.

- Quiet. Holders that rely on gravity to keep the coins in their cylinders make a lot of noise when they are stowed in your vehicle and you are driving over poor road surfaces full of potholes, etc.

- Inexpensive compared to some fancy holders that exhibit the above problems this holder solves.

CONS:

- Coins are at times difficult to remove from their respective cylinders. This is the case mostly for pennies and dimes. When they stick the force you apply to slide out a coin pushes the coin down, not out. They could have added a hole in the center of the cap that leaves the inside edge of the top coins exposed - if one gets stuck you can put your finger in the center and extract it easily.

- Capacity. Yes it holds about $10-$12 of coins which is not bad, but the holder is quite short and could have been another 50% taller to hold more coins and still not be too tall.

- No way to tell if you are getting low on a particular type of coin. I've been caught in a drive-thru a few times counting out, say, 34 cents only to run out of pennies at 32 cents. I actually corrected this by drilling a porthole on the side of each coin cylinder so I can see when I'm getting low and I need to go hit the jar of coins on the nightstand again.

Ok, ok, so its just a coin holder. If you get this one you won't go wrong. If you have access to a drill press you can make it a five-star product. ;)

I purchased a new Toyota Avalon and to my dismay learned there is nowhere to store change. This is the answer!...fits in the cup holder and is easily moved to the glove box when storage is required.

I highly recommend this great little purchase!

I use this product in my mini-van. It holds lots of spare change and fits nicely in the cup holder. The only problem that I have found is if I place it in the holder of my driver's door, some of the change will pop out when you shut the door. It works best in a cup holder in a console. I think it is a great product.

My new car had no place to put change. I get annoyed with an over abundance of change. This thing is great. I some times take it into the gas station or take-out restaurant so I can pay with exact change. I always get compliments from the cashiers. Am I a dork? Maybe.

Only complaint - sometimes it is hard to pull out coins - they want to push down like you are inserting another when you are really trying to pull one out. Not a huge deal.

As other reviewers have stated, it's very difficult to remove the coins. Once in a while the dispenser will allow for 1 or 2 coins to be removed, but then the rest of the coins are lodged inside of the "cylinder". Usually it takes some HARD rapping of the coin holder in the palm of your hand to dislodge the remaining coins, and then they just fall out on the floor. I never was able to use it in my car. I do NOT recommend this item.
