Sorry for those like me who think this will be a solution to car charger for every item, it's not. As the other reviews state, it is limited to 5watts, and admits it will not work with many IPODS. Well, I have my Gigabeat, and it won't work for it either. The guy that used it for his laptop must be the luckiest man alive, because I don't think this thing could light penlight. Save the money, get something better. To good to be true. Red light comes on, nobody is home

You read that right, this is pretty much a completely useless item. I should have read better. My fault but trying to keep you from making the same mistake! Money better spent elsewhere. Not good for just about anything except maybe a cell phone? (and not even sure there) If it was not so cheap I would return it.

I plugged this adapter into my car. The red light came on implying it had current. But, when I plugged in my portable tape recorder, it did not work. It also did not work for my cell phone AC charger.
Another caution: I could not fit it in the outlet in my dash because it was too wide. Fortunately, I have a 2nd DC outlet. It fit there but as I said, it did not work. It was so inexpensive I did not bother returning the product.

I missed this limitation in the Product Description. It was not in the Tech Spects or Product Details and the only review stated it worked for a laptop and a nintendo. This will work, maybe, for a cell phone.

This Eforcity Universal DC to AC Car Adapter [US Plug]
Eforcity Universal DC to AC Car Adapter [US Plug]
product has somewhat misleadign technical description.

The product name "Universal DC to AC Car Adapter" would indicate that the output of this device would be standard USA mains AC (or pretty close to it) that would work with different small appliances.

The truth is that the output from this device is not AC power at all!
This device outputs DC instead of AC. So term "Universal DC to AC Car Adapter" is pretty misleading. The product itself even lists that the output is 110-220V DC. And I have verified with multimeter that the output is really around 150V DC when no load is connected, not AC.

This kind of DC output would possibly work with some (maybe not all) low power switch mode power supply based chargers etc.. But this device will NOT work with any charger or other equipment that uses a traditional mains transformer in their power supply.

Other things missing on the equipment and specifications is that there is no information what is the power rating of this device, so you don't know how big load can be connected to this device safely without overloading it.

So the description "Universal DC to AC Car Adapter" is misleading.
This device is a low power car DC to DC converter that generates DC that might work with some normally mains powered equipment, but but will for sure fail on most equipment! (maybe even damage equipment).

The only good this on this converter is that it is very cheap (6.95). Considerable cheaper than any other similar looking device.

My biggest complaint is that the unit is so large, it leaves very little space for my plug given the placement of the outlet in my vehicle. I think part of that is my car manufacturer but it would be nice if it had some kind of pivot so it would fit in different situations. It also has a USB outlet which isn't shown in this picture. I was kind of stoked when I first opened it but found that it doesn't work anyway so... I can see why they removed it from the product image. It doesn't charge my iPod or my phone very quickly and I have an hour-long commute so if it was going to, it would. It has helped keep my stuff from totally dying on several occasions and for that I am very happy. Pleased with the purchase, just a few things I would change in order to make it perfect for my needs.

When plugged into the AC adapter in my car, not only does this NOT charge things or work properly at all, but it inexplicably turns on my windshield wipers. Nones-the-cool, bros. Nones-the-cool.

Used this to power a lamp in my house once during a brief power outage. I was surprised. I have already recommended this to several friends and family members.
