Product Description

Product Description

150W DC/AC MOBILE PWR INVERTER CUP MOUNT LIFETIME WTY

From the Manufacturer

The CyberPower CPS150CHI Mobile Power Inverter converts 12V DC automobile power to standard 120V AC home power--up to 150 Watts. Simply plug the inverter into a 12V DC outlet (cigarette lighter outlet) and you're ready to go. It's the perfect solution for powering electronics anywhere a 12V power source is available. It also has full-time surge protection that guards against power fluctuations from vehicle startup and shutdown. The CPS150CHI is ergonomically designed to fit in any standard sized cup holder for convenient placement, but also lays flat for dashboard or seat mounting. The 36" tangle-free cord is equipped with a 2-in-1 auto/airline connector, so you can power your electronics on the road, in the air, or on your boat. It not only has a standard 3-prong home outlet, but comes with a "pass-through" 12V DC cigarette lighter port so you can utilize the 120V AC home power and 12V DC cigarette power at the same time. It's the perfect device to power all your mobile consumer electronics, small appliances, emergency equipment, and portable tools.

I've owned this device for over a year and it's great. Use it for laptops and cell phone chargers with no problems. Stays much cooler than our previous inverter.

Update 6/2009: Bummer. It burned up. Plugged it in one day and within seconds smoke was pouring out. Had to throw it out of the car and let it cool off before sending it to the electronics recycler. Scary. Amazon won't let me change the rating, but generally I would give burning electronic devices no more than one star.

One of the attractions of this item is that it has two inputs: a regular mains AC socket and a cigarette lighter socket. In essence, this means you can power two things at once. That's a frequent requirement in my car so this item appeared ideal...or so I thought.

There are a couple of issues with it. First, as others have noted, it does seem to shut off quite quickly when you're powering a laptop. In my case, it could be anything from 30 seconds to 3 minutes. The second flaw is that the cigarette lighter socket on this device is about 2 inches (5cm) long. Some devices have shorter adapters than others and the shorter ones won't fit into the socket on this device because the adapter can't reach the contacts in the socket.

So, for example, this kind of item will work just fine:
Motorola Vehicle Power Adapter P510 - Original (OEM) 89144 / SPN5401 for Motorola Razr V3, V3a, V3c, V3i, V3m, V3t, V3r, V3xx, Q, W315, RIZR Z3, KRZR K1, KRZR K1M, W385, MOTOROKR Z6m (Retail Package)

This kind of item will probably not work with it:
BlackBerry 12V/24V Automotive Charger

Finally, it's described as having a "Cup-Mount". All this means in reality is that it's narrow enough to fit into a cup holder. If you want an item that is actually designed for a cup holder, take a look at this:

My wife and I are planning a road trip this summer and wanted a way to charge camera batteries, cell phones and operate a laptop computer. The reviews indicated the CyberPower AC Power Converter was a good unit to purchase. We purchased the device and have since run several road test, 2 of which it powered an IBM laptop(with GPS software)for 5-7 hours. It worked GREAT! It ran cool and kept the battery in the laptop at full charge for the duration of the trips. We are very happy with this purchase.

After buying product at Best Buy for $70, I came home and looked it up on Amazon.com where sure enough I found it for much less! I took back the one to Best Buy and got mine from Amazon in just a couple of days. I bought this primarily to use in our car for powering our Gateway & Toshiba laptops on road trips. As opposed to some power adapters which have various tips for various brands of computers, this is great in that if offers the versatility of being able to plug other AC items as well. A little large and the cords are a bit short, but I didn't think is was annoyingly loud.

A lot to like about this product - shape, weight, dual purpose plug ... just don't buy it to use in a car with a Toshiba 17" screen laptop. The laptop is spec'd to require 120w (15V-8A), but this inverter will not even charge it with the lid closed. Right, I plugged into our SUV lighter socket & the on light lit. Plug in unopened laptop, heard screech & watched it go off.

Darn, it's a pain to return things ... even though Amazon is by far the best I have dealt with for returns!

I used it primarily for my handheld apple devices. Rarely for a laptop. The thing broke down quite soon after the purchase, and was relatively loud. I have another converter that i really like by Duracell - flat, black little thing with a turn on blue button. Really nice.

I own this model and I love it, after I had a baby my husband and I drove across country, had a bad surgery experience during delivery and needed a heating pad, luckily my husband owned this and I was able to plug my heating pad to use. I also was able to plug in my camera to charge it to take some beautiful pictures during our drive. I only use this when needed for example trips. Highly recommend this product.
