I love these 12 volt power battery clip on adapters. The quality of these have been excellent. The wires are very solid and the barrel port is extremely durable. They can handle ( theoretically ) up to 10 amps, which at 12 volts is about 100 -120 watts. However I have never used them for so much power nor would I recommend anyone using them for such high levels of power. What they are excellent for is when you need a strong light and you can plug a 13 watt, 12 volt Bayco light into one of these and then just use the battery clamps to quick connect to any 12 volt deep cycle or Automobile battery, in just a few seconds. These are so convenient. When I am charging 4 105AH batteries in 1 battery bank I use these along with Innova's brand Voltage meter that plugs straight into these to check the "approximate" voltages across my batteries as they charge or are being discharged. And they work!!
The Bayco light I highly recommend is also available on Amazon;
These are small, fit easily into a glove compartment, and will run most low wattage ( I never go over 50 to 60 watts at 12 volts on these ) devices straight from any car, solar, or AGM battery that you have. If you need to charge your IPad even, you can combine one of these with a Bestek Brand 12 volt plug in little adapter, that has two USB ports, one at 2 Amps at 5 volts and one at 1 amp at 5 volts, and also has 2 more 12 volt Barrel type receptacles like these have.
Bear in mind that I now must have about a dozen of these, half of them at least 3 years old and all of them have seen plenty of use. Not one of them has ever failed, overheated, or had the slightest problem ever. And you cannot beat the price point on them. I highly recommend them.
The only complaints I have are that the cable is only 2 feet long, so with some longer wheelbase cars/trucks, it may struggle to reach the back tire on the opposite side of the battery. However with my vehicle listed above, it does not have a problem reaching the back tire on the opposite side of the battery but it was getting close to the end of it's reach with a little bit of slack left.
The only other complaint is the rubber insulated grips on the outside of the clips slip off somewhat easily from the clips themselves.
They are only minor complaints from me and have not hindered my experience personally but I could see how in some instances it might cause a problem. All in all I think this is a great product and should last quite some time for me. I would recommend this to most people looking at it!
The wire gauge was adequate and I noted no heating of the wires for the 15+ amps this pump draws.
I will say that plugging in a cigarette plug is quite hard.. you may think you're going to break something, but it does work.
The unit appears to be designed to be more or less permanently mounted as it has a "water cap" over the plug, but I'd certainly not use it for that purpose.
Some might desire longer wires. They are about 2 foot long, but I suppose no length is going to be "right" for everyone. It was adequate for me. A 12-foot extension set is available for those who might want LONG wiring RoadPro RP-203EC 12V 12' Extension Cord with Cigarette Lighter Plug
I would have given 5 star if they had heavier duty clamps
PS: I noted someone asked if you ran the engine or not.. it doesn't matter as the adapter has no idea if you are or not :) .. it carries the same amps either way unless you have a VERY LOW battery :D

I used these to wire my off-grid cabin with 12 volt outlets and they worked perfectly for this application.
