1.0 out of 5 stars Inaccurate Item Description. 8 May 2012

Currently considering whether to return this item or not.

The description of the item is INCORRECT. Specifically:

"Just plug the inverter into the vehicle's cigarette lighter or connect directly to a 12v battery to convert the voltage to mains AC power."

There is no connector to a cigarette lighter included.

I may still use this as I want 500W power and intend to mostly use it driectly off a battery. However, I wanted to option to do a "quick connect up maybe as I drive" as well. Thus this is a disappointment.
