Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Although I usually like the Amazon Basics range, this product certainly seems more cheaply produced and finished than other products we have purchased from the range. If you have an awkward to reach cigarette lighter socket, this would be a useful adapter as the range of movement means it can be set to a good range of angles. However in our car, the socket is close to the gear lever and this bulky adapter kept getting knocked when changing gear. Furthermore the weight of the adapter plus 2 plugs in it meant it kept tending to work loose from the socket and therefore losing contact. Our car socket is horizontal, a more vertical socket would probably work better. We have another product, a triple adapter with a single plug on a length of cable so the adapter itself can be positioned away from the gear lever. In our case this works much better, but really it depends on the layout of your vehicle.

This handy little device is ideal for these times where you have multiple devices that can be powered off the 12V socket in your car but only have one socket.

In our case we've had several occasions where our Satnav was plugged in and we thus couldn't charge our phones. This device doubles up your 12V socket so you can.

You simply plug it in, adjust the neck angle as you see fit and plug the devices in. It's simple and works well.

I have often found it annoying when my phone needs charging, but I need the Sat Nav, so it'd be a choice, get to my destination without getting lost, and have a dead phone, or charge the phone - No Sat Nav. Now I can have both :)

This does exactly what it is supposed to do. It sturdy and has a little hinge so you can position it as required. With today's Smartphone's able to do everything except 'hold a charge' - I find this a Godsend as I can use Sat Nav whilst charging the phone.

I didn't get a chance to test this product when I received as I had to go away. I used it today, in a nutshell, no device adapter worked. If you plug a sat nav, mp3 player, DAB, phone charger etc, all keep disconnecting and re connecting and you need to hold them down and keep pressing all the time.

If you have a SatNav and your phone goes flat, it's really inconvenient to unplug one and charge the other. This is where this innovative little product comes in handy.It's also good for long journeys for couples as well as children who need to plug their DSs or TVs. Works perfectly, recommended.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
The dual-port swivel cigarette lighter charger is something that had to come along around now. I doubt if I'm the only one who's had tense conversations with their significant other, and/or children, about whose phone takes priority for recharging, and of course with in-car DVD players or tablets, the problem will only get worse.

Well, this charger seems to fulfil all our needs. The swivel mechanism allows us to use it in the front or rear socket without having to bend any chargers to dodgy angles. The mechanism itself also seems pretty robust, too, and stays where it's put.

When two devices are charging, they both seem to charge at the same rate as if they were being charged on their own, so you don't lose out there either.

The only little note of caution is that while you can mitigate this to some extent by thinking about the best angle for the swivel, the chargers will unavoidably stick out further than if you were only charging one device. So, beware small children jumping into the back of the car and kicking the plugs out, or bumping them with your hand or elbow if you charge things in the front of the car.

Otherwise, a solid and worthy little device and worth the money.

I'm somewhat surprised that more motor manufacturers don't provide USB charging/power points in modern cars. I'm sure the time will come when the cigarette lighter type will be phased out in favour of the more practical and universal USB connector. Meanwhile most of us are stuck with a single cigarette lighter style socket in our car!

This neat little adaptor from AmazonBasics will allow you to use or charge a couple of devices simultaneously - handy if you need to use you phone and satnav together. A lot of electrical items designed for in-car use come with this type of power connector, although many come with a mini USB socket on the device itself. AmazonBasics also supply an inexpensive adaptor with cigarette lighter plug to USB sockets which could be a better option for powering some equipment in your car.

However, if you still need to use the old-style connectors then the neat little device will probably do the job OK - if your plugs are not too big to fit side by side! The Product Description and illustrations are very good and should give you an idea of the suitability for your needs. The frustration-free packaging is very welcome in this range of products.

There's a not a lot you can say about these kind of products really, is there? Firstly the packaging wasn't too difficult to get into which is always a bonus. I've forgotten the amount of times I've sliced by fingers on the edge of a blister pack or equally howled at the moon because I can't find a pair of scissors.

As it's a "Basic" item it's cheap and cheerful, but the only cheap thing about it is the price. It seems solidly built and I imagine it will last being pulled about in the car. It's handy for those times when you want to have use of your sat nav and something else, usually my son's 3DS!

The swivel head is useful, particularly in our car where the cigarette light point is in a slightly bizarre place.

Simple, cheap and effective.

A recent trip down through France revealed one large flaw in my car; too many gadgets and not enough power sockets. This inexpensive cigarette lighter splitter works well. It is long (6 inches) so stuck out too far when in the lighter socket in the front of the car but was fine in the back for the kids to use. It does have a small button that allows you to swivel the the adaptor but this is difficult to do when it is plugged in (mind your long fingernails!) All in all this is an inexpensive adaptor and one worth considering if this is what you need.

A simple gadget that allows two devices to be plugged into a car's cigarette lighter at the same time. I use it to allow me to use a Sat Nav and charge up my mobile phone at the same time. It looks quite big when it first arrives, but because it swivels through 90 degrees, it allows cables to be re-directed out of the way. Without it, the Sat Nav cable used to hang in the way and get caught around the gear stick. With it, the cables are directed to the passenger side, keeping clear of the gear stick.

It's supposed to have an LED to show when it's drawing current. Maybe it's hidden around the back because of the way I have it directed, but I've never noticed the thing. In my book, that's good - the less distracting lights in a car the better.

Simple, good value and effective. Recommended.
