Dual port adapter
on 7 June 2012
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.
