4.0 out of 5 stars Effective socket
This excellent value multi-socket has a red led which illuminates when live. I did not see that in the advert. You need to be cautious not to overload this socket as it is fused at 5amp, which with three devices connected could easily be exceeded. Essential to know that the fuse (in the plug) is 20mm long: it is NOT like a UK mains plug fuse. Amazon can supply this...

On the plus side, at least for once the plastic the product was made from was sturdier than the blister pack it came in! Those packs can be impossible!

1.0 out of 5 stars car charger, 13 Sep 2013
This review is from: SWT 3 Way Multi Socket Car Cigarette Lighter Splitter Usb Plug Charger DC 12V Triple Adapter + Usb Port (Electronics)
Worked perfectly well the 1st time i used it. Bought it partially for the USB charger. We do a lot of long journeys so perfect for the ipad, iphone ect. 2nd time i tried to use it the USB part just refused to work. This is the 2nd one we have had and the same problem. Won't be buying another!

You need to be cautious not to overload this socket as it is fused at 5amp, which with three devices connected could easily be exceeded. Essential to know that the fuse (in the plug) is 20mm long: it is NOT like a UK mains plug fuse. Amazon can supply this fuse and I would suggest get 10amp ones - but beware of overloading the cable
The other limitation is that there is no socket designed to take the cigarette lighter - the three sockets are for accessory use only.

3.0 out of 5 stars Non-descriptive description?, 3 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SWT 3 Way Multi Socket Car Cigarette Lighter Splitter Usb Plug Charger DC 12V Triple Adapter + Usb Port (Electronics)
Excepting that it's white in colour (photos indicate black, can't see any mention that it may be other than as shown) I can't argue - plug it in, it works just fine. Looks horrid in a predominantly black interior, but guess I'm lucky it didn't turn out pink ! Replaces a broken one bought elsewhere several years ago (wires tend to break over time where they exit the body) - the main selling point for me is the wires coming off at an angle from the plug - this means that I don't have them trailing across my gearlever.

Paid for it. Received it. Plugged it in. Tried to figure out why it didn't work. Chucked it out the window. Drove over it. Reversed over it. Left it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great little piece of kit., 15 May 2014

This review is from: SWT 3 Way Multi Socket Car Cigarette Lighter Splitter Usb Plug Charger DC 12V Triple Adapter + Usb Port (Electronics)
Great, but be warned it is easy to blow a fuse on this, something to do with the internal rating and the USB connection. However, I have had x3 gizmos working from it at the same time.
