Please note that a car 12Vs socket is able to supply many more amps than the 0.45A this unit can supply.

Unfortunately being the impatient Amazon buyer I am, I bought it as soon as I saw it, not considering anything to do with power limits. Plugging into my xenon car lamp saw it break in under 5 seconds, and that was that.

Please also note that the build quality of the item itself is pretty shoddy, but I guess you're only spending a few pounds!

Fine for small gadgets like Sat Navs and flashlight chargers - but you need to spend more money if you have something bigger to power.

A sticker on the box warns that this device is suitable for mobile phone and sat nav charging only. However, I bought it to recharge small flashers for roadside emergencies; the adaptor worked fine without overheating. I'd suggest (with caution) that it is probable suitable for all charging functions, but not operating devices with higher levels of power consumption i.e. tyre compressor pumps, etc.

This is the second of these that I have bought. Both grossly overheated, emitted smoke and appeared to be on the brink of catching fire when plugged into standard loads - recharging a Sat Nav in one case, and a mobile phone in the other. There is a reason why they are cheap...

I bought one of these to keep my iPod Touch topped up. The first time it was used it short circuited and tripped my fuse box. The smell alone told me it had melted a few components, so I cannot recommend this at all. I have tried contacting the suppliers but Amazon tell me their mail is down.

Tanco Impex Car Charger to Main Charger Converter Adapter AC DC UK works well until you plug somthing like a tyre inflater in it but to be fare it could have been the tyre inflater that was at fault as it smoked when plugged in the car afterwards. I would think about getting another and check everything before i plug them it to it next time.

This product was recommended at checkout, to use with the 12V tyre pump I was purchasing. Unfortunately it did not work with the pump I was buying. I have returned it to the manufacturer for a full refund.
