Great once the terminals were reversed
on 10 January 2014
I may be missing something here, but as the black wire is negative/ground and therefore needs to be attached to the chassis of my car, it should be the one with the screw-compatible terminal, but that terminal was on the red wire. Equally, the red wire should have had the spade terminal to click neatly into my fuse box, but this was on the black wire. I don't know if this was a manufacturing error on my specific item, or they are all like this, but it was an unexpected chore to cut off both terminals and correct the issue. However, once I did that, everything hooked up very well.
Another niggle is that the wires are extremely short, maybe four inches (?), so although it's not a deal-breaker, be warned.
Other than my small complaint about the wires, I am very happy with the product. It seems to be well-made and once the in-built bracket was screwed into the car (with the screws provided) it was mounted very solidly and has no play at all. The item works as intended and I cannot see any problems with it. Considering the price as well, this is really pleasing.
I would take "waterproof" with a pinch of salt, however, as I'd be more than suprised if it continued to work whilst being dunked under water! Perhaps read "splash-proof", which is just fine as who has that much water in their vehicle anyway?
