“ Manufacturer: Betterware / Type: Car Adaptor „
I was really dubious about this item before I bought it as I only paid 99p from EBay and I was not sure that it would work. It arrived and although it looks quite cheaply constructed it does the job jst fine. I spend a bit of time in my car and I use a sat nav, I often take advantage of the time to charge up my phone or play my ipod. I tend to have to work out which one I need to charge first as there is only one port. I saw a similar product in my friend's car and decided I would get hold of one for myself. I did not realise how cheap they were until I started googling them.
Price and availability
The cost of this interesting little piece of equipment is around £1.99 but you can pick it up for half of this on Ebay. The actual product is supplied by Betterware who are famous for selling helpful gadgets.
The device comes in plastic packaging and takes no time at all to remove and set up. The end of the device fits neatly into the cigarette lighter compartment and locks into place if you twist it slightly. It stays without falling out and to make sure you know it is correctly installed there is a little indicator light that glows red. The rest of the device is made from plastic and feels like it will break at anytime. It splits into two ports which now means that you can now have two items charging or using power.
I never use electronics while driving but it is so much better that I can have my sat nav connected up and charge my phone. I do not have take it in turns and can have them both charging at once which is really useful. The device is really reliable and despite its shbby construction, I have not encountered a single problem. My devices always charge up straight away without any issues. My only concern is that someone may use this product and blow the fuse by overloading it with power. You should only use compatible items and check that the maximum output does not exceed what you are using it with. I have never encountered a problem but I only use it for charging phones, ipods and my sat nav.
If you are looking for a device that will allow you to have two ports instead of one then I can highly recommend this one; it does exactly what it says on the tin for a very decent price.
