4 ports are better than 1May 19, 2008
By D. Dodson
First, I want to clarify from the other review that said this only had 3 usable ports and 1 for the cigarette lighter only. This didn't make sense to me because a normal cig. lighter is typically used for other DC items. The fact is, there is one marked for a cig. lighter, and the other 3 cannot. But all 4 can be used for any electronics. There are 4 12V-DC power sockets.
Second, the size is not that bad for having 4 ports. I ordered the 3-port and 4-port and they're both the same size.
I've been using this with a GPS, Sirius radio, and phone charger with no problems. I'm sure I'll be able to add more items as well.
After using this for over a year, I have no problems and am glad to have the extra ports. Many times I've used all four ports plus an additional one in my vehicle. I have it sitting loosely in a van and it takes a beating well. Every once in awhile I have to wiggle one of the cables, or pull it out and plug it back in, but it works! I'm definitely happy with this.

The ONLY solution for those who have many/high powered electronicsDec 28, 2007
I have gone through 4 different cigarette adapter splitters, only to fin that all of them blew the fuses in my car after trying to put a 3rd electronic in. i bought two of these (i have to outlets) and it works great. In the 1st one I have my xm, gps, and a set of neon lights connected. the second has 1 set of neon lights, 1 set of led lights, and a dvd player hooked up. They work great.
-only one ive found not to blow fuses constantly
-comes with mounting tape/ screws and plastic pad
-Its really big and kind of awkward
-the safety caps are annoying (i just cut them off so its fine)
but the trade off is more than worth the convenience of this thing

Really holds four adapters and they don't fall out!Aug 31, 2008
We already had a power port similiar to this (with only two sockets) but it did not hold the adapters in tightly. They would constantly come unplugged and we would lose power to the portable DVD players and have to go all through the menu again and scene selections. This one is great! It tightly held the adapters and we have had no power loss problems.

Very poor qualityNov 16, 2009
By J. A. Graves
I purchased this product in September 2008 for use during the long car trips we take (only twice per year). It has always had some problems staying in my car's 12v socket. When plugged in just right, it will work, but it has often lost contact and I have to re-seat it in my car's lighter socket and find a position it "likes". This problem was evident to a degree when I first received the product, but I didn't return it as we were leaving on a trip the next morning. With each use, it seemed to stay connected less and less. On my trip in October 2009, it failed completely when the tip on the unit came off and became lodged in my 12v lighter port and it required quite a bit of work, and some luck, to remove.
Even though we purchased it over a year ago, it was only subjected to very light use, maybe 35 hours in total during three trips and it failed. This is a very poorly made product with little quality control. Please don't waste your money.

Worked perfectly!Aug 19, 2008
By Bad Cat!
I bought this to use as an extension cord/multiple outlet to use in my car. The cord extends about 4 feet, allowing the main unit to sit comfortably in the middle or back of the car. While a different (cheap) multi-plug outlet died early in the trip, this unit survived the full journey (many 12-hour driving days), powering one GPS, two cell phones, and a portable fridge! There were absolutely no problems with this unit. It didn't blow a fuse or even warm up at all. The unit isn't nearly as huge or heavy as others claimed - it is exactly the size and weight I'd expect for a four-outlet unit. Measures about 5.25" x 3" x 1.75" with a removable bracket on the base. A great product for the price!
