This was bought as a Cnristmas gift for my husband who commutes approximately one hour each way He has already has the opportunity to utilize the charger and it worked like a charm on a single woman with 3 small children in the car. She was thrilled and on her way and everyone was safe. This is definitely one of the most practical gifts I have ever made and am thrilled I bought it and I feel safer knowing he has this item with him with all the driving he is doing both day and night. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about buying the inverter to go for it, I price matched and did a lot of research and this is the best priced item, best quality I could find, we are thrilled with the product.

Excellent and feel safer already
I bought this as a gift for my mother who needed something to do her breathing treatments in case of power failure. I thought is sounded like a good deal and would try it. She can also charge her cell phone. Also in case she needs to it is good for the car. She does travel a lot. In fact I am thinking of getting one for myself in case of power failure. I an disabled and on oxygen and do breathing treatments and this will really help ease some worry .
I was excited when I found a product like this, I needed a power point for a trade-fair that I was doing and did not have electricity supplied to my tent. When I ordered the unit I needed it for Saturday and the shipping options said that I could pay expedited shipping and have it on the Thursday or have it on the Friday for regular shipping price, I decided to take a chance. It arrived on the Friday and I was thrilled. I charged it all day and went in the evening to set-up my booth and strung Fairy lights around the inside of my tent and plugged them in and they worked fine, my booth looked really nice and it was worth the extra time. I looked in the leaflet and understood what amount of time that the power pack would give me. I went home after set up to to charge my power pack as the battery was getting low on the indicator light and knew it had to be charged more and did not need the power pack for 24hrs later anyway. When I went to plug the charger into the power pack, the little outlet part on the power pack fell into the unit, I could not believe that this had happened. I did not push it in hard just pushed it as normal and now I had no way of charging the unit. I just wanted to cry. I am highly disappointed.
Bought two of these. Both units problematic. Followed instructions on proper charging before use but both units failed after just one use of the 110 volt inverter function. Everything seemed to be working as normal with a small consumption 110 volt tv. After use I tried to recharge unit it would not return to a full charge. This was the same exact outcome on both units. I purchase them from Walmart and got a refund.
i am writing this again, it thought j-u-n-k was too sensitive... i would explain but do not want to write a review that will not be allowed. my score should tell you my findings.
