Great adapter if you don't over-load it.
Humble Human August 25, 2011
This adapter works perfectly for many electronic devices. It is made to be used for Light use Electronics only. Some people complain that they burn up but this may be their own fault... You can't expect this adapter to work above its amperage rating. Mine is 500 Milli-Amps. That comes to 6 Watts at 12 Volts. About the same as a night light bulb. It is meant for Small Wattage devices and works nicely for Phones, GPS devices, etc. You wouldn't want to plug in a portable auto flood light or a mini compressor for example because it will surely burn up instantly due to higher Amperage draw.
Compact & doesn't block other outlet

It's a great, simply adapter. I love it because it doesn't block the other outlet. My only complaint is the low Amp rating. It can only handle electronics up to 500mA, which prevents me from using some stuff in it.
Needs to be more powerful

Bottom line, it will charge a small device if that device is powered off. I tried to power my SIRIUSXM Roady2 with it but it wouldn't work. Anything less than 1000ma and you will not be running many devices with this type of adapter.
