Easy to connect via the cigarette adapter (or if you're more mechanically inclined you can connect it directly to the battery).  Enough power for most portable devices that need AC power and the USB port is SUPER convenient.

Great inverter, and great price

The only con i have is that the mounting holes for the screws are almost immpossible to get to because of the design. It is extremely difficult to put screws in the mounting slots because the inverter sticks out over top of them.


but other than that it is great. I use it all the time. I attached it to my sub box and almost have it handy when i'm playing music at a party or such. Lots of people use it to charge their cell phones or such.
