    Decent splitter for cigarette lighter

    This is a splitter to provide another plug for vehicle power adapters, or in "old school" terms, this device will provide two cigarette lighter outlets. In my case, I needed one cigarette-style outlet for a radar detector and another for a car charger plug for my phone. Another option I could have done was to buy a cigarette style plug with USB slots. This would have allowed me to charge up two phones using USB charging cables. Since I already had a car/cigarette style plug for my phone, I didn't see any reason to spend extra money. All in all, this device provides an extra plug that you can customize to your power needs. Plain and simple.

    Just Plug It In! Here's The Good & Bad:

    This Insignia Vehicle Power Adapter Splitter does exactly what it's designed to do. If you need more plug-ins, then get this. The Good: -Does what it's designed to do. -Has a red light that lights up when plugged in properly to let you know it's receiving power. -Will bend up to 90 degrees so it will flexibly fit where you need it to. The Bad: -Even though it will bend, the adapter itself is quite large/bulky. Recommend that you use this in a roomy area, as it may not fit in tight places. All in all, I recommend this and it makes for a simple solution if you need an extra DC port for your vehicle.

    Car charger

    This was the exact charger that I purchased before from Best Buy before. It lasted a long time and provided excellent service in multiple vehicles. At some reason for no apparent reason, it overheated. (The plastic nut that secures the pin that contacts the car socket.) The charger power indicator light is on the opposite side of the charger when you flip it up. A lil odd in my opinion, when you grow accustomed to seeing a light on devices when plugged. It looks and feel well built. Decent price. Less than $20.

    So my old nuvi gps (circa 2010) works great in my 2003 van, but the cord doesn't make connection with newer vehicles (no one seems to understand this plight--"it doesn't happen!" they keep telling me). Well, I bought this before tossing the gps, and it works great! The adapter allows the gps cord connector to make the necessary contact with the new car's 12v outlet (oh, and it gives me somewhere charge my ipod at the same time). If you have an old gps that doesn't "connect" to a new vehicle, this is likely to solve that problem.

    Look for a different product

    This adapter/splitter is decent but you can most likely find something better. If you want to use the ability to have a different angle it is difficult to get it to stay at that angle. There is nothing to lock it into place and when you hit a bump and sometimes falls over. It's ok if you need it just in the upright position otherwise find a product that allows you to lock it in place.

    Does the trick for families!

    We got this on account of the power cords that originally came with our portable DVD players tearing up. This thing is sturdy and actually powers up the DVD players much better. We need those DVD players big time as we travel a lot with twin toddler boys. If the players die dodo ear drums! This is great for families and it takes a beating as well as one of my boys threw it hard on the ground when I had taken it and placed within his reach. Works great!

    Works, but sticks out a bit far

    The adapter works fine, fits snugly into the receptacle without wobbling, but it does stick out a bit far and can interfere with the shifter. Luckily it pivots (some others are fixed, or have the dual outlets on a cable) out of the way when not in use, but when plugs are in there, it extends far enough out of the dashboard that I occasionally bump into it when shifting (even with it pivoted).

    The only one that broke had two flexible cables attached, which was more flexible in my car's configuration. This one, because it's one hard plastic piece, gets in the way of the gear shift and people's knees all the time. I'm constantly having to adjust it and push it back in. Not a great design. I only bought it because that's the only one they had.
