      Exactly what I wanted

      I came across this item when searching for a way to hardwire my dash cam in my car. Initially I thought I might be restricted to using a splitter in the 12V outlet which would have also meant exposed wires along the dash or a toggle switch which I'm no fan of. This worked perfectly for my application. Upon connecting to the dash cam, I ran the cable behind the windshield header, then behind the a-pillar and zip tied the port behind the dash on the lower left side. Grounded it to the car and ran the power to an add-a-fuse in the engine bay fuse box. The dash cam now powers up/down with the ignition. And the best thing is...NO exposed cables/wires! Great value and product for the price.

      I wanted an extra 12V port to power up my chromecast so I had Geek Squad Mobile Installation put this in my car and hide it in a spot that is accessible and clear of view. The unit works great and has an in-line fuse to prevent any damages to the device. This item comes in an OEM like packaging.

      I received a SiriusXm kit for my car as a gift. This was an item I didn't know was needed until the installation. It's annoying when the additional fees keep adding up, but it was necessary for what I wanted to have done. Has performed as expected so far.

      Easy to hard wire straight to my car. You should get this instead of using the cigarette lighter adapter. The cigarette lighter adapter is loose fitting in your SiriusXM will turn off.

      Purchased this kit as part of the installation of an existing Sirius XM radio in a new VW Beatle. Wanted direct power rather than a cord plugged into the cigarette lighter. Works perfectly and it is out of sight.

      The adapter was required in order to be able to access my van's power in accessory mode. Otherwise, it would have used up the adapter plug in the front of my van. I had it installed at Best Buy.

      I had my GPS hardwired into my car by Best Buy. I was pleased they had all of the parts in stock including this adaptor. Now my GPS turns on and off with the key....really nice feature!
