    I bought this little inverter because I needed to be able to power my laptop in the car. It worked GREAT!! I was able to charge it up in around the same time it took to charge it in the house!! I was very impressed by this. It also allowed me to charge my cell phone MUCH FASTER then through my normal charger, for that reason alone this is a great buy. But, if you're a person that is on the go with lots of things to charge this is a must buy! You'll won't want to be without one again. I'll always have one in my car. Note: The only issue I had with mine is that one of the plug cover openings wouldn't open, but there's another one so I was ok. Their design on the plug covers is kind of odd and in the way, but once you have them open it's ok.

    I bought this because I was going on a road trip and my laptop couldn't hold a charge for more than 10 minutes. This device didn't charge my laptop, but it did allow me to use it on the trip. A couple of us plugged cell phones in for a partial charge (the device can only handle so much), and we plugged in a fan that had a USB port a couple of times when the air conditioning couldn't reach passengers in the back seat. I'm definitely keeping this where I can find it, as I might need it to charge my phone on the go at some point. It was the same price as the model with half of the outlets, so it made sense to get this one. It also helps to charge laptops that don't have USB chargers (like mine!).

    I bought this to power 2 laptops while on a road trip. It worked OK to power the laptops when fully charged, but couldn't handle the load to charge the batteries as well as power the laptops. At $50, it's overpriced for the size. 400W units are usually less expensive. I'll end up returning this and exchanging for a higher power unit. It got the job done. I did like the hook to hang from the seat map pocket, as well as the USB charging ports. Those are great features.

    We bought this on our way out of town, about 3 hours into our trip we plugged it in so everyone could charge their stuff only to discover it did not work. Well as with most trips when you stop for gas you clean up the trash laying around and one of the kids threw out the package so Best Buy wouldn’t take it back. So now I have a $40 paperweight

    I needed a solution to charge laptop with regular home/wall charger in a car for work. Utilizing a surface pro 4 with external USB GPS device and needed to have good charge. This device provides TWO wall plugs and 2 USB plugs with LONG extension. Not long after that took a 700 mile road trip with family and this was PERFECT to keep the kiddos devices charged!

    Was going on a long road trip and originally looking for an inverter to run my wife's laptop. After talking to a few Best Buy people they showed me this item which handled both the laptop and both our cell phones. It's simple to use and works well. It's a bit clunky, i.e. larger than I would like, but it supports two standard plugs for items like the laptop and two USB outlets for phones or cameras, etc. Very handy.

    My new job position required a lot of driving and I needed to access my work laptop while on the road. Of course that meant, shopping for a car auxiliary jack that has a three prong plug. I found CyberPower 160 power inverter. So far, I am enjoying the power charger. It also includes two USB plug-in charger so I am able to charge my cell phone and laptop. I would highly recommend this product for a person who is on the go.

    Power inverter works great. It has 120 V outlets I can use to charge batteries for cordless power tools plus it has 2 usb outlets to charge devices at the same time. My only complaint is that it only has a clip on the back which I don’t have a good spot to clip it, so I really need a piece of Velcro or something to hold it in place.

    This unit was a little pricey, but it works really well. You can charge two items at once from the USB ports and the outlets will handle at least one laptop simultaneously. ( I have not tried two yet.) I like the long cord so you can place it where you want. I hang mine on the passenger seat pocket. One more thing- one sub outlet is 2.1 and really boosts the charge on my iPhone 6 quickly.

    This item works well in providing power to phones, devices, chargers, etc. We have used it pretty heavily without any overheating or other issues so far. The only thing I'd like to see is for it to fit into a cup holder or something. As it is constructed now, it kind of slides all over the center console and falls on the floor sometimes. Not a big deal though.

    We did not have time to do research and did not know what to expect when we purchased this item. We were pleasantly surprised that we were able to plug in the laptop (outlet) and tablets (USB) during a road trip and not have any issues. What a lifesaver for long car rides. May think about purchasing another one to keep in the other vehicle so we are never without.

    I went in looking for a wall plug/AC plug adapter for a portable DVD player. I had a small one that stopped working. The only one Best Buy had was $35-$40, has 2 USB ports, and 2 wall-plug slots, and probably a couple other attachment ports I forgot already. So more than I wanted/needed, but will probably be extremely handy. Just wish they had something smaller like I wanted.

    When you have two or more teenagers traveling in the same car for a 16-hour roundtrip college tour, you need something like this device to keep everyone charged and engaged! This power inverter has enough juice to keep a laptop and three cell phones going! My daughters were extremely impressed...and as they say: happy teens, happy mom. (:

    It worked better than I expected. I'm able to connected multiple devices to this at the same time. Which helps me when I'm with my daughter in the car. She can charge up her game (Nintendo 2ds) and I can charge up my phone at the same time. What tips the cake is that this charges pretty quickly too. I like it.

    A nice inverter with a long cord

    A simple inverter with two ac plugs and two 2.1A USB ports. 100W continuous/160W peek puts out as much power as your going to get from a car's DC port. The biggest advantage of this model is that is comes with a nice long cord instead of just sticking out of the port, which is handy for cars like mine with the port right next to the steering wheel.

    I just purchased a used car that didn't have as many charging ports as my previous vehicle. The used car salesman mentioned these devices since the lack of ports in the back seat for my kids could be a deal breaker. I bought this device at Best Buy, which did exactly what I needed it to do, and got a great deal on the car. Good decision!

    Nowadays everyone uses computers on the road. I bought this device when headed out on a road trip with my family so my kids could plug in their devices and charge them but also use them at the same time without having to worry about my portable chargers being stretched out front seat backseat. I can actually charge for devices using this.

    On a recent spring break trip to florida it powered my daughter's Mac Book Pro beautifully. It made for a very peaceful trip down since my daughter is one to ask "are we there yet" every mile. She watched movies, did homework, and chatted with her friends the whole way without a single power problem. Great product for the price!

    Never thought of need for having option to plug in electrical plug into cigarette lighter for use into car until I was using camera at niece's basketball game and then headed to birthday party in another town and had previously camera on while stored so battery was low when I used it.

    I bought this for a 7,000 mile Craig country trip. There were 4 people in the car with 4 cell phones, 3 tablets, 2 laptops, a wireless hotspot, 4 portable chargers and 3 cameras that all needed to stay charged. The two outlets and two USB ports worked great and with some maneuvering and sharing everything was good!
