Takeaway: Convert car accessories that use cigarette lighter adapters for use at home.

This device is pretty straight forward. It's an adapter for you to use car accessories that plug into the cigarette lighter in a standard wall outlet. It is solidly constructed out of a hard plastic shell and has thick power cables. It accepts an input voltage of 90-265V AC power and output to an attached cigarette lighter port. The plug for the wall outlet is interchangeable so you can use a different cable cord for other style outlets while traveling. It also has two USB ports so you can power/charge other USB devices at the same time. The top USB port has variable current output of 0-2.4A and will automatically detect what your device needs. The bottom USB port outputs a constant 2.4A. When the converter is powered on and ready to use, the LED indicator light will be a solid green. If there is a short or surge, it will flash.

It's a bit heavy at 13 oz so not exactly something you would to carry around a lot, but it's small enough for the glove box in case of emergencies. For me, this device has limited uses since all my adapters these days are USB cables, and I have few dedicated car chargers. While I could use just simply the included USB ports, this device is much larger than your average USB charging brick and isn't worth the extra weight and size if that's all you are going to use it for. If you only have a cigarette charger for a particular device, this will enable you to use those devices in the home and works just fine. Be aware that this adapter will warm up when in operation, so make sure it has plenty of ventilation and don't use it on flammable fabrics like a rug or sofa.
