"This Powering E:Can compact inverter provides 150w of mains power to run electronic gadgets when your travelling, such as laptops, mobile phones and MP3 players. The compact inverter provides a reliable power source, and is designed to fit into a vehicles cup holder".

IN STORE ONLY. I saw 2 in my local Tesco (Westwood Cross, Kent). The item was not priced up and in a discontinued section - I only found out the price by asking for a price check. They appear to be much more expensive online.

Barcode number is 5055175203034
Part number: RINVC150

Review on auto-express (4/5 stars):

http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/products/products/211665/ring_ecan.html

"Although we struggled to squeeze every last bit of rated power out of this 150 Watt inverter, performance at lower current levels was excellent. As with the MP75 (above), the E:Can proved to be more efficient than many rivals, and current draw on standby was minimal, too. We liked the cylindrical shape of the unit, which is designed to fit a cup-holder, while the coiled lead can stretch to suit most lighter sockets. The integral USB socket is a real bonus for charging portable MP3 players".

If this is the 120W version as in the OPs description it does NOT have a USB charger.

The 150W version does though. Could you confirm which one this is please OJ?

I paid over £20 for the 120W version and was a bit peeved that it didn't have this (despite having a block where it should go!) If this is the 150W version I might just pop out and get another one!

I can confirm this is the 150w version which has a USB charger. Description edited.

I'd agree with the review, it wont run my MacBook Pro though still a great piece of kit. Well worth £5.

Based on what? How many watts do you reckon a MBP uses? I doubt its anywhere near 150..
#8
Thanks OJ, I'm off to Tesco tomorrow then :thumbsup:

I can't see many Laptops using more than 150W - if so the battery life must be shocking!

Works perfectly with my netbook (36W) :-D

will be starting the psu also some psu,s dont like the modified sine wave (square wave) output whould though MacBook Pro wont use anyware near 150 w great buy voted hot

I bought the 120w version, waste of time. Says it is ideal for laptops and what not and it just sits there whirring up and down sounding like it's about to die and doesn't power the laptop.

Wish i'd only wasted £5.87 though!!

No laptop power supply will care.

I have a very similar product from Aldi. Just about power a lap top but does crash quite often. Howvever, ideal for lower powered netbooks works great with acer one posted nearly every day on this site!

Hmmm has this been seen outside the Westwood Cross, Kent store?

Well a couple of other posts say differently ;-)

My PSU peaks at 90w yet my 120w inverter was having none of it.

thought switch mode power supplys where sensitive to the parasitic harmonic,s generated by the square wave output of the invertor as all laptop PSU,s are switch mode so it can cause problems with some psu,s

i agree some work no problem and some will not same with desktop psu,s laptop,s only draw about 35watts some even less its just the type of output from invertor its square wave not sine wave like house mains You can get some strange problems with there output used RCD on inverter once and it fryed it in 5mins with no load on

They say differently that they might not like this inverter; they do not say that they don't like modified sine wave inverters in general.

No, they're the least likely to be affected because they rectify and smooth the mains that is supplied to them - you can even supply DC to a laptop power supply and it will be happy. Things that are more likely to be affected are devices such as AC motors.

None at Tesco Quedgeley store in Gloucester

none at reading (kings meadow)

yes i know but some do it better i am well aware laptop psu, will run on DC as i use one at work on 110vdc no problem but a harsh square wave can hard to filter out they dont produce perfect square wave put o scope on one .I run alot of thing,s of a invertor as we have stables with no mains supply .Not had any problems with motors as longe as well under rated capacity of invertor due to starting load but had loads of problems with anything with switch mode supply only about 50% of them work and its nothing to do with wattage .ps ac series motors will also run on DC which is most AC motors with brushes
#28
Yes, universal motors will run on AC and DC.
#29
does anyone know of any stock around manchester?
cheers

Wow this was a hot deal. these 150w ones are going for like £35+ now!
