Plug this into your car's cigarette lighter and charge any laptop just like at home.

Or power any gadget with a 3-pronged UK plug as long as the wattage is lower than specified by inverter.
Not a good deal imo overpriced for a low powered square wave inverter.

These are amazing for long journeys.
We spent hours driving through France last summer and having one of these for the kids gadgets was a god send!

Seems a good deal that - but short cable and no USB socket.

The Streetwize Inverter from Euro Car Parts also has low battery voltage protection alarm, over voltage, overload and thermal protection, etc. This is the underside label of the 150 Watt one I use:

They all tend to have that as standard, yours has an additional 1amp usb, this has soft start. All much of a muchness though.

For reference I got a 3000 watt (probably more like 1500w nominal) pure sine wave (and I checked with oscilliscope) for £64.

It's Banggood ,(app only price) so forget warranty but reviews seem genuine and it seems like a beast. Tested it with a hairdryer didn't struggle at all until above 1500w but might be that it was pulling the battery down which was old. Also gonna change the socket as not shuttered.

HUKD'S won't let me link, probably not paying them as much money as eglobalcentral!

This is where you miss Maplin!
150 w would be peak, so any appliance you want to run you are best off with double the wattage on the inverter. I doubt it is pure sign wave either, so won't run a floursecent light. Inverters are usually noisey as well.

Not a bad price, and as some have observed, isn't "pure" sine wave - questionable that it would be much good for stereos etc, but absolute;y fine for switched mode power supplies such as laptops, tablet chargers etc.

Power rating means it won't cope with high-current devices such as fan heaters, kettles, power drills etc, but OK for recharging cordless screwdrivers in the field.

remember - 150W is the same as leaving on three headlamps, so possibly better using when engine is running, don't run the engine just to power the inverter!
I got the 300 w ( 600 peak ) of these, for 30

It seems fine , overloaded it couple times , makes funny noise / cuts out

But it's still going

Seeing as car cigarette lighter sockets are rated at 120w (12v x 10A) this could blow the fuse under heavy load.

yes , mines clipped straight to battery

(on my boat )
Looks exactly the same as the one I got from Lidl about 15 years ago. I've only used it a few times - but it does have an annoying fan in it.
Other than charging laptops what use are these? You can charge a tablet out of the USB ports in the car anyway
I had an car battery charger from these folks and all I can say is rudimentary would be overstatement for the electrics that were contained inside. I wouldn't really trust my expensive electronics with anything they put out. Better off with something that someones had a proper tear down with on YouTube. I think the mhjnorton guy used to do inverter comparisons.
Won't these drain your car battery,?

They don't. They use electron capture technology to extract the pure energy out of the air in the car.

However, they make the driver tired if running too long. It's generally advised that the driver wears a metal cap to help lessen this effect.

This one is 150 Watt continuous, 300 Watt peak. Not pure sine wave at this price point. My one is silent during use.

Not if used with car running. But if used with engine off, this inverter will sound a buzzer when battery gets low and shut down if battery gets too low.
Can someone recommend an inverter for lorry, so I can plug ps4 and monitor

Better to ask over at trucknetuk.com community. Something rated between 2000-3000 Watt, pure sine wave, with wired remote on/off switch if you want to hide it. Inverter must be wired direct to battery with an inline fuse.

You need nowhere near that. A 500W continuous would suffice. PS4 uses less than 200W, typical LCD less than far under 100W.

Yes I agree. But still best to ask the trucking community. If you getting a PS4 for your truck you may also be looking for a microwave soon
