 "Does what it's supposed to do." 2010-03-30

By Darryl Giors (Los Angeles, CA)

I've owned a few car Y-splitters in the past and this one is one of the best I've used. The wiring is thick and well shielded. Overall construction is better than most I've seen. It also doesn't wiggle it's way out of the car's socket over time like some accessories do.

I appreciate the fact that it has a fuse. I presume that the fuse will work if there is a short or an overload but this has not been tested.

Part of why I mention the fuse is that in the past I have had Y-splitters short and blow a fuse in my car. If you don't know what's happening at first you will probably blow more than one fuse before realizing where the problem is.

Great price for a truly excellent product.

 "Works Well, Mostly" 2010-02-25

By Brian Haynes

The product works as you would expect, with one caveat. There is a little wiggle room around the plug, at least in the outlet in my car, so that it is possible for the end of the plug to not make the correct contact. Thankfully, the devices that I plug into it all have lights that indicate that they are getting power, so when I plug in the splitter, I just make sure that the lights are on. I have had very occasional issues where if I shift around what's plugged into the splitter the plug on the splitter may shift out of position on the outlet, but this is pretty rare. I've only used it in one car, so I don't know if the problem is from my outlet or from the plug on the splitter. After trying four bulkier splitters that wouldn't fit in the small space around my outlet, I'm just glad to have a solution that works!

 "Worked fine for me." 2009-12-02

By Mhay (USA)

I had this product for over a year and I never had any problems that the other people are talking about. For over a year, my radar detector was plugged into the circular DC input and my phone charger or notebook cord was plugged into the AC input. The black top that plugs into the cigarette lighter outlet of your car will occasionally come off, but it screws right back on. The only thing I've never tried was the USB input. What I like most about this DC to AC adapter is that you don't lose your circular input (cigarette lighter outlet) and you get an extra USB input as a bonus. Most adapters would have only 1 or 2 inputs. This one has 3. Today my car got broken into and someone stole it, so I'm buying me the same exact one. I don't want to risk buying something else when I know this one works...at least for my use.

 "TERRIBLE and hazardous - don't waste your money" 2009-08-30

By M. Nelson (Jackson, MS USA)

I bought this for a car that needed to charge both a USB and a conventionally powered device as well. The good: it did charge both devices and apparently did not damage either. The bad: it literally started BILLOWING SMOKE after just a few hours use and could have caused serious damage if not removed. It was actually hot to the touch when it was pulled from the car socket.

I would not recommend this product to anyone for any reason as not only is it a complete waste of the money, but from my experience, it is actually hazardous to life and property.

 "Great buy" 2009-08-24

By Ari Shamash (New York, New York, USA)

I bought this device for an 8 day car vacation trip. I specifically wanted to recharge and power my MacBook Pro, which comes with an 85 Watt power supply (my kids used the MBP in the car to watch videos). It was used continuously while we were driving, approximately 22 hours total during the 8 day trip. The device just basically worked, what more can I say? I also used the built in USB port to charge up my cell phone and iPod (only one device at a time).

According to the documentation, this device only outputs 90W sustained. This wasn't an issue for me, as I doubt the MBP was drawing anywhere near the 85W limit of the power supply. Compared to others reviewed at amazon.com, this device does not have a fan, so it operates silently. The last thing I needed was *more* noise in the car.. ;-)

The only negative I had is that the MBP plug was kinda loose in the AC outlet in the device, not sure if that's the fault of the MBP power adapter or this device. It was tight enough, so the plug did not fall out while the car was in motion.

I'm glad I bought this device.

 "No good...." 2009-08-22

By naps8532 (San Francisco, CA)

I bought this power inverter for a vacation and I wanted to use it in the airplane power hookup. I plugged it in and noticed the green light was flickering, so I pulled it out. It immediately fell apart. The black tip fell off and everything came undone. I put it back together and tried to use it again, same problem. I kept trying and trying and one of my attempts I was able to use it for about 2 minutes until it started smelling like fire. The green light kept going on and off and finally a flight attendant asked me to unplug it because if it starts smoking we're gonna have to make an emergency landing.

I Got this to use when the lights got left on in our SMART forTwo and the battery got drained.

This might have worked if we had noticed the lights on sooner and the battery was not so drained.

 "Not sure about this yet" 2008-09-20

By Laurie A. Hodges (Springfield, MO)

I plugged it all in and thought it was going to work because I heard the door ding on the dead car, but when I checked it 15 minutes later, nothing. Not even the charger seemed to be working. Then I figured out that it had blown my cigarette lighter fuse in the dead car. I also found out later that my battery was completely dead so I don't know if that had anything to do with it blowing a fuse. I'm sure I'll try it again someday. So, not fair to rate it either good or bad. All I know is it did not work for me in this situation.

 "an end to speeding tickets" 2010-04-03

By J. Tyson (Baltimore MD)

My first long trip using the Whistler certainly saved me 2 tickets. The radar detector alerted me that the officer had locked-on to my car and I was able to reduce speed quickly and shortly after, on my return journey the Whistler alerted me that there was a cruiser hiding behind a wall with radar locked on to me. I am by no means a speed freak but I have a habit of driving slightly above the limit and recommend this product to save points on the license.

This detector has many cool features, and gives the initial impression that it is a hi-tech wonder.

This product is equivalent to the $100 items you would buy at a local department store. Has saved me from atleast two speeding tickets in the first month of ownership. The range is short to medium at best. The charge does not last more than 8 hours tops. I really like the fact that it is cordless which is one of the reasons I purchased this. I get a fair amount of false positives which is annoying. All in all I would go with something else.

 "Great Product!!" 2010-01-31

By R. Ginther (Kansas City, Mo.)

This new whistler is great!!! The fact that it is cordless makes it universal from car to motorcycle. It's charger works very well when plugged in to a power point for a short time. The XTR-540 lasts a whole week on one charge on my work commute, (approx 12 hours). Since my commute is 45 minutes to and from work, the battery saver set to 1 hour works well for me.

On the other side, this unit will detect radar alot further than the eye can see, if it alarms, you better believe it.

Buy it!!! for the money, it's the best on the market. It's better than my last $400.00 Escort that was stolen.

 "XTR-540 Review" 2009-12-26

By D. Faulkner

Overall I am very pleased with this radar detector. The one inconvenience is with the digital compass. When you mount the detector in a different vehicle or even in a different place on your car's windshield you have to recalibrate the compass. It's very easy to do, but a little annoying....you have to drive in two complete circles.

 "Low Quality" 2010-02-18

By Bill

I own a previous version of this jump starter. My was made by UST and not Wagan. The exterior is identical to my unit so I assume it is made by the same manufacturer. I normally recharge it every two months even if I have not used it to maintain a full charge for when I need to jump start a car. I forgot to charge it for about 5 months and the unit is completely dead. I have try to charge it but when you press the battery status button, you can see the voltage just keep dropping. I have try to recharge it several times and I think the battery is completely dead. The charger adapter is also dead. I measure the output voltage and it measures a little over 3 volts. I take special care of my adapters so I do not damage the wires. This unit was only used several times to add air to several tires. It has not been used to jump start. Overall very bad quality.

I also have a Vector unit which is now Black and Decker and it also was not charged for 5 months. This unit still had two red lights which indicate it was in good condition. I recharge it for several hours and it came back with full power. I also own Jump and Carry JNC660 jump starter. This is a professional unit with 1700 peak amps. It can hold a charge for months and still show plenty of power. This unit is the best but expensive ($130). This unit can jump start big engines and completely dead batteries.

One other general comment for those people out there assessing which jump starter to buy. These lower cost, lower peak amp starters are only good for cars that has a weak battery (i.e. as engine is slow to crank over). If your battery is dead where the engine cannot even slowly crank over, these starter will not have enough power to start your car so do not blame the jump starter as low quality. I see such comments in other reviews. For a completely dead battery, you need a more powerful jump starter such as JNC660. I have the same problem with my Vector starter which has only 300 peak amps. It also would not start a completely dead battery. That was the reason I bought the JNC660 and carry it in which ever car we own that has the oldest battery. I need to buy another jump starter (I keep one in each car) and am thinking of buying JNC300XL which claims to have 900 peak amp and is about half the price of JNC660. The reviews seem very good and is made by the same company.

 "Battery Reliability is the biggest Issue!" 2010-01-29

By Ramin B. Ghadimi (Austin, TX USA)

My unit lasted less than 2 years. I successfully used it to jump start a few times and used the Air Compressor to top off tires. However, after sitting idle indoors for several months, it failed to hold a charge. The instructions warned me not to overcharge the battery, so I did not periodically recharge the idle battery. This probably led to battery sulfation, a common problem with idle Lead-Acid batteries. My experience with Lead-Acid batteries leads me to believe that the battery can be kept healthy only be recharging the battery about once a month. With a 16V DC Power Supply, I was able to recover about 1/3rd of the 18Ahr Capacity which supports my theory that the battery became sulfated. (I do not recommend trying to desulfate the battery because this involved about a dozen 2hr 15.5-16 V Charge cycles while monitoring the battery temperature).

My recommendations for this, and all other battery-based Jump Starters is:

1. Recharge the battery at least 1x per month at room temperature. Use a 'smart charger' to prevent overcharging.

2. Don't deep discharge the battery. This will dramatically reduce the life of this type of battery.

It is possible to replace the internal 18Ahr battery; however a repacement unit costs between $42 and $75 (B B Battery: VRLA Rechargeable Battery BP17-12).

 "great controller at a fair price" 2009-09-10

By Sea Angel (California/Caribbean)

I've lived with solar panels for 10 years now, mostly on a cruising yacht, and I decided to try one of these controllers with a couple solar panels I just installed on my recently acquired land yacht (a used 5th wheel trailer) and it works great! So good in fact that I just ordered a second one to bring back to my boat in the Caribbean this fall to regulate the 4 solar panels which I live with there. It's much more than just an on/off relay so it charges the batteries much better.

 "Sunforce 30 Amp charge controller" 2009-08-31

By matterhorm computers

Item works, I expected a little better performance. Shows amperage of charge accurately when it is higher than 2.5 amps, at less then 2.5amp display goes to 0.1 and does not display lower currents, then starts weirdly to "pulse".

The built in Voltmeter is not too exact. It is important to know if battery bank has 12.8V or 12.5V since this reflects the percentage of its charge - 12.8V = close to 100%; 12.5 = 70%. The Voltmeter in the device I got is about 3% off ; about 0.3V to 0.4V - I never know till I do an exact measurement).

So basically it is o.k. if one is not looking for 99% accuracy. Nevertheless, for the money I spent, I thought I'd get little more.

 "Liked it at first..." 2009-08-09

By Joe Abrahamson

Bought this controller from Amazon and really liked it at first. In fact I still like it but am having to return it.

The controller works great and is a lot better than the previous model I had on the solar panels.

Problem is that the voltage display on the unit is not working right. I have 3 80 watt GE solar panels hooked up to this controller. They put out about 22 vdc to the charge controller, which is then regulated by the controller going to the batteries at anywhere from 12-14 vdc.

Hooked the controller up and it was fine for the first hour or two. Then checked the voltage display and it was reading 20 vdc! If it was really at this level, it would overcharge my 12 volt batteries and ruin them very fast. Checked the actual output with a digital volt meter and it was actually at 13.7, which is normal. Tried a second meter and got the same reading.

End of the story is that the new controller works great, but the meter on the front of the unit that tells you what the meter is putting out to the batteries is defective 1-2 hours after being hooked up. Its going back and will be getting a better controller and hope it works better and for a longer time. Amazon was very easy to work with but hope that they get things like this fixed.
