Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice neat design and potentially very useful but.... I bought one of these to use in my motorhome cab in the Spring before setting off on a 9 week trip to Croatia. Sadly, it failed before I got through Belgium. Broken spring in one of the sockets. I duly changed it on return and it lay unused until mid-October. Now I'm just back from a 4 week swing through southern France, where the new one failed after 3 or 4 uses. This time it melted in one of the sockets. The 'fastblow' fuse does not seem to have protected it. I cannot think that I have overloaded it having only plugged a varied combination of satnav, ipod or smartphone. I can only put it down to poor materials/manufacture. Unfortunately, I shall not be near the branch where I made the purchase(s) and am not sure whether I have the receipt anyway. I can only advise others to steer clear of this adaptor. One star for design potential.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very neat fit in car as no trailing extension cable required/used, and the ability to swivel the sockets by up to 90 degrees is very useful

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I was looking for one of these so that I could plug in my phone and sat nav. The store didn't have any in stock but offered to post to me. Arrived the next day so top marks for that. Plugged the unit into the socket with nothing else connected and it blew the car fuse! replaced fuse tried again same result. Stripped the unit down looking for short circuits etc, nothing obvious, removed the springs from the adapter sockets and tried again, this time with a higher rated fuse in the car fuse box, yet again same result - fuse blown. It seems the piece that inserts into the car socket is a very loose fit allowing the unit to wobble around in the socket, perhaps this is the cause? I had high hopes for this but sadly it is consigned to the dustbin and an alternative solution found

Can you plug in the in-car ceramic heater & a sat nav at the same time .thank you Melvin
Asked by: Melvin
This is to allow two items that have a cig lead power adaptor to be used simultaneously on one cig lead socket (you would need to check that the current pulled from both items does not exceed the fuse rating of the car cig socket).

Can I use one of these twin cigarette socket adaptors to run two portable DVD players?
Asked by: Ella
This should be fine. Although, please note it will draw more current with 2 x items plugged in at the same time (would drain battery quicker ).
