This Multi Port Power Inverter turns your car cigarette lighter into an all singing, all dancing gadget recharging power station. Behind that slightly bulky exterior is a 12 V DC to 110 V AC inverter and a US 110 V mains socket. The socket is rated at 100 W so you won’t be plugging in your hair dryer but it will definitely run a laptop or a small telly. Maybe not a plasma. There’s also USB recharging port, a replacement cigarette lighter power socket and electronic circuit protection to keep things nice and safe. US$39.95 from Herrington.
Just plug our Multi-Port Power Inverter into your cigarette lighter socket, and gain a 110-volt AC outlet on the road. Use it to run your laptop or portable DVD, or to recharge batteries while you drive. USB port powers your iPod, Blackberry, PDA, or camera.
