|Charging my laptop from a pretend car|
When I took it out the box, of course I wanted to test it. And then dawned on me that it was 33 degrees outside, my cars were cold, and I had a better and much nerdier way of testing it; an old 12V power supply I've had for ages, which has a cigarette lighter attachment built in.
I put the new inverter through its paces in my test environment and it worked like a champ. My only grip with it so far is that it's a little loud. Running cars are normally noisy environments, but if you wanted to watch a movie with the engine turned off, the fan noise from the inverter might be a little distracting. Other than that, it seems to work great. It already has a niche in my electronics backpack.
