ENERGIZER 180W Cup Inverter 12V DC cigarette lighter to 120V AC to power laptop notebook & more w/ 4 USB ports 2.1A shared compatible with iPad & more

My van has 3 “cigarette lighters”, a regular plug and a USB in it. You’d think that would be enough for a family of four on a road trip, but nooooooo… not this family. We have several gadgets each that need charging so road trips usually consisted of hearing, “but I need to charge my PHONE”… “But I’m trying to finish my GAME but the battery is dying!”… “It’s my turn”

Oh. My. God. Kill. Me. Now.

We’ve got several things that do something similar to this, but it’s either something we’ve rigged up or things come unplugged too easy and we end up with wires everywhere and… well, it’s a mess.

This little thing may keep my therapist from getting her yacht this vacation season because it really does solve a problem. I realize, yes, “first world problems”, but it really is a great little tool. It fits right into the cup holder in the van and plugs into the power outlet “cigarette lighter” and the kids can each have 2 USBs to charge off of (and the plug, but I refuse to let them use it because there’s only one and… yeah).

The only downside I have is that the cord is placed on the side and while it fits most of my cupholders, it doesn’t sit well in the one in the front seat (which is fairly deep), so it sits funny, the cord coming out of the top would have been more useful.

But… eh. It keeps my kids from killing each other and me out of the xanax. Win.

Recommended for people with too many darn cords in their cars and not enough places to plug stuff in.
