Does the job In the middle of Hurricane Sandy, this helped me get through life without electricity for a week. I ordered it days before the storm and it came two days after I lost my power. I was able to power my electronics devices, which was all that I really needed since I had a gas fireplace that worked.

Useful for Charging Your Portable Devices Having grown tired of having to buy over-priced car phone chargers from phone manufacturers every time you get a new phone, I grabbed this unit. You can use the stock wall plug that comes with your phone, or USB cable. Plugging your camera battery charger in is also useful. It only delivers 80W when using the Accessory or Cigarette Lighter sockets inside your vehicle, and the full 400W when connected directly to your battery.
