You never really know how bad that you have it until you are shown the light by something else. Such is the case with my this ac power adapter for my net 10 net book computer. My old ac adapter was not really that old, but it was just too big. I think that it was only about 4 years old and it was still working but it was just too big and heavy to lug around. Now, I am not  very proficient when it comes to knowing what to use and what not to use on net books, but I do a decent job, it just takes me a little bit longer to learn than most. With my battery being small in my net book, it would slow me down even more. I did not go to Best Buy looking for a ac adapter, I just stumbled onto this one. I could not believe that this was so small and I can run anything off of this. This only cost me $70.00 and I did not have to worry about purchasing any batteries.

Description
The 150 watt AC mobile power by Cyber Power is a little different than most because it only weighs 11.5 ounces, compared to my old one which is 2lb 3 ounces. This power inverter stands about 6" tall x an egg shaped 3" in size, a considerable amount smaller than my old one. CyberPower has placed three outlets in the top surface, one of them is a regular household outlet in the upper center and on the upper right side of the top surface there is a USB connection and in the lower top center there is a place for a regular adapter and you can use all three at one time. Coming out from the center front bottom there is a tangle free cord the you can plug into the car accessory to allow you to use your mobile devices.

On the bottom side of this ac power adapter unit you have a metal vent that covers a vent fan to keep this unit cool while in use. Four screws hold this screen in place and can be taken out when there is a need to clean out the inside of this unit. The outer surface of this adapter has a nice satin gloss black finish and the top and bottom is a gray in color. You will need no batteries for this unit because it operates off of the automobiles power. This ac adapter  can be used for both a laptop, net book, ipod, cell phones and a lot more.

Experience
The first thing that you will need to know is that, you have to have a car to plug this into because this will not plug into a wall outlet. You will also need some sort of way to lock this in place while it is in the car. It will not matter in some cars, but in mine this seems to fall over a lot and roll around. To clean this you should also use a cleaning cloth to keep this from being scratched up, because if you use something else you are liable to scratch the surface of the unit.


This adapter is so simple to start up the hardest thing that you have to do is to enjoy it after you plug it in. It is so simple that they do not even give you a manual, if you wish to get a manual you will have to go to the CyberPower website to get one. What little instructions that they do give you is on the inside of the inner package that this ac adapter comes packaged in. Once you take this out of the package the only three things that you have to do to get this working is plug the tangle free cord into the accessory slot the is connected to your car battery, this is usually located in the center of your console.

This first thing that you should notice is how quiet that this unit is while using any of your devices, and then you will see how cool that this unit stays unlike the larger units that you have used in the past. You will also notice that this  will plug into airplanes and autos equally.  We  have used this for mp3 players, dvd players, cell phones and ipods, lap top and mini net books. You do not have to worry about this having enough power to charge all of your devices, because the unit uses your car battery to run this power adapter. This is small enough and it does not take up much room, you will be able to keep this working no matter if you store it in a drawer or underneath the desk in a hideaway drawer.

From time to time you may have to replace the fuse that is located inside of the power plug. To replace the fuse, all you have to do is to unplug the power plug then unscrew the very end where the metal prong is at, to get at the fuse. This will take the old style cylindrical glass 15 amp fuse. I have yet to have to replace this fuse since I purchased this unit. I have been using this for about one year now.

Other options and features
There are several other features that you should know about, and they are the fact that this will allow you to run just about any household item that you can plug into any outlet you can plug into this. This will sit in the upright position on your console and it looks like a black cup of coffee. This unit will allow you to plug in many mobile devices and consumer electronics. Also the unit will operate some medical equipment such as non-vital medical equipment, tire pumps, and some emergency lights.

A couple of other features that this has, is a built in surge protection, USB charging port, automatic shut down, 2 in 1 connector, and a built in splitter, tangle free cord, convenient vertical mounting, power surge LED and a two year warranty. With this unit you should have no problem keeping things intact and working properly.

Some of the input electrical specs are votage-10.5Vdc-15.5Vdc, current 12A max, plug type 12Vdc auto (cigarette). The output specs are continuous watts-120, watts-peak 150, on battery voltage 120vac, on battery frequency 60Hz, on battery wave form simulated sine wave, outlet type- 12Vdc auto (cigarette), USB charge port-5Vdc, this is certified by ROHS compliant.


Conclusion
I am having so much fun knowing that I can finish my work on the road and that I can touch the bottom of this unit with the ease, I can run my finger across the bottom and see that there is hardly any heat being projected out. The price for this was just a little on the high side but well worth it. The performance  of the unit is outstanding and the quietness of the motor is very pleasant. Cyber Power has really out done itself this time, I have used several of their other items and have never been this impressed with a product as I am with this one. If you take a chance I can guarantee that you will not be dissatisfied with this adapter.
