    Waste of money

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Can't think of any

    Cons

    • Cheap Materials
    • Plastic Melts Easily
    • Poor construction
    • Poor design
    • Pricey / Poor Value

    Best Uses

    • Donation To Recycling

    Comments about Enercell™ Vehicle Adapter Plug w/ Banana Jacks:

    Like one poster said-it cuts the wire rather than mashing it, plastic barrel melted when under a 5 amp DC load then came apart when I removed it from the power-point socket. Even at half the price it'd be too expensive. Intended to use if a plug on other equipment failed or when I wanted to test something.
    Wasted money and effort on this one - Radio Shack can do better.

    • Can't Think Of Any

    Comments about Enercell™ Vehicle Adapter Plug w/ Banana Jacks:

    Purchased this to power my 100 watt ham radio from a 20 amp vehicle power port. It was well fused (thankfully), and remained in the cigarette socket all the time. After about 3 months of use, I noticed the radio would go off and then come back on. Eventually, the radio had so many "surges" of applied power, that it started working erratically. When I removed the cigarette plug to inspect it, the positive tip end just fell off. Attempts to screw it back into the housing failed. It repeatedly kept falling out/off. I don't understand how something screwed together could come apart, when it was never removed from the socket. The threads seemed to be OK when initially installed, but they sure wern't when it came apart. No one touches my truck but me, so this remains a mystery!

      Slight problem

      Pros

      • Rugged

      • Hole drilled a bit high

      Best Uses

      • Emergency power

      Comments about Enercell™ Vehicle Adapter Plug w/ Banana Jacks:

      Works OK, but holes drilled in terminals are about 0.1" above surface of the connector. When you put in a wire and tighten the connector, the wire tends to get cut rather than mashing against the surface.
