          Comments about Enercell™ 12V/1A Power Supply w/ Vehicle Power Socket:

          Purchase mine (2 of them) at the local Radio Shack only to find (tried varous house circuits) neither worked for the purpose it was intended. I carry spot lights in my truck which work just fine. However, the same spot lights will not work with this product. The green light comes on when I lplug it into a house circuit but never worked for either of my spot lights (cigerette lighter plug). In fact the green light went out when I plugged the spot light into the recepticle. Would like something that works. By the way, Radio Shack was no help in solving my problem.

              A popular, big-box retailer from Arkansas sells Coleman's 1-Amp POWERCHILL Power Supply for [$] next to ice chests in sporting goods department as of July 7, 2012. Save nearly $10 after tax. Plus, said retailer allows up to 90 days return with store credit only after 30 days, if you aren't happy with your purchase. Save your receipt, though. Radio Shack only allows a maximum 30 days to return their merchandise with a mandatory receipt required to do so. Plus, they give you grief when you do so.

                  I paid [$] for this item (same catalog #) 5 years ago, in January of 2007. I have the receipt to prove it (I've saved every receipt of every purchase I've ever made in 31 years). Now, the price is [$]. That's obscene & ridiculous. If you are foolish enough to buy this item at Radio Shack, you deserve to be ripped off. Try [@], instead.

                  Be fair when rating this type of device.1 amp (1000mA)is the max rating.I agree with previous rater that electricity should only be handled by people who read specs and use care. Check requirements of device you are powering before trying this power adapter.[@]

                    I bought this to charge my portable refrigerator, which runs off a 12 volt dc car circuit and this adapter just blinks every now and then when plugged into my house outlet. It won't even run a small refer. A waste of money.

                      I use this to charge my motorcycle GPS when traveling. The GPS doesn't have an AC adapter and only has a cigarette lighter plug for charging (and I don't have a 12V socket on the motorcycle so I charge it overnight in the hotel). This adapter is small and stows well. Ignore negative reviews from people who don't understand basic electricity concepts. Anybody who would try to run an *air compressor* off an adapter that only puts out 1A should not play with electricity.

                      I have the older model (22-505) but they look almost the same. My job was travelling all over the state and once a year from CA to TX & back. This unit rode in the bottom of my backpack for four years and was used several times a week with my celllphone car-cord. It never failed and still looks like new. Now I have an office job and still use it with my car charger for my cellphone. Might get a couple more for my two daughters' new GPS units. A little pricey, but simply works and is VERY solid.
