Duracell 813-0291-07 175 Watt DC to AC Pocket Power Source Inverter
#1 for a reason
Arrived quickly and was securely and neatly packaged. I purchased this for an extended trip to power a laptop and charge several USB devices. It effortlessly (and safely) converts the cigarette lighter into an American standard wall outlet with a USB charger port. It is light-weight, slimline, quiet and would win a beauty contest against its competition. Compared to the slightly cheaper ...
Belkin 6 Outlet Home/Office Surge Protector
Cheap and works
There's not too much to say about this surge protector. It's cheap and it provides power. I wish the outlets were rotated 90 degrees to make "wall warts" fit a bit better.
P3 International P4400 Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor
You'll be surprised at how much you'll learn from this device
the kill-a-watt really surprised me. mostly because it's extremely easy to use and very informative as well. the fact that i could see my LCD tv wattage drop as i adjusted the settings (primarily the backlight) was amazing to me. The product specs (and the standard setting) measure the output of my 32 inch LCD HDTV at over 100 watts - but using the setting that i customized (which i find looks ...
Belkin 6-Outlet Home/Office Surge Protector with Rotating Plug and 8' Cord
Works great. The Amazon picture is not correct, the cord is 8 *FEET* long not the 8 inches as is shown. The longer cord is perfect for my needs.
Belkin Mini Surge Protector Dual USB Charger
Great, Compact Laptop Companion
This is a great product overall. I take this everywhere I go with my laptop. And, best of all, there are 2 USB slots for your iPod or iPhone, or whatever other gadget you might have. It's designed with a cool swivel at the 3-prong plugs so you can position it however you'd like. Lastly, I think it's great they threw in a USB-mini USB cable. You really can't beat the price of $10!
VCT - PLUG ADAPTER - CONVERTS GROUNDED USA PLUGS TO EUROPE PLUG-GERMAN SHUCKO PLUG (VP 11W)
VCT Plug Adapter for Europe
Works as stated, perfectly. Visiting Austria where this is the standard. Just make certain your power supply is an auto-switch 110/240 Volt.
Xantrex Technologies 851-0178 XPower 175-Watt Micro Inverter
I LOVE This Thing...Saves Oodles of Noodles on Unecessary Appliances...
OK - so I'm the type that needed a car adapter for cell phone, kids DVD player, Blackberry, XM radio, etc. Spent between $10 & $20 each on these things. To quote Bill Murray in "Stripes" - STUUUUUUUUUPID! I mean, hello? $25 means I can now take anything electronic that I can carry & plugs into a wall outlet with me in the car. Which I just did driving the 4 kids on a long weekend ...
Belkin Pivot-Plug Surge Protectors
Best Power Strip Known to Man
I live in an old brownstone apartment, the kind that happily sports one power outlet per room. I previously had two six-port power strips in my living room (hooking up a computer and a TV, plus all the other bits that go along with them, hard drives, routers, game systems etc). The two six-port strips were useful, of course, turning two outlets into twelve. But of course, in a perfect world, ...
Belkin 12-Outlet Home/Office Surge Protector with Phone/Ethernet/Coaxial Protection and Extended Cord
This was just perfect for all the the electronics that I need to use. We had a few thunder storm and it seems to be working fine.
Stanley 38425 TimerMax Digislim Daily Digital Indoor Lamp Timer, White, 2-Pack
timers that work
These are the easiest timers to set and use. They are accurate and no more pns to push in or pull out.
SE Battery Tester
This is a replacement for a different model. I don't like it as well as it is awkward to use. However, for the purpose it is alright. It is as described and fair priced. Would not buy it again though.
Power Strip Liberator (5 Pack) Extension Cords
Meets UL 817 specs
"This particular product uses 16AWG wire and meets UL 817 specifications for power supply cords. That specification allows for 1625W, or roughly 13 amps at 120 volts." [...] Most homes have 15 amp breakers so don't plug a hair dryer into it and leave it on. Otherwise wall transformers for electronic gadgets draw little power. My Dell notebook charger only draws 1.6 amps.
Tripp Lite TLP810NET Protect It! Surge Protector/Suppressor 8 outlets (3 Transformers) 10ft Cord 3240 Joules
great as a power strip, as a surge protector, hopefully ill never know
is exactly what the product description says it is, an 8 outlet 3240j surge protector just plug it in, turn it on, and as long as your wall outlet is properly grounded (the green light will not turn on if it is not), you're protected transformer outlets have more than enough space between them child proof slide covers are stiff at first, but quickly loosen, i can't see these stopping any child ...
Ventamatic CX1500 Ventamatic Power Gable Ventilator Fan
Easy install and seems to be good quality
It's only been in the attic for about a week or so so I don't have a report on longevity yet. Installation was extremely easy and the fan seems to be very good quality. We just bolted it to a 3/8" plywood board with a circle cut out that we put up to cover the existing gable vent. We used some heavy duty weather stripping around where the board made contact with the existing studs just to ...
Kidde KN-COSM-IB Hardwire Combination Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Alarm with Battery Backup and Voice Warning, ...
Best of the Best
A talking detector...great idea, and multifaceted. Have them in all my properties. A first floor rental tenant family member decided to do a small brazing project in the unit late in the evening. The detector went off in the third floor apartment and the fire department called for an evacuation and venting. The tenants agreed that without the voice command they would not have known whether it was ...
P3 International P4460 Kill A Watt EZ Electricity Usage Monitor
simple and easy
Very good product, pretty much plug-n-play. I could find out things around house that were sucking power for no reason. There is a portal to submit and share such readings at [...]. I encourage people to check it out.
Honeywell RCWL300A1006 Premium Portable Wireless Door Chime and Push Button
Very good doorbell
This doorbell works beautifully and is not crappily built like a previous one I had that crapped out on me after a year.
Bug Off Instant Screen Door with Magnetic Closure for a Single or Sliding Door, 36" W x 80" H
It's not perfect, but if it's your only option......
I have two doors that I have not been able to leave open due to the lack of screen doors. A friend had this, said it came from Target, and after searching high and low I found it in a One Step Ahead catalog, and I decided to look for it on Amazon. It was cheaper here by a buck or two plus I got free shipping. I received them quickly, and both were up in less than 5 minutes. They are ...
Magna Cart Personal Hand Truck
compact and useful
My wife finds this convenient for moving her bags to and from the car. It holds a surprising amount of weight for something that folds up into such a small space. It only needs to be unfolded; no assembly was required.
GE 50246 Smart Home Door Stop Alarm
Easy-to-use, inexpensive and LOUD!
What a great idea -- a doorstop alarm that requires zero installation. Just add a 9-volt battery and you have an instant burglar alarm! Perfect for apartment/condo dwellers, travelers and the mechanically disinclined. It's also great for interior doors (e.g. bedroom) for an extra layer of security, or as a supplemental night-time alarm for the main entry door and for other exterior doors, ...
