Sunforce power converter

"Works fine, but makes a lot of noise - especially a high pitched whine that is clearly audible during operation. If you use it in your bedroom, it may keep you up. Does the job, though."

"Although the first unit shipped had a problem another was shipped to replace it immediately and it works great. We use it to power our Igloo cooler. The price is more than reasonable. The igloo brand converter costs 2 1/2 times more."

Fine DC Power Supply

"I bought the power supply to power multiple 12V DC devices at the same time. It works great. Be sure to stay within the amperage rating and you will be very pleased with the performance."

Sunforce AC to DC converter poor choice

,
May 22, 2008
By Niteprowl2
from Mountain City, TN
"Great idea but not quite what it says it will do. It makes many claims as to what it will run, but few are legitimate.I have not found a compressor that requires less than 6 amps surge power to run. I have a Impact wrench for my lug nuts that will not even start with this device. In reviewing what it is supposed to run, things like a DC cooler, air compressor or TV, it just does not provide the power necessary to run these items. Very disappointing. Great idea but poor real life use. Please save your money until something better comes along."

"Power supply doesn't work on the 12V portable air compressor as claimed by the company.
My guess is that the amperage output is not high enough. So I do not recommend this product for any 12V portable air compressor. Use the battery plug from your car battery.
