Qicent 3-Socket Car Cigarette Lighter Power Adapter with 2 USB Charging Port
One of the problems in this day and age on a relatively old car (I’m using an Isuzu Crosswind XT 2006), are the ports or lack thereof.
Today, Dashcams have become more imperative rather than luxury and this alone takes one spot.
A charger, preferably Quick Charge, have also become a necessity due to terrible battery life of most phones.
So, one of the best cheap solution is an adapter.
Initially, I bought three generic adapters from Lazada. But one broke within the month, and this is just unacceptable.
As I continue to window shop in Lazada, I came across this one. As the name implies this is a 3-Socket Car Cigarette Lighter Power Adapter with 2 USB Charging Port
Out of the box
You get a fuse. This is not only surprising, it’s also amazing. If ever the device won’t work, open it up and change the fuse.
This is an extremely nice addition adding to the device’s longevity
It also has a sticky thing I don’t know what it’s for
Some Manuals and the Device itself.
Taking a tour this has 3 sockets with separated on-off switches. Fantastic touch.
It also has 2 5V USB ports. 1 with 1A, another has 2.4A. These are definitely is a nice additions, I have QC 3.0 enabled car chargers so meh
Testing it out. It managed power both my Transcend DP520 and Tronsmart QC3.0 charger.
So it works. I have just recently got this so I will have to test durability out.
Initially though, the better build , on/off switch, and the fuse looks to be a respectable, if not good, package for a P600 socket.
Hoping this will last me longer than a month as I use 2 ports every time I drive.
Will update after a month.
Edit: Upon inspection of internals, we can see that the cheap Wawawei one is made of literally just metals and jumper cables.
On the other hand, Qicent is made with much more internals including a pcb board, capacitors and a coil.
What I Liked:
Good build quality (Compared to Generic)
2 Extra USB Ports
What I Didn’t Like:
None so Far
