OK product but not well thought out Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
The product that shipped was similar to but not the same as the product displayed. No strap was included (but it was not needed). The switch was a round blue illuminated switch (17 mA, probably incandescent) under where the strap would go. The two Powerpole outlets were there but (not in the description) there was a lighter socket and a dual USB charger. The current capacity was problematic. The main fuse is 30 A, but the power switch is rated 20 A continuous. The 30 A Powerpole contacts are wired with 14 AWG, but the switched outlet appears to be 16 AWG. The battery leads are 12 AWG. An 80 Ah battery can surge a lot more than 20 A, and put out 40 A (at least) for several minutes, which would blow the switch or fuse. The wiring quality inside appears good, though. The battery ring terminals are 5/16" and needed replacing to fit my 3/8" terminals.
