@narfcake I had one arrive DOA, plugged in, LED came on for a flash, then died, no load connected. Not a problem with my car (30A circuit), nor the load (none was connected). Just plain junk. Again, for some products Woot/Meh is basically the returns triage extension of these companies.
@narfcake I tried to make turbo chili once, but it exploded all over the engine.
When I was a child, my father drove truck for a local moving company for a few years. I’d get the chance to go with him from time to time on overnight hauls. It was a bitter cold Nebraska night and Dad made hoagie type meatball and cheese sandwiches in the kitchen and wrapped them in aluminum foil and we took off into the night. i figured we were eating cold sandwiches, but he plopped them down on the floorboard of that truck and and told me to ride with my feet in the seat, sitting cross-legged. He turned the heat on full and rolled down his window and we shot down the Interstate highway cooking sandwiches on the floor of an old semi. They were damn tasty - and mighty hot.
@Mehsturbator as most of you know, the CPS175SU doesn’t have the thrust-to-weight ratio that the MiG-28 has. And, it doesn’t bleed energy below 300 knots like the MiG-28. However, the MiG-28 does have a problem with its inverted flight tanks. It won’t do a negative G push over. The latest intelligence tells us that the most it will do is one negative.
This thing works great when it actually works. It doesn’t work if I leave it plugged in when I start the car, and just yesterday it randomly stopped until I unplugged and plugged it back in. Also, the fan is really loud and sometimes sounds like it’s having a lot of trouble when it first starts up.
Did anyone else pop an ambien before checking out today’s deal? It took longer than it should have to realize I was not about to purchase a pair of binoculars.
Actually, I need to check the front page again to check if they indeed are not binoculars.
Last time I ordered 2 of these, one of them was DOA. (Haven’t opened the other yet). Meh says to call cyberpower-- I did, left a message, never heard anything back. Don’t waste your time buying these. Just another product you have to open and test everyone you get, like those damn LED rope lights I got burned on.
I keep a power inverter in each of my cars. My newest inverter is this exact model – which I bought from Meh for $15 (including shipping) in October.
A power inverter saved my butt back in 2011. We had a freak ice storm, and a bunch of foot-thick tree branches fell across our long communal road. Obviously, the power got knocked out. I had the chainsaw, right? But frozen wet wood dulls a saw chain in one or two cuts, and I needed to sharpen the chain. My electric sharpener needed electricity. Power inverter to the rescue!
I cleared access to my neighbor’s place as well as my own. For that (and another favor), he gave me a bottle of Johnnie Walker.
So be smart and get an inverter – it’s your ticket to free whiskey!
I bought a 150 watt last week on amazon for 8.99 and just bought 2 of these because they last about a year… this is a good deal dont out think yourself into not buying this read my lips "GREAT DEAL "ty Meh
