      Good Morning Sir
      I have this unit installed with screws just below my head unit and it is working absolutely fine when used to charge laptop, camera battery and any kind of mobile charger. I have even used it to power a good 2.1 music system. It has succefully proven itself in my car which is mediocre WagonR old.
      If you are sure with the "Wattage" consumption of your AC device is below 150 watts, then try changing the device Blade fuse (back side of inverter) with slightly higher rating, or change regular car fuse with higher rating. Say 15 amps atleat or even below 20 amps. This device has a complicated INVERTER circuit which surely demands some power to work on but it can easily go upto 180 or 200 watts with 'factor of safety' margin considering.

      Didnt have the patience to try all that. initially i thought it was something to do with my car or the HU which i was running in the car. In any case i sold it off to another poor soul who ended up blowing the fuse on his Vento, XUV and a Fortuner. we finally took it to service center and the guy figured it as a manufacturing defect in the unit; damage 650/-

      i finally bought a Ducasso . very happy with the purchase. no more aeroplanes(sound) taking off in my car

      Belkin - As I said in a previous post, It is a 230v power supply which powers all things if consumption is around or less then 150~180 watts. After some time of its usage I was getting problem because of a corroded switch/ connection so I repaired I myself - After that everything is fine.
      For the relaibilty, I have never used similar inverter from other brands so can't say if they are better, I just went with the brand name. Past 4 years, I didn't need it to take to service center so no idea about Belkin after sales service. That unit is a proper inverter unit with needed capacitor/ transformer, large heatsink to get worked. Some users have faced blown fuse continuously and some are using it as plug and play unit. Better get it tested before invoice.
