Ring Automotive is now selling a new compact inverter in a bid to capitalise on the increasing number of gadgets taking over the nationâ€™s cars.
These days, cars are more like mobile offices with blackberrys, mobile phones and PSPs all vying for their share of power.
But buying multiple special in-car adaptors for every piece of electrical equipment can be expensive so Ring has come up with the MP:120 compact inverter, which plugs into the cigarette lighter providing a 240v AC mains electricity supply.
The inverter provides a 120w power output and comes with a USB charging point to recharge mobile phones and MP3 players at the same time as using the 240v AC mains power.
Simon Harvey, Ringâ€™s commercial manager, said: â€œThe MP:120 takes inverter technology to another level. Combining a sleek compact design, flexibility of positioning and a powerful output, it is an ideal match for the top-range gadgets being charged.â€
The product has a suggested retail price of Â£34.99.
