The PowerTrip 480 offers two options to power your devices, either from your vehicle's 12V DC power outlet, up to 175 watts, with the included 12V DC cable or directly from your vehicle's battery, up to 480 watts, with the included battery cables.

Safety features such as user-replaceable fuses, surge protection, and automatic shutdown protect your connected devices and automotive battery. Other features include a status LED, battery clamp cables, 12V DC power plug and cable, and a handle that can easily wrap cords. The PowerTrip 480, which comes with a two-year limited warranty, is ideal for TV and computer electronics, power and hobby tools, cordless chargers, and other accessories that use up to 480 watts of power. NOTE: Combined wattage not to exceed 480 watt peak using the battery cables and not to exceed 175 watt peak using the DC cigar plug.
