Wagan 4-Way 12V Automotive Socket Extender / Duplicator

Wagan 4-Way 12V Automotive Socket Extender DuplicatorI was looking for a way to leverage my single 12vDC cigarette outlet into four. That way I can run four chargers or devices at the same, mostly the chargers. I could have used “splitters” but I wanted something more technologically correct.

I did a bunch of research and came up with two units that I thought would do the job really well. This review will cover one of those Wagan 4-Way 12V Automotive Socket Extender / Duplicatoroptions. ..the Wagan 4-Way 12V Automotive Socket Extender / Duplicator.

Here is the mission statement –

“Provide multiplication of a single 12vDC cigarette outlet into four 12vDC outlets.”

Requirements & Restrictions –
  • Must not drawdown the battery while not in use.
  • Must not draw excessive amounts of voltage for the unit’s operation.
  • Must efficiently use battery voltage while charging radios.
Technical specs –
  • Size: 4.75 x 2.75 x 1.5″
  • 4 x 12vDC cigarette outlets.
  • 31″ medium duty cord.
Pluses –
  • None that stuck out to me.
Minuses –
  • The information said there was an “easily accessible fuse” but I was not able to find it, let alone access it.
  • The top is vented to allow any potential heat to dissipate so the unit is not weather resistant.
  • It would have been kinda cool to have an on/off switch on it.

Unfortunately, I am just not that crazy about this unit so I am going to give it a “Do Not Buy!” unless you are desperate. There are five reviews on 12vDC socket duplicators so be patient until you’ve read them all.
