    Sweet deal, Those are nice. I have a different brand one permanently wired to my 10 Camaro and keep the lead accessible in the trunk.

    Just asked and hers was ~$80, but she only shops at Carsons and other snooty stores.

    My first thought is those li. Hoverboards going up in flames. You have 20 li.made inbchina batteries inside your home. Take precautions please....

    Actually it's even worse, most are in trunk or under back seat :(

    Didn't even think about all the fires.

    I think I paid 80 for mine also. Some Porsche forum thread said it was the exact same one they sell at Porsche dealerships for $230.00. lol Suckers

    Mines been plugged into the Camaro trunk for 4 straight months now... I doubt it's any more of a fire danger than a TV, microwave, alarm clock, etc.

    Li-ion batteries are one of the most dangerous things there is. I designed a controller for making multi cell packs and I was terrified to use it. Lithium is as nasty as things come and when it catches on fire you can't stop it.
