DC Direct to 12-volt Battery – The extra-long 9-foot cable has alligator clamps to attach directly to any 12-volt vehicle or boat battery. In this power mode the WaveBox delivers the same 660 watts of cooking power as the AC cord.

thats gotta draw 60 amps to put out full power ?

DC Vehicle Power Outlet – Allows you to plug the WaveBox into a 12-volt vehicle power outlet rated at 20 amps or greater. Using the 20-amp vehicle power outlet, the WaveBox produces 235 watts of cooking power, great for reheating meals, warming coffee or heating convenience foods. Vehicle power outlets can’t supply enough power for the WaveBox to pop popcorn, although popcorn pops great using the other power options.

Check your vehicle’s owner’s manual to make sure the outlets are rated at 20 amps.

I purchased one as a gift for my significant other. Took FOOOOORRREEEEEVVEERRR to re-heat a cup of coffee. Manufacturer wouldn't accept it back so I repacked it and sold it on ebay and managed to break even.

I wouldn't recommend purchasing.

I don't understand what the purpose of this microwave is. Does it mean portable, like, on batteries to take camping ? Why would anyone want to take a microwave camping unless they are in a camper ? And if that isn't what it means, if it is just 12vdc, then why bother when most inverters will drive a small 100$us microwave that is available from any box store ?

Did you use the cigarette lighter connection, or did you connect it directly to the battery?

The device appears to have rather limited power when not connected to either the battery directly, via the jumper cables, or to AC. I've seen similar reports of it being underpowered, but it seems in all cases they were using the cigarette lighter cord.
