Intex car inverter charger full review

Intex had launched this multipurpose car inverter charger which can be used to convert car 12-14V DC battery power to 200V AC power. Now this can be used to plug in chargers of laptops/mac or if need be you can even plug in some light load appliances. This is one amazing device as one can gain benefit of charging laptop inside a moving car(dream come true right!). Apart from that there are some other charging features too. We did a complete review after using the product for a sufficient amount of time. So let us share our Intex car inverter charger full review.

What is an inverter?

Well in terms of electronics an inverter is something that converts direct current DC to alternating current AC. Our phones and laptops normally use chargers to convert AC to DC and then charge on DC power supply. Every car battery is a DC supply of around 12-14V that cannot be directly used to charge our laptops. Now using an inverter we will convert 12-14V DC to 200V AC and then use a charger to again convert it to suitable DC voltage of approx 19V in most cases. So in short apart from mobile charging, you can now charge your tablets and laptops while travelling in a car.

Intex Car Inverter Charger Full Review:

So Intex Car inverter DC-200 is a highly portable device and has a shape of small dustbin. Well it is shaped more like a cuboidal glass with tapering bottom. The reason behind this is you can easily place it in a glass holder which are already present in most of the cars. On the bottom there is a small fan which keeps the inverter cool enough to shed of some heat. Prolonged usage may lead the inverter to get a bit warm I would say. Also if you try to draw more current then also it will get warm but that is not something to worry about. There is a lid on top of the charger inside which are all the ports that you need. There is a standard 3 pin plug which gives output of around 200V AC when measured. Next there are two USB ports one with 2.4A written over it and other with a Auto range of 0-2.4A. There is not much of a difference as the current will be drawn based on your smartphone. These two usb ports can be used to charge your smartphones. Next you also have a cigaratte lighter slot in case you plan to use it or else you can again plug a car charger inside that. Now to turn things on/off we have a small white toggle switch and a indicator LED(power/fault). The design is great and the build is good too. You get a cable with car charger plug that goes into your car’s cigarrete lighter slot.


  • 3 Pin AC Plug for laptop chargers and other appliances
  • 2 USB 2.4A ports to charge smartphones
  • 1 car charger slot/cigarrete lighter

To get into some more technicalities, it is 200W rated with 250W max output and that can go up to 500W peak power. The USB ports are rated at 5V 3.4A rated.

Overall the device is a saviour for people like me who wish to carry their workstation inside a car. Your devices like laptop, smartphone, tablet charged along with some good internet is what you need to spend your life travelling in a car.  Never miss client’s call or  quick skype meeting if your laptop battery ran off. Also we tried powering Nvidia Jetson board with this and it worked pretty well. Just remember that you don’t plug in any heavy loads and even if you do it by mistake then there is a fuse and overcurrent protection on the inverter. The price of this device Intext DC-200 car inverter charger is around 2750 INR on Flipkart and Amazon. Let me know your views on this amazing car accessory and whether you will go for it or not in the comment section.


Intex launches Aqua 4.0, Aqua Crystal & Aqua Supreme+ smartphones

Intex has come out with a new series of smartphones that features 4G capability and some stylish designs. When we first got to have hands-on with the device, we were surprised too. Though the 4G feature is not something which is very new in the market. Intex launched total three smartphones which are Aqua 4.0, Aqua Crystal and Aqua Supreme+. All the smartphones are launched in the low-budget segment that is below 10k. Let us have a look at the features of all the three smartphones.

Intex Aqua 4.0 4G

Intex Aqua 4.0 comes with 4-inch amoled display(Yes you heard it right) having resolution of 360×640. The phone has a total thickness of 10.4 mm and is extremely light weight. It is powered by 1.3 GHz quad-core processor having SC9832A chipset. It has 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of ROM. You expand the memory using SD card up to 64 GB. For camera it has 2MP rear camera with VGA selfie camera. It has 1500 mAh removable battery.  Aqua 4.0 runs on the Android Marshmallow with stock android feel. The phone has 4G VoLTE support (Dual-SIM)and is priced for Rs. 4,199/- and is available in champagne, black and blue color variants. If you actually want to buy a 4G VoLTE phone in this price budget, then Intex Aqua is a good choice. Though I did not like the touch sensitivity of the device. The specs are ok considering this price budget, but I would say it is time that mobile phone brands upgrade the specifications for this range too.

Intex Aqua Crystal

Surprisingly the Intex Aqua Crystal has the best design of all. In fact I haven’t seen such a design in a phone having price this low.  When you first hold Aqua Crystal you will be unable to guess the price of the device. It is extremely light in weight. It has 5-inch HD IPS display and has a thickness of 8.3 mm. The device has glass panel on both the sides giving it a very good look. The rear glass panel makes it a bit slippery and a fingerprint magnet. Though the specifications of the device will not amaze you. It has 1.25 GHz 64-bit quad-core processor with MT6737 chipset. It has only 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of ROM. You can expand the memory up to 128 GB using micro SD card. The rear camera is of 8 MP while the front is of 5 MP. It packs a 2100 mAh battery. Again this device also has 4G VoLTE and dual SIM support. It also runs on Android Marshmallow.  Other special feature includes tap & buy – price comparison and the device comes with some new apps like LFTY, MiFon Security and Vistoso.The touch sensitivity was better on this device. The price of Intex Aqua Crystal is Rs. 6,990/- and is available in black and white variants. The specifications are not that impressive but the device has a premium look. So if you want a device solely based on looks and normal usage then this is a good choice. But if you want better camera and performance then you can go for other competitors like Redmi or Coolpad.

Intex Aqua Supreme+

Intex Aqua Supreme+ is the first multilingual 4G VoLTE smartphone which comes with Indus OS. It supports up to 9 languages with multiple regional keyboards. There is an app called Indus swipe which can convert english to various regional languages and vice-versa. Aqua Supreme+ boasts a 5 inch IPS HD display. It weighs only 133 g and you might feel that there is no battery inside. The device has overall thickness of 7.95 mm. It is powered by 1.3 GHz quad-core processor having MTK6737 chipset. As for the memory, it comes with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of ROM expandable up to 128 GB. Intex Aqua Supreme+ has a 13 MP rear camera and 5 MP front facing camera. The camera can take decent photos. Again this is a 4G VoLTE device that supports dual SIM. The Android version on this device is Marshmallow. It is powered by a 3000 mAh battery that can give you 6 hrs of talktime and 300 hrs of standby time. The phone is priced at Rs. 9,490 and is available in champagne and black color variants. It really has some impressive regional language support in the interface as well as keyboard. The specifications are again not that impressive but are good for normal users.

I would say that Intel could have given the exquisite design of Aqua crystal to Aqua Supreme+ and it would have been a great combo. Though we can say that Intex is trying to bring some design changes as well as regional language support to its new range of smartphones. Also connectivity is one of the important features on which Intex is focusing. Plus they have the traditional method of selling devices offline which is working out just great for theme. Also they have managed to capture the low budget segment of smartphones.
