The overload protection is activated in my car even if I connect a device that uses less power than the maximum 90 W.
In some cars the engine must be on before you can draw full power via PowerCan. This is to avoid the car battery going flat.
The PowerCan gets very hot after a while.
It is very important that you do not cover the ventilation holes at the bottom and on the side. Although the PowerCan is designed to sit in a cup holder, there can be problems if the cup holder is closed at the bottom. If the cup holder has a closed design, the PowerCan should be positioned elsewhere in the vehicle. This is because converting electricity generates heat, which must be allowed to escape from the unit. Also make sure that the PowerCan is not covered by coats, blankets, cushions, etc.
The overload protection flashes red-green all the time when I connect a laptop with a 90 W power supply.
A power supply that provides 90 W to a computer typically takes over 100 W from the power socket. This means that the cut-off protection activates. The problem can be avoided in some cases, however, by turning on the PowerCan first before the power supply is connected. Once the green light comes on, connect the power supply.
