I disagree. In a power outage you are sol. Mine is battery operated with a key as back up. I have had it two years and I have replaced the batteries once just because I felt I should. And truthfully, I'm not even sure about a key backup because the kids can find the key, too. My safe was given to me by a friend who wasn't using it anymore. The key is in a lock box at the bank so I don't lose it.

That's just my opinion, though.

Mine has an accessory power cord that lugs into the wall, the battery acts as a back-up. The only improvement on this I would like would be to have a rechargeable battery that would power it for up to several weeks in the event of a power outage and also automatically recharge when the power comes back on. That system would be ideal.

While it's size is not ideal for a vehicle, it's strength (7ga steel) is something to consider. I could mount horizontally under the rear seat, but could not access from the drivers seat. I use only when I can't carry in somewhere or on long drives. I NEVER store a firearm in my vehicle.
