    12v ones are pants mate. Is your car quite bad mate? I did mine today using a rotary on the roof and bonnet but did the rest by hand. I also have a polisher I bought from screwfix, which tbh mate I much prefer to use.
    This is the one I have and it does a pretty good job tbh. Best is its not likely to burn through the paint work and its cheap, worst its not very powerful and the pad is pretty huge. Thats the one you get at screwfix, sure its about £20.

    Don't waste your money, either use a DA/Rotary, or by hand - those 'buffers' are not worth the money, better off doing it by hand and spend the money on some polish/wax.
