Electron beam Ion Trap (EBIT) devices are reviewed with special attention to applications in highly charged ion plasma research. EBIT properties are presented based on information extracted from a variety of experiments presented in the literature. Topics discussed include typical Debye length, Wigner-Seitz radius, Coulomb coupling parameter, Brillouin radius, magnetic trapping mode, ion cloud shape, density, temperature, rotation, and evaporative cooling. We conclude that the quantitative understanding of highly charged ion plasmas inside an EBIT requires improved modeling and advanced diagnostic techniques.
