Didn't know such a thing existed. My laptop battery's not the best and this will solve it on the road thanks :-)

I bought a 12v car charger for my Dell, was only £14
great buy
Good spot OP
A further £1 off with code vc5 as well, and 4% TCB (may or may not track with code)
Sorry silly question alert!!

Does this have any impact at all on the car battery? I'm guessing it's only powered once car is switched on?

Sorry and thanks!
Awesome price, I paid more than this for a cheaper looking 150W inverter last summer.

Yes, this will drain the hell out of your battery if you don't have the engine running. It'll be ok to pump up a dinghy or airbed without flattening the battery, but if you're going to be running/charging a laptop from it you really want the engine running too.
It will work with the engine off (well...mine does, might depend on the car) but on mine there's an inbuilt fan, and the fan runs much faster when the engine is on.

You'll want to note the power requirements of the things you want to power. A laptop will be about 60W or 90W and clearly states the requirement. My hairdryer wouldn't run off my inverter so must be over 150W.

I'm no electrician so I guess what I'm really saying is "don't imagine you can run everything off one of these - there will be some things that plain won't work".
But still...they're ace...
Nice find
Many car 12v sockets are fused at 5A or lower. This provides a maximum.output of 60W before the fuse goes pop and your 12v socket stops working. Of course, the process of step-up voltage conversion also introduces some loss, so your 220/240v output could be limited to around 50W / 0.2A. This will not be enough to power most laptops.
Thanks OP. Had no reason to buy this at the moment but I have.

thanks bought with quidco cash back. Should be good for my charging my laptop.

In reality I have no use but it can live in the boot until I need it lol

you wont be drawing anything close to 175w from a car accessory socket, unless you've upgraded the wiring and fuses.

amp x volt = watts. so watts / volt = amps 175w @ 12v = 14.58amp, most cig lighter sockets are fused at 10amp so you can not run this at full tilt, Will let you charge a laptop and some other devices, but depends on the socket and what its fused at.
That's great. So I can now plug in my phone charger?

I can only add that if you for example ever wanted to play PS4 in your car, on let say 24inches screen, then you will need about 400W inverter
Out of stock but heat added anyway. Good price
For laptops you're better using a proper adapter. Laptops run off DC and car batteries are already DC. Usually a laptop power supply is converting AC to DC which generates a lot of heat, stepping DC voltage up and down is much more efficient. Converting to AC and then back to DC is going to be far less efficient. Same with mobile chargers, just use a USB adapter. Use this for things that really need an AC to operate.

Did u really try the hairdryer or is that a example hair dryers use a lot of energy the smallest ones I think are around 700w usually 2000w.
I really tried to run a hair dryer.
In in my defence, it wasn’t an emergency blow-dry, it was to take off the model badge at the back of my car by heating the glue.

I should have kept that to myself eh?

Depends on how your car is wired. Some are constant live some are ignition switched. Mines constant live. Does my head in 😁
