Good deal.

What could this realistically power?

So the advertised laptops, DVD players and hand-held games wouldn't work then?

I think laptops are around 60w, but best check on your equipment

I've got one that's rated at 75 W (not this model of course) and it runs an IBM Thinkpad just fine so this one should be fine for the average laptop.

Don't think this will power games consoles though which is a shame, great buy for a laptop though!

Great price as log as your cigarette lighter is in a good place.

I recently bought one for £16 from scan but its the same size as a can so it fits in the cars cup holder.

really interested in gettin one of these things for laptop, BUT a few doubts in my mid:

1. what happens if the power output isnt enough for lets say a laptop?
2. what are the chances that a device like this could cause damage to a cars electrics? (especially newer ones with push button start ignitions etc, this can be very costly as main dealer would probably have to fix the problem)

i would be very grateul if sumbody knowledgable could come forward and put my mind to rest!!!!!

With the laptop...
Its not going to damage it, it either wont power up, or will come up with a message that the power is too low.

With the car...
If the car is that new then the car will have features built into it to stop any damage that could occur... other than maybe a blown fuse which is no more than 50p.

thanks for the reply dude!!!

unavailable ?

No more available .... :-(

I got one of these (power devil) for about 7 quid in netto 2 years back, I use it in my Van to charge my Laptop, charge my Drill and Charge my phone. I have had no probs with it, mine will aslo power the nippers DVD player.

they usually only do about 100-200w but this one is only 80 watts. To … they usually only do about 100-200w but this one is only 80 watts. To give you an idea a kettle and a toaster are about 1000 watts each.



A kettle is more like 2000 to 3000 watts, this is fine for the average laptop, I would get one of these “it’s out of stock” for charging my mobile phone why I hear you ask? because I keep changing my phone & with this I can use the mains charger & not keep buying different car chargers. Lets me think I’m green:whistling:

Does anybody know a good price for a 1kW+ model, I want one to power a circular saw? I saw Maplin had some but they were painfully expensive.

]1kW model

]3kW model

Picked mine up instore today for £8. Thanks OP - great find.
