    going on my jollies - so an inverter is out as they weigh a tonne

    You will need to know what voltage your laptop requires and maplin do a DC to DC conveter which will go up to about 20 volts - BUT it will weigh almost as much a 12V to 240V invertere.

    All it will save you is the weight of one power block.


    I got an invertor from Sainsburys last year, its one of those 'can' ones - I'd say its a similar size and a tad ligther than a 500ml beer can. Not that big a deal in the car?!

    Wasn't there a thread about 80W 12/240V inverters for a fiver in Asda?

    Found these…ter
