  • need 16V DC in car

    hello i just recieved a tablet PC that i intend to use as a car computer
    the tablet takes 16V DC input as power
    im just wondering if there is a simple way to get 16V off a car?
    my only guess would be to get an inverter in the powersupply use a transformer and then bridge back to DC

    are there stand alone power adapters for this or should i just go buy the standard 12V DC to 120V AC car inverter?

    i realize im going DC-AC-DC either way but a standalone solution would be nicer then the seperate inverter

    thanks

        yes there are numerous car adaptors available that'll give you 16 volts. I bought one just this week from Maplin (OK) for 25 notes.

            Regulated 12v is harder to come by than 16v!
