    Hello All

    Does the battery terminal Volts relatively remain constant? So is it safe to

    connect a PC PSU directly to the battery? (like a Morex 2677 casing with 12VDC input PSU) Can one connect it to the permanent

    (unswitched) power wires for the radio? The PSU is 60W but some cars radio power supply are only 5A? So what now? The idea is

    to have permanent power to the PC without the ignition.

    no. you are going to need a power regulator. id recommend looking into an opus if your computer isnt a major power hog.
