    That opening is the AC end. To power that you need an AC source. In a car that means an inverter. To power an inverter on when the car starts you need some fancy wiring.

    If you look at the dc end, you can find out the amperage and voltage it is outputing and buy a good DC-DC for it.

    And as a side, did you shove that between your legs to take a picture with a horrible camera phone?! :tear:

        Toaster-man already made a recomendation, and a rather good one.
        You don't like the price point of that recommendation, though.
        Don't know what else to tell ya.
        Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
        How about the Wiki?
