Would it be ok to just chop off the lighter plug adapter for my laptop car adapter and wire it directly to the power going into my headunit? I'm not the most electronically inclined and wasn't sure if the headunit+laptop be would be too much on that particular line. The laptop draws 3.6A @ 16v. Are there better options? I'm trying to avoid running a line directly from the battery if at all possible and would like to have power going to the laptop only when the car is running or when the key is turned. I chose the headunit power line just because I know where it is and would have easy access to to it. Any help would be appreciated...
