    simply go here http://www.deluo.com/Merchant2/merch...tegory_Code=GA and buy that, then gut out adapter end and hardwire it too your dc system? maybe add a switch to prevent dead batteries? Lemme know why this would or wouldnt work thanks :P

    It's low power (only 100W) - you better hope your system doesn't use much juice.
    Other than that it's just an inverter, and it should work.

        It's just an ordinary inverter and nothing special about it but small size.
        You can get one for about the same price with much higher output and a little bigger than that. Go with the Xantrex Micro Power.

          It might work... but you'll need a much more powerful unit than that. I currently have a 350W Power inverter... and it seems still not to be enough especially in the cold. I am regretting investing the money in the power inverter rather than the DC-DC PSU. I plan on purchasing a DC-DC power supply soon because of the problems I've had w/ the inverter.

          I get a lot of noise because of the inverter!! So my opinion is don't waste your cash and invest it in a DC-DC
          New CarPC on the way again I think. I miss my old one!!!
