  • What else will I need? Please advise.

    Hi All,
    The carPC I am getting comes with this car adapter:

    Output Voltage +16V~24V
    Output Current 7A Max or 120W Max
    Input Voltage DC 11V~16V
    Input Current 12A Maximum
    Line Regulation 0.5% Maximum
    Load Regulation 5%
    Ripple & Noise 300mV Maximum
    Efficiency 88% Typical
    Temperature Coefficient 0.05%/_
    Over-Voltage Protection 28V Maximum

    My question: what else will I need to have this run successfully in the car? (Yes, I don't know much about power, sorry..that's why I'm here). If I add an ITPS (I'd like to add this for shutdown control), am I all set?

    Thanks much,
    Per

    it says max 12v in? id check because after crank it will jump i had an el cheapo inverter for my laptop and as soon as i cranked it it blew the fuse.in an older tuck. and you are saying that the adapter puts out 16v? i dont know if that is a good idea or not. id say not.

      Doesn't it say 11v-16v in? (not 12), and output voltage 16-24v (not 16?). Am I reading it wrong? If not - are those numbers any better / worse?
