  • Is this possible? Please help

    Hi all
    I have one mini itx pc based in a via epia cl1000, the case has an external AC adaptor 12v/5a, and the internal psu has 60w.
    I wanted to know if its possible to conect an inverter to the car lighter and power both a Xarnac 7" touchscreen and my mini PC.
    If its possible can you guys advice me in a inverter? Id like to connect to the lighter plug because IM AN *** in electronics so I wanted to keep it simple and also because the car is brand new and didnt want to mess all the interior.
    is there an inverter with two plugs? can I use an power divisor?(I dont know the name of it, Im Portuguese but I mean that thing that we put on a plug to connect two plugs..)
    Well thanks a lot for your help and your time
    Great forum by the way, the only prob to me is that sometimes I dont understand some terms and electronic stuff names

          some higher powered inverters come with multiple outlets. My local Wal Mart carries one at 700 Watts with 3 outlets.
          If at first you don't succeed, so much for skydiving!
