    hey,

    finally getting around to thinking about installing my CarPC - quick question:

    do i need anything between the ITPS and the car power supply (+12v wire taken from say cigar lighter) im not sure if the ITPS replaces Opus etc etc,

    can i just wire into car power system without an opus?

    ta guys,

    If you use an ITPS you also need some other type of DC-DC power unit. I'm not sure if you mean this by 'car power system'. An opus is just like a DC-DC power supply and and ITPS in one, but much better. Reports suggest that ITPS are unreliable. But you should have an inline fuse between the ITPS and the car's power supply.
