Mac mini draining battery
Ive been working on installing a mac mini in my car (2000 Volvo S70) for a few months now (Build details here), and now that Ive finally got it finished, Im having problems with it draining my battery.
I hoped that the mac's power consumption during sleep mode would be small enough that this would not be a problem, or that the power supply's (carnetix cnx-p1900) low voltage protection would keep it from draining the battery - but no such luck.
I'm sure that other people on this forum have had this issue and I was just wondering what you recommend.
Ive seen some mention of a second battery - but that seems a little excessive, and I wouldnt even know where to start
The other solution that comes to mind is the newer carnetix supply, the 2140, with the adjustable low battery threshold.
What would you guys suggest?
