NooB Question about powering a laptop using M2-ATX
I am planning to gear up my own Carputer using my old Acer Laptop.
I have been searching and reading a lot of forum posts for my question.
I found many people placing laptops for carpcs and they have excellent solutions for auto power up / shutdown.
From what all i have learned till now i have tried to put up a design to power my laptop, screen and devices
I will be using M2-ATX (instead of CarNetix 1900) incase my laptop dies and i have to switch to a PC.
Question i have is
When i power down Ignition of my car, the laptop will still be connected to the Car battery from M2-ATX. Thus laptop will continuously draw power from car battery to charge laptop battery. Wont it kill my car battery?
Or M2-ATX cuts the power to the laptop when ignition is cut off.
Consider me a total noob in powering :nerd:
Thanks a lot
