Laptop powering idea bounce
Got an old laptop I thought I'd give this a go with.
Thoughts are to get a laptop car charger and hard wire it to the battery via a relay that'll only give power with the ignition. Laptop comes with a program to only charge it to 80% to help preserve it?
Is there any reason this shouldn't be done? Could hard wire a switch before the relay for the long journeys.
Now the next bit I couldn't find a definitive answer after a search.
Centrafuse can put the laptop into standby, where it still loads up in a few seconds by pressing the power button - great.
Pulse relay gets the computer on with the ignition, easy enough.
So does Centrafuse have a function to be able to put the laptop in standby mode automatically with an input and how do you give it that input?
