    Powering a Laptop

    Is there any way to wire an opus or equivalent dc-dc ps to a laptop, bypassing the brick?

    Thanks in advance.

    Probably not. It would depend on what voltage your computer needs. If you look at the brick, it should say what the "output" is. If it is 12 or 5 volts, then yes, you can. However, I have found that most computer require 16 volts or more. Although, I believe Carnetix has a unit that puts out 19 volts or so, that might work. You might want to consider a DC-DC Laptop adapter, they are not expensive. Then just ad a SDC.

    Let us know.

    get a p1900 and ditch the opus. power your screen, computer, and usb hub all from the same psu with built in sdc. Run the internal ACPI jumper to your laptop power switch and you're in business.
