Carnetix Power to Laptop Wiring?
Well, I just got my Carnetix P1900 yesterday and finished reading the manual. I also looked on these forums to find info on hooking it up to my laptop (Gateway NX500) but I'm confused as to the proper way of doing it. It looks like some people spliced the Carnetix wires into their laptop adapters while other people opened up their laptops and directly soldered the Carnetix wires to the internal circuitry of the laptop. I don't really understand the way it should be done. I do have the adapter that came with the laptop...it's a standard 2 piece adapter with the big brick part in the middle. On the back of the brick, it says INPUT: 100-240V 1.6A 50-60Hz and the output voltage is 19V...so how does this work if I am only supplying 12V from my car battery? Do i need to splice the wires somewhere past the brick part of the adapter?
