    Lilliput Power source needed

    Hey does anybody know where I can get ahold of the lighter adapter for a lilliput screen? For some reason mine blew when I first plugged it in. Since then the screen was running off of an inverter, but since I purchased my PW-120a and ITPS I don't want the inverter anymore.... so I have two options... hardwire the Lilliput... (which I'm not sure what I would need) or purchase a lighter adapter and connect another lighter plug hidden somewhere.

    Anyways... thanks in advance!!

    you can go to any store that sells ac adapters and get the one that has the multi plugs at the end. It lets you use one ac adapter with multiple devices and should have a knob to regulate the power from 3V to 12V
    Set it to 12V and find the plug that fits in the lillyput and your good to go, im using one right now.

    the adapter plugs that come with the ac adapter look like this

    you just have to find the one that fits the lillyput, the one i got had like 12 of these things, the more the better that way you know one should at least fit.

    R3load....just make sure you get a DC-DC adapter that handles 550mA. I just measured Lilly and she sucks a lot of current. Here's what I found

    Got a pic, R3Load? So you connect the DC-DC adapter straight to the lilliput?

    Unfortunately no I did not take any pictures of the install, but to give you a basic run down of how its hooked up, what I did was spliced another lighter recepticle into the existing lighter power, then I just went to radio shack and bough a DC-DC adapter that runs at 12V... plugged it in and it worked!!!... Granted I was thinking about hooking it up to my power supply of my pc, but I wasn't sure if I would be able to push enough V's w/ my PW-120... probably could. but thats more wires I have to run to the trunk, and they are already run for the most part!!
