Does anyone have any Tips on the best way to Power a Shuttle in the Boot..
I'm also using the same computer
I have a shuttle Sn45G, and im looking to mount it in the boot of my suzuki swift, but how?
I was thinking of using sticky velcro stuff to the bottom of the shuttle that will stick to the boot floor. Hopefully cushioning some of the blows and still keeping it in place. Is this insane?
I can help you on that one.
It's best to be using a DC-DC power supply because your car is running on electricity at 12 volts.
So if you use one of those inverters you can get, it would change 12v cig lighter to 240v and then your standard PSU would change it back down to 12v. Very inefficient apparently and not suitable for the job.
Im gonna be using an M2 ATX. Available on the store here i think. I sourced one in the UK for about £44 delivered. Does mean you need to wire it in directly to the car tho, so you need volt meters and crimpers etc etc.
And you wouldn't want to use the cigarette lighter port for something that could draw that much current. It's a fire hazard in the making.
hmmmm, My parcel shelf is to small to do something like that I'm sure. I'd have to cutom build the shelf and mount it sideways... thanks for the idea
