I have a carputer that I have successfully installed in a car, but would like to be able to plug it in inside so that I can load software, make changes, etc. rather than trying to do so in my car. The only way I have been able to do this up to this point is by changing the power supply out every time I want to hook it up, which as you can guess is a huge pain.
Is there any adapter that you know of that I can hook directly from my carputer to a wall outlet so I don't have to change the power supply every time I want to hook it up inside?
I attached a picture so you can see the kind of plug that my carputer power supply has on it. Ideally I want something that will plug directly into that and turn directly into an AC plug so I can just plug the thing right into the wall.
Thank you very much for your help!

there is no purchase-able place to get one, but all of teh parts are available to make your own...
search for 8 pin molex connector, and sometimes, you might need to get the pins inside the connector as well.
hmmm alright well I have never done anything like this before, but I do appreciate the guidance. Are there any tutorials online you could point me to so I don't fry my system?
Thanks for the help...looks tough wish I could buy one
Someone manufacture one!
Do you have a spare regular pc power supply laying around?
I do, well sort of, but it's to a computer that I might use again, so I don't want to destroy it. I think I can get a cheap 300 Watt one Ebay for like 10-20 bucks though
I don't know what the best way to do this is.
I guess just get an extra power supply and a switch of some kind.
