nope. you'll either need to get a inverter, or use a dc-dc power supply.
Hi, have searched forum and couldn't find an answer to this...
Is there a way to hook up the laptop powerbrick thing so that I don't need to buy an inverter?
Laptop runs off 11.4v and I'm planning to use the battery for power on / off so this would just be hardwiring it so that it charges when the engine is running... is this 11.4v dc? how would i check?
I know I could probably just use an inverter (thing that plugs into cigarette lighter that gives a normal power plug socket) but they are quite big and bulky and don't really want to accomodate one in my car...
sorry... it "was" a dell inspiron 1525...
then yes, that should work
Its all coming together nicely now!
Hardest part seems to be getting a reasonably priced screen!
