Inverters vary in quality.Originally Posted by ky_khor
Really, though. why an inverter for the laptop? Why not get a car adapter for the laptop instead? It will be more efficient than the inverter.
Tell him to wire the inverter directly to the battery with an inline fuse.2. i read somewhere that we can ask the mechanic to connect a direct line from battery to power inverter to reduce the risk of power surge. Can it be done? Waht should i tell the mechanic?
I think it's been done. Check the Show Off Your Project forum.3. so far any case or example of create a laptop mount on the dash board? (even if it's at the side passenger seat)
Heat should be less of an issue with a laptop, but it's something to consider.edit: new added question-
4. how can the carputer gone thru Summer extreme heat and Winter extreme cold?
Extreme cold can prevent the hard drive from spinning up, which means you're not booting until it warms up a bit.
Where do you live that it gets extremely hot AND extremely cold? Most locations typically get one or the other but not both....
