connecting OPUS 260W DCX6 power cord
I have to do short-term installation in a car of a car PC equipped with OPUS DCX6 power supply. Because it is a short-term installation on rental car I was thinking of maybe using power from the cigarette lighter outlets in the car. Some cars has outlet that delivers 12V all the time - even when the car is turned off. I thought to connect to power cord to this outlet instead to the car battery. Most cars has an additional outlet that is on only when the ignition switch it ON. I though to connect that outlet to the Ignition Switch signal wire of the OPUS power supply. Does anyone finds a flaw in this kind of installation. Does the common cigarette lighter outlet should withstand such a usage ?
