gracias mi amigos
sorry, heres the link
..and i was wondering if this inverter will work for a computer and lcd...and if the car charging port will provide enough power to run the inverter....(you wouldnt have to attach it to the car battery , correct?)
yes that will work. Most lcds take dc power so the best thing to do is take the 12v dc power right from the PSU. On the other hand if you don't want to cut wires and worry about 12v and ground when just plug it in

Gonna need more info to answer your questions properly. If you are planning on drawing the full 400watts then you would most likely need it connect it to the battery as most cig lighters are only capable of supplying 150watts (some even less). Personally I would hook it to the battery as it is safer and a more reliable connection.
well, lets see more info.... my powersupply is 250watts, n im not sure what the monitor is....but if i connected it straigt to the battery, wouldnt the connections be loose? or become loose?....it doesnt seem like a secure connection to me.
You need to go down to your local auto shop and pick up a battery terminal. Use that to secure the positive line for the inverter to the battery (you will also need to buy some wire). Then connect the ground on the inverter to a point on the cars body. There should be a good few threads around that explain this in a bit more detail otherwise look at some tutorials on the net for installing a stereo amp.
Want good ground? Look for a bolt somewhere near your inverter's mount point that goes straight into the car's primary body or framework. It shouldn't be something crucial like a trunklid bolt though! If it's going to be in the cabin with you, maybe attaching a wire under a seat bolt would work nicely. If in the trunk, I have always had good luck finding a good ground by putting a screw through one of the raised spars on the backside of the rear quarter panel (found behind the interior trim panels in the sides of the trunk, or again, using an existing NON-PAINTED bolt somewhere in the same vicinity. Maybe even near the brake lights...Originally Posted by grahamrb

Yeah, I attached my ground to a bolt near my brake lights, works great.
