I am going to go with the best type of way to power this would to be with the
power supply, it works well.
Ok I have my hands on a Dell Small Form Factor SX270. It is a Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz.. I have decided to try and fit this into my truck, but I dont know what type of power conversion I should use. Right now where it sits on my Desk it has a AC adapter
Model # ADP-150BB
Input 100-240V~1.8A 50-60Hz
Output 12V -- 12.5A
What is the best way of supplying power to this box ? BTW my truck is a F150 Supercrew.
LOL .. thx for the help ... I am searching .. Just asking for suggestions ...
Is it one of the ultra small 1? or just the mini?
Ultra Small I think is a DC unit as the mini is an AC unit.
You can tell cause the Ultra has 1 of those blocks power cord while the mini uses regular PC cords.
DC unit, I think you can get away with one of those cig adapter. Just make sure all the numbers are right.
DC...inverter......................or............. .......get an opus and stuff it in there.
It is the ultra small one cause it has the AC adapter built into the cord. My main concern is power up and shutdown. I dont want to fry the box and of course since it will be running windows I want it to run as smooth as possible.
I guess after I find the correct way to power my unit, I am also looking for ideas on how everyone set theirs up. I mean when you shut off the car does the unit just get killed? That cant be good...
