    Better to use AC for lilli than the egg?

    Well im using an inverter to power my laptop in the car and was wondering since i have an open outlet, you think i should use the egg (DC) or the regular AC adapter for my lilliput? Any suggestions for using one over the other? Thanks guys (and gals )

    Use the egg. (by egg, I assume you're talking about the 12V lighter plug). The lcd uses 12V DC, so if you use an inverter, you're just wasting energy by converting your car's 12V supply to 110V AC power, then wasting more energy when the AC adapter converts it back to 12V.
