    Easy question for most of you..

    I have the morex case and I also purchased the m1-atx power supply.

    1. I am using the stock power supply right now. Can I just get a cig. lighter adapter that fits the back of the case and use that to power the PC until I put in and wire up the m1-atx?

    2. Is there and easy way to wire the m1-atx up that still allows you to remove the PC from the car with ease? Some sort of quick disconnects? It seems you have to hard wire the m1-atx to the car and its obviously mounted inside the case.

    Thanks in advance.

    Most adapters change the 12V to between 15-20V for laptops. You may find it difficult to find a 12v-12v adapter. do not plug it directly into your car supply because it needs to be regulated.
