Powering car from a 13.8V power supply ok?
For a ham radio my grandpa gave me an old power supply he found at a flea market or something, it says it is an astron rs-20M (http://www.labx.com/v2/spiderdealer2...m?LVid=3058432) and puts out 13.8 volts DC at 500 watts, and has a 5 AMP fuse.
I (will) have a m2-atx power supply powering my compy in the car soon, and I was wondering if I tied this into the car if I could power the computer for extended periods off of house power rather than off of the car battery. Will it dammage anything? I would imagine it would just charge the car battery and power everything, but I am no expert at these kind of things.
