    high power 12v

    Im about to add a bunch of 12v items in my car, and i was just wondering if there is anything to regulate my car's output to be 12v at about 60-100 amps

    some of the things going in include:
    carputer, of course
    new stereo
    laptop chargers
    300 watt inverter
    500 watt inverter
    etc...

    so i need a lot of power...

    any way to do this?

    whot do you think about discarging of yours battery ? when the engine is off state ??? and when it's on - what do you think about alternator( typicaly 60-90 A) - it's will be damaged! ???
    400Watt CarPC power supply for powerfull systems- thaks for Beta testers- it was perfect.

    Remember - AMD Athlon XP (socket A) powers from 5v rail in most times !

    the car came with a 60 amp alternator, and i'm about to put in a 160, so ill have plenty of power to deal with, and barely any power will be used while the car is off

    why do you need to regulate

    all the stuff you mentioned will regulate it internally

    Agreed, the only thing that needs to be regulated is possibly the CarPC, but you didn't state how that's being powered, so I couldn't tell you. If you're using a DC-DC power supply, then it does the regulation.

    The rest is designed to operate at Car's voltage, which is 14v while running. Especially the headunit.
