    If you've got a cigarette type power lead specifically for your laptop it will plug straight in. The socket can only supply 10A (120W) so as long as your laptop pulls no more then that then you'll be fine.

    I have a Belkin AC Anywhere Power Inverter 300W DC behind my seat. When I need to work in the car and the battery is low I just plug my laptop in. I brought mine in Argos when i needed it desperatley one day when my battery had gone. Product code is F5C400u300W and about £45. I highly recommend this unit.


    Running out of power is a thing of the past with the AC Anywhere. Simply plug the unit into any 12-volt DC vehicle cigarette lighter socket and the AC Anywhere converts your vehicle’s battery power to 230 volts AC (common household current). The AC Anywhere is perfect for charging batteries for your mobile phone, portable computer, electric shaver, TV/VCR, or virtually any device while travelling. The AC Anywhere inverter features a convenient On/Off switch and fuse protection along with an audible alarm that sounds if the vehicle battery voltage drops to 10.6 volts DC.

    I've got exactly the same thing as well willco! - although I think it's the lower power one. I couldn't see the point in getting the 300W one when the socket will only provide 10A/120W. Tucks away in a cubby hole in the boot for those 'just in case' moments!
