  nebuchan 23:19 29 Dec 2004

Im thinking about buying a AC power inverter from belkin (F5C400u140W or F5C400u300W) I was wandering whats peoples experience with them? I go on long jouneys to the continent by car, and i want passesengers to be able to use my laptop to watch dvds. Will the units be up for powering my laptop?

There are two different models, my laptop adaptor says it works on 135W, so the 140W model would surfice?

I have a Kingavon 300watt and works well with Laptop if run through the sig lighter it is only 150watt bit more than enough for a laptop. two sets of wires with mine one connects direst to battery and delivers full 300 and the sig one 150watt. bought mine on special from Makro £16 plus vat

A bit cheaper than buying a new lap battery every 2 to 3 years at £155
