Transformer to run laptop from 12v DC in a Caravan

  valbv 15:45 05 May 2007

Has anyone experience of running a laptop from the 12v DC available in a caravan when not on mains. My laptop is an Evesham M3000N. The input voltage from its mains tranformer is 19v 3.42A 65w. I am looking for a reliable transformer. Any recommendations please.

Or even an Inverter - 12V DC to 230V AC.

Screwfix do one for £21.99 click here;jsessionid=WK53AMY0KNVTICSTHZOSFFY?cId=A231857&ts=78244&id=43494

Could come in handy for other electricals when not using the computer as well.
