    Car Charger?
    Does anyone know where I could buy a car charger for my macbook pro?

    I'm going up to vermont this weekend and I don't want to loose power halfway through the trip.

    Help is appreciated!

    Radioshack sells power adapters that allow you to plug in most electronics through a socket like you would at home. I don't know if the MBP would be too taxing on that or not. I'd be interested in knowing what alternatives there are to this also.

    I have a little 95 watt inverter i got at target for 20 bucks. plugs into the cigarette lighter and has a standard electrical outlet on it. I even ran a 50 foot extension cord off of it to run my dsl modem and my laptop a few years ago when we had 3 hurricanes and about 3 weeks without power. I think the MacBook Pro only pulls around 85 watts of power max, so there is more than enough. Looks similar to this one but this has more juice.

    I know Acehardware sells them in Indonesia but I had a 1.000Watts one installed in my car( PascalPower) about 20x15x8cm. We can have fresh coffee during the trip! We did not try the washing mashine yet!:-)
