Question about Black & Decker 200 Watt Power Inverter #PI200AB
I am in the car with no instructions (left them at home). How do I use the inverter to charge my laptop? It is plugged into the cig lighter and the light on top is yellow. It does not power my laptop. Does the batter have to charge?
Most inverters create a modified sine wave output, which is similar to, but not the same as the AC you get out of the wall. The power supply for many laptops (and most transformers in general) will not run with a modified sine wave input. There are devices available that skip the inverter and the power supply. They go directly from 12VDC to what your laptop needs.
