    I would like to power my laptop computer or a small 9" TV/DVD combo unit in my minivan for road trips, which make/model power inverter would you suggest?
    I would like the inverter to have dual outputs incase I have reason to power more then one item at a time.

    I have found three major brands...
    Vector, TrippLite and Portawattz.

    Any of these better than the other?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    get a 12v adapter for your laptop [​IMG]
    do you already have the TV/VCR combo? Some of those probably run on 12vdc?
