Power Inverter In Your Car

For those of us on the go a power inverter is a fantastic thing to have. A power inverter allows you to operate your laptop or tablet from your vehicle. Inverters come in many different Power ranges. The particular type of power inverter I am discussing is designed to plug into your cigarette lighter.

Power Inverter For Your Cigarette Lighter Socket1

You can buy this Cyber Power, Inverter here.

The inverter that I am talking about is a 160 watt power inverter. It is designed to plug into your cigarette lighter and operate most laptops and tablets. It has a pivoting head so you can turn it where it's convenient. Whether your cigarette lighter is in your dashboard or your console, the head pivots.

Cyber Power Inverter

The Cyber power Inverter has a 110 volt plug for your tablet or laptop and a USB connector. If you're like me and "On The Go" constantly, it is very convenient to be able to operate your laptop from your vehicle without running the computer's battery down. These inverters are not designed to operate large appliances so you will not be able to run your coffee pot, microwave, a large compressor or any other item that requires a large amount of power. These inverters only provide approximately 160 watts of power.

In a post a few days ago I posted about attaching a power inverter to your vehicle to run lights and perhaps a few small appliances from your vehicle battery during a power outage. The reason I said to connect the inverter with the clamps directly to the battery was due to the limiting factor of the cigarette lighter in a vehicle. It can only provide approximately 150 to 160 watts of power. Anymore than that will blow the cars lighter fuse.

When I am out and about, I can stop at any place that has a public WiFi connection to upload large video files that I shoot for my YouTube channel "Survival Existence". Having my computer and the ability to use it anywhere is a great convenience.
