Let's face it; using an in-car charger for your laptop needs more consideration than using it for a cell phone. Laptops are costly and contain storage and information you do not want to miss. A laptop can also come useful just for the journey, if you are going to a place unknown to you or simply taking a road trip. The GPS and mapping features or Google search can help you find directions and information right in the car with a laptop. An in-car charger comes handy more times than you think it might, on your way to work, during business trips and on holidays, when you want to keep your laptop charged. Most car chargers that are compatible with laptops are also compatible with other devices like mobile phones, iPods, cameras and gaming device. These are called universal car chargers.
Getting a power supply that plugs into the car's cigarette lighter is easier than finding a car charger that fits your laptop according to system requirements. This way you can get an AC adapter to use on it and charge your laptop. The power charger should be able to support your laptop's power requirements. For example the multi-purpose charger by PowerStar comes with a car charger connector, you can plug into the lighter port and charge most of the portable devices you carry with you. It's compatible with a large number of mobile phones, digital cameras, portable gaming consoles, iPod, MP3/MP4 players, Sat Nav, PDAs and Bluetooth headsets and can itself be recharged using several power sources like mains, car and USB power. It holds with itself one year of standby charge, duo charging where the charger and your device can be charged at the same time, a power level checker, discharge option and lightweight compact design that makes it easy to carry when you move around.
The laptop travel charger from PowerStar is a universal adaptor to draw power from the car for your laptop. It has a wide range of voltage options compatible with your laptop requirements. The output voltage is automatically set by the charger. In-car chargers are common today as many people travel and do business on the go. Portable devices are meant to be carried with you and if they are not charged and ready to be used, there will be no point in such devices. Convenient in-car chargers allow you to avoid that problem by taking power along with your laptop or mobile phone. Make sure to buy an in-car charger that your laptop is safe with so you do not have to wait till it gets charged at home or panic when it signals low battery.
