Hi the term inverter usually refers to changing DC to AC. AC to DC is usually the work of an "adapter" and I would be surprised if an adapter was not supplied with your laptop. Although cood adapters have constant output circuitry a surge protector is always a good idea when plugging into the main as electric storms can kill adapters and anything attached to it. Good surfing with your new laptop. Stewart
I am planning a road trip to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. To enhance my trip, I have ordered a Dell inspron 6000 and a blue tooth GPS. Plan on using the GPS for helping us map our trip and do some geocaching. I was thinking of getting a DC to AC inverter because Battery may not last very long?? (this is my first laptop) Is this a safe move?? I was going to use a surge protector with the inverter. Don?t want to damage my new laptop on its first trip.
Thanks for any ideas
