Hello. Sure you can get an adapter cord that plugs into your cigarette lighter socket at one end and into the socket where your regular computer adapter connects to the laptop. However, I prefer, and use a small inverter that plugs into the lighter socket and turns it into a regular 115V domestic type socket. this not only allows you to charge your battery using yourlaptop's mains adapter, but allows you to use the Inverter for other types of domestic voltage devices.
If you decide to go this route see that you get a converter with a wattage rating high enough for the highest wattage device you are likely to plug into it.
If on the other hand you decide to go with the conventional lighter socket to laptop cord, I advise you to go to Walmarts rather than an electronics store as you will be able to get a generic adapter for a fraction of the price of the proprietory brands that the places like Circuit City usually carry. Best regards and a happy holiday. Stewart.
