Re: iPad Charging - 12V vs. Inverter
Laptops, especially older models, can be real energy hogs... There are 12V adapters for nearly every laptop made. iGo, Lind Electronics and Targus are some of the better brands..
Indeed... running my 10 yr old Toshiba through an inverter runs as much as a fridge - and a 100% duty cycle!.
