I just bought a MW Compact Intelligent charger for my friend, and thought of buying one for myself too. However, I prefer the Multi Intelligent model, just that this model comes without the car adaptor. May I know where to get the adaptor? How much would it costs? Can I go to car accessory shop and use any adaptor that can fit in? Any concern of voltage/ampere? Thanks.

I believe you can use any 12Volts car adaptor. Make sure it is 12Volts and the current should be equal to or exceed the adaptor current (that comes with the charger)

I uses a DC-AC convertor so that I can use any of the 220VAC devices in the car, for example I dont need to buy a HP car charger, the one that comes with the HP will do. And the rating are much higher than 12VDC car adapter which at most can accomodate 1A only.

Hi Darr,
I am interested in this DC/AC convertor. May I know how much does it costs, and can it be bought easily? Thanks.

Readily available at Sim Lim Tower, there are different models. I bought a 100W (the smallest available). Cant rem the exact price, about 50+. Look at the top floors.

Look carefully though, some are 24VDC to 220VAC convertor, though very rare.

:)
