    Erm.... :confused: Libraries, Starbucks, Panera, local coffee shops (although some of them are sometimes pissy about this).

    For that matter, go for any inverter rated at >85 W.... this connects to the cigarette-style charger ports and then provides a three-prong (or whatever) household-style plug. And you can plug in whatever you want into it. :)
