Is this power inverter safe for my MBP?

    The MBP power adapter can draw up to 85W, so that might be a bit underpowered.

    I own this one. Larger, but works very well. Sadly, a bit pricey.

    Edit: this looks like it would do the trick!

    Ah, thanks jsw! 150 watts will definitely do the trick but I read somewhere that it is safer to get a inverter with watts closer to the needs of a MBP (85 watts). True or false folks?

    False, just get an inverter with a higher power rating then the adapter you are going to use.
