    Hey all

    i have a solio solar power supply, and was wondering if there is an attachment from the powerbook power supply to a cigarrette lighter plug. so...can i do it. I just purchased solios plug/tip for a female cigarrette lighter plug. and then i have a 150W portable power inverter with a male lighter plug..so...could i run the powerbook using the normal power supply plug..or the other way...or any combination would help!

    Let me know if this works out

    If you have a female connector for the solar charger then this adaptr should work:

    Check out the specs, and let me know if it looks like it would work because that would so rock my world for Burning Man and living in sunny Oakland CA!

    it looks like it would work...but....then again...it looks like it would defeat the purpose of a small portable power supply...i'd almost be better off with a third batt or someething
