    Hey, i am in a real need of a car charger for my macbook pro, i know some ppl have posted something familiar to this, but they only got link to some boxes which u can plug ur normal charger into (if u know what i mean).
    but it looks like the socket dont even fit for my charger. i may have got my facts wrong, but anyways, i dont really want a box with a socket where i put my normal charger in, sounds to complicated, to messy. is there some mbp car charger (i have googled allot so i assume no) but is there something familiar, something easy like a normal car charger?

    thx.

    Nope - not that I know. Did Apple not patent the MagSafe connection so presumably only Apple could make a car-charger. Since Apple don't make a car-charger you will need some sort of invertor - what is the problem with them anyway ? I use one from time to time and they are really useful for charging cell-phones and iPods and stuff.

    k then, do u have any recommendations on a nice product, one that doesnt take to much energy from the car, just enough to keep my macbook running.
    many ppl r talking about watts and all that, and tbh i dont understand to much of that. what specs am i looking for? if thats what its called.

    The MBP power cord is an 85 watt adapter. You should get an inverter that is rated for some more than 85W. Find a nice 100W unit and tuck it under the glove box.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...E&N=2102830384+1245918584&name=Power+Inverter

    That store has such a great shipping and return policy that it doesn't hardly matter which brand you choose, youre guaranteed to end up with a well functioning unit.
