So I have a Dell XPS 17 laptop and I am going on a trip down to Florida (from Michigan) and I have been researching to see if I can purchase a car inverter to charge my laptop. The problem is that my laptop is such an energy hog that I don't know if they will work or not so I am looking for some help in finding one. The energy stats on my laptop are as follows: input: 100~240v, output: 19.5v. The problem comes I can find a inverter that has the input (i think) but the out put is what scars me as it seems most can't handle the problem.

Here is an inverter I found (http://www.amazon.com/Pyle-PNVR450-Watts-Inverter-Modified/dp/tech-data/B003OER1W4/ref=de_a_smtd) but could someone tell me if this could handle my computer and if not does anyone know of an inverter that can handle the laptop.

Thanks for the help!

The Dell AC adaptor is rated at 150W.

That inverter has a 115V +/- 5% at 200W.

You should be fine.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

OK, thanks!

But does any one have an opinion on if the one I selected from Amazon would work based on the supply supply needed?
