You have to look at power consumption (watts) and purchase an invertor that has enough wattage to support. You also could install and additional battery in the vehicle and hook it up in parallel so you have more amps to support. You may have to have more then one invertor, however, that is fine also. As long as the printer is not a laser printer it should work. Laser's require quite a bit to power them. The tools are available to easily make a mobile office with the technology we have now, and it continues to improve and competition is keeping the prices realistic. -----Original Message----- From: trapper [mailto:trapper@xxxxxxx] Sent: Tuesday, February 25, 2003 2:30 AM To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [pcductape] Re: Advice Needed I got me one of those converters...trouble is I run to many things off of it now..have to keep unplugging something or other.. I am wondering if a laptop will power a full size printer..like my HP 1220c. I am going to have to plug that in..I don't think they make battery power for printers..do they??? I wonder if that converter I got will power the computer and the printer together.. I can see this is all heading me towards getting one of those huge buses that I swore I would never ever own..

You could charge with photo cells. I think transporting it would be the main problem, but it holds a lot more juice for the bucks.
