It works, the invertor should be at least a 300 watt. I have a gps system from Delorme and I installed it on my laptop as I drive all over the Northeast. I have a power strip plugged into the invertor and laptop and sometimes printer plugged into this. I do carry a battery pack in case I forget to shut things down overnight, as it will kill the battery running it that long without motor running. I think the printer is a lexmark G85 and has a battery with it and is a printer and scanner. -----Original Message----- From: trapper [mailto:trapper@xxxxxxx] Sent: Monday, February 24, 2003 7:58 PM To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [pcductape] Re: Advice Needed Actually a printer is as important to me as the computer..bush or not.. I have a set up that will convert the 12V battery to 110V . I am wondering if this will work ok... Guess I could run it outside and check it out... I really do need a high quality printing service..

As for powering a printer - that will use it up a lot. But you can work a laptop while it is connected to the wall - so there are no real problems with that , after all I doubt you are going to take a printer with you to the bush. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TTFN – Vic "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ _____ From: pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of trapper Sent: Monday, 24 February, 2003 07:00 To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx HI Bill..I am in search of the same information...Will be going Laptop this summer.
