Tripp Lite PV150 Power Inverter

I completely forgot to post this. Before the Colorado trip I wanted a power inverter to power my phone so I could use it as a GPS without running down the battery. I also wanted it to have enough power to run my netbook, if necessary. I settled on the Tripp Lite PV150 for the following reasons:

  • 150 Watts is more than enough to power a netbook
  • Good reviews
  • Cigarettle adapter was connected via a cable, not directly to the inverter. This makes it easy to connect to the poorly placed lighter in my car’s arm console.
  • Under $30
  • Very compact
  • Switch to turn it on and off
  • And very importantly for me, no fan!

I ended up only using it to power my phone and didn’t have any problems. Highly recommended.

    OMG. Don’t tell your father about this. He’ll have to have one. We’re trying to downsize our clutter, not upsize it. (Is upsize a word?)
