Re: Power inverter,12V power socket, What is going on?

Why not just get a car cord for your laptop?

Currently you are using 12v-DC car battery- converting to 110 a/c with an unnecessary inverter, then you are converting back to DC for your laptop with the power converter on its cord.

Go on-line and buy a car cord for your laptop. They are all over Ebay for $20- just use car cord gateway and pick one out.
