netbook pwr supply
have an Asus netbook I use for navagation on my boat. I dropped the original pwr supply in the bilge so bought an after market replacement unit which caused noticeable radio interference with my VHF radio. Anyway it recently quit working.
My question is since the output of this unit is 12V and my boat has nominal 12V power do I even need the power converter. My concern is that when the engine is running the voltage is up to 14V.
Connecting it up would be dead simple using the existing jack and matching polarities and there would be no requirement for an inverter.
