    Portable Power Supply Needed

    Can anyone tell me where I can purchase a portable power supply kit?

    I will be soon taking a break in the bush, close to the Kruger Park, where there is no power available, and I need something that can keep my laptop going, charge my cellphone and camera batteries and other small devices.

    Ideally the system should have the facility to recharge from my car's cigarette lighter while I go on game drives, as I won't have access to AC power.

    Hi Neville,

    I have a small inverter - 100Watt that will work off your cigarette lighter and power up your laptop. It is a square wave output, but will not be a problem for your laptop power supply. It has a two pin european type socket, so if you have a 3 pin plug you may need to make a small extension cable which has a two pin plug and a 3 pin socket.
    Cost R285.00 Vat inclusive FOB Johannesburg
    Size 80 x 70 x 40mm weight approximately 300 grams
