Hi all..
We know you can charge stuff via the ciggy lighter socket, but can you charge a notebook with the mains plug using the on board tv socket while your on the move ?.

can't see it being a problem if it can power a television should easy do that, check with the boat yard might be your best bet.

On boats that I have been on that have an invertor there has been one or two standard 240v sockets which I have used to charge a laptop.

Sun Emblem which I have hired for Tuesday next week has a 240v mains inverter system with battery charger to power up to 1200w appliances.  I am expecting/hoping for one or two standard 240v sockets Cheers

Kind Regards

Clearly the best place to ask is the hire boat company, as not all boats are the same.
Some boats have a domestic TV which are powered from a small inverter, these are just adequate to supply the TV.
Other boats are fully wired for 240 volts, that is used to run kettles, microwaves, electric hobs etc, so they will have a very large inverter.
A lap top can take quite a bit of power, especially if the battery is low.

For our notebook, I bought a car adapter, 12 volts to a varied switched output including 19 volts. It came with various adapters.
These can be bought from Maplin etc, but the one I bought was from Aldi a few years ago.
They don't like running on low voltage, if the wiring is poor, or the battery is weak, the car adapters work harder and can overheat... as I found with my unit. Not an item to walk away from, or leave on overnight.
They have the advantage that they also work in the car, but  may take the full 10 amps from the cigar socket, maybe more.

We have that many adapters these days, I'm glad phones can now be charged from USB's so you only need one 12 volt to USB and just cables to suit.

We also have camera battery chargers, a PMR radio charger, VHF radio charger, GPS charger, more cables than underwear lol...
