Hi all, can I charge my laptop on board the boat? I believe there is a cigarette socket and I was wondering if that could be used for charging laptops and phones.
The boat has a 12 volt electrical system.

I'd go along with that.
If your boat has a 12V "cigar" socket, then it is the same as your car, so think like this.....
I am in my car, and I want to charge my laptop.

In the past I have used 12V DC to 240V AC to 20V DC arrangements - though now, I'd probably just use my IPAD on a 12V connection (and ignore the "Not Charging" warning.)

If you are in a hire boat, and it matters to you that the 12V socket works... then check it before you leave the boatyard.

In my car I use a cigar socket charger with double USB connections. As long as the engine is running I can top up two USB connected devices at the same time. Great for iPads, phones and SatNavs.
I will be using the same charger on the boat we are hiring this summer.

Tip
If hire boats are like hire cars, then the fuse is often blown, so check it out before leaving the hire base.

best regards, Richard.

Can't wait to be back on our boat on
the Broads.

Good suggestion. Does no harm to check before leaving (casting off?)
