I'm going on a road trip soon and want to be able to use an HP Pavilion dm3 1030us in the car (no, not while driving). I could get an HP Smart AC/Auto/Air adapter but it's coming up on the last minute. (I don't really want to buy a charger that costs ~20% of the computer's purchase price.)
I do have a DC->AC power inverter on hand, and I'm wondering if there are any possible dangers to the computer or the safety of those of us in the car if I plug the computer's charger into the inverter.
My dad expressed concerns over the inverter's output (he said something about it not being clean) but I'm looking for other information.
