    It will be okay, but I prefer Pure Sinewave.

    Here you go, Dave. Here is a larger inverter completely free of charge. Don't thank me.......it is all part of the service with "Help the Aged"*

    *one small flaw in that, isn't there? You are younger than me.......:blush:


    P.S. as above, it should be OK according to my brother who does this sort of thing

    I use a 200watt Sterling PSW for charging my MacBook.. .. A quasi sine way SHOULD be ok .. but I won't risk it damaging the power supply unit

    it's also used to charge camera batteries..

    However.. for a laptop probably better with a 12v converter that plugs into the ciggy socket.. they don't make an Apple approved one for Macs.. hence the inverter..

    I tried a "faux" sine wave inverter on mine (Samsung Ultrabook) - wouldn't charge.
    Bought a charger very similar to the one in the link provided by Snowbird - worked a treat

    It's not the size it's the output.
