    Go on to e-bay,

    In search box enter:

    12 dc charger for (enter details of the unit including model)

    You should find a load to choose from, and not expensive. May have a cigar plug on but that can be changed if necessary

    I bought a 12v convertor for my lappy from maplins which I'm sure would work for your router. Cig lighter input and multi interchangeable outputs
