I have at least 5 different laptops and as such each have a different connector. Any suggestions as to the best 12v kit to suit all...

I've had a couple of the cheapos fail - it doesn't matter much given the price but it would have been different if they'd taken the laptop with them. Although I prefer, and would normally recommend, direct 12v chargers, in your case I'd go for a small inverter. Despite often quoted concerns about using a pure sine wave type it really isn't important for a laptop so an inexpensive one will be fine. It used to matter when mains power supplies used transformers but all are now based on switched-mode technology and non-sine wave supplies have no effect.

Dave,
Just curious...why 5 laptops?
One for each weekday?
5 well, I have a small Gericom which I used when I was in Glasgow, I have a small HP which I inherited, the older Dell is now dual boot, the current Dell is awaiting a repair(power switch) and I have a new HP with Windows 8.1. So there you go, plus I have two desktops at home and a server. Besides the tablet and phones...
