check this out...

The DC to DC Converters are Acer N35 PPC Power Units yielding 5.13v @ 600mA and are great at powering the USB 1.0 Hub with ONE
peripheral, in this case a heavily modified Linksys WUSB54G v4 Wifi Card. Note the cooling system in place on the card thats a 12v fan BTW, GND
is connected to the top of its USB Socket, the other fan wires are connected to the Jumper clip on the battery's +VE terminal. This is all required
as the DSP chip in the USB card burns out if its not fitted, below the fan is a large metal heatsink plonked on top of the DSP chip.

So, you can order the Acer Cigarette Lighter DC Power Adapter for the Acer N35 GPS Windows PPC Computer and this will happily
power an SL-C1000 from a 12v Lead Acid Cell. As you can see, I have 2 of them running the system: one for the Computer and one for the
Hub and Wifi card.

Have Fun !
