Hi all.. I recently bought a HP DV5-1133tx laptop and am hoping to get a car charger for it.  Only thing is I've looked everywhere and can't find one!  Anyone had any luck with this sort of thing?  I'm hoping to find either a cigarette plug to a normal 3 prong power plug or a  cigarette to mickey mouse type plug that you find on notebook power adapters.  Smile  Thanks everyone!

Have a look at Jaycar (jaycar.co.nz) they tend to be pretty good for that kind of stuff.

I've had a look on Jaycar and can't seem to find what I'm after.  From what I understand I need a DC-DC converter but the cigarette plug doesn't actually output enough wattage for the rated wattage for my notebook (90W.  19V, 4.74A).  So I guess my next question is does it harm a notebook to charge it at a lower power level or will it just take longer to charge?
