power inverter ok to use on a macbook pro?

#1nehukogPosted 12/2/2013 10:33:58 AM
Looking for a car charger for a 13 inch macbook pro (fairly recent one about 3 years old) and was wondering if I could just go to best buy and get a 100w power inverter that lets you plug your wall adapter into it and you plug that into the car? Is it enough wattage or too much wattage for the macbook pro?

My friend uses that one for his Macbook, absolutely no issues.
That's more then enough wattage, and is sine-wave based.

I ended up going to bestbuy since I was short on time and really needed it, but I got a cyberpower 175w, 2.1 amp power inverter. Is that ok?

All the reviews seem good, lots of laptop people, so it should be fine.
