I an a local company Driver that sits alot at docks. I want to bring my laptop to use during the down times. Is this something that's doable? I'd rather not wire to thr battery, takes too long to remove every day since I'm never in the same truck
I would say no since the inverter will pull more amps than the cb. I would look at one of those inverters they sell that plug into the cigarette lighter. That should supply enough juice to keep your laptop charged
Just buy one of those 400 watt inverters and some long decent guage aligator clips. Clip onto batterys in box or on some models the jump posts under the hood and then clip the inverter to those. Profit.
They charge off 12V and the bigger ones can give several extra hours to a modern laptop. Though if your using a gaming rig you will get at best 2 le 3 hours off a large one. I keep one in my truck for emergencys as it will power a heated blanket for hours for example.
