Subject: Re: Car power adapter
From: Mitsu Hadeishi (mitsu_at_ministryofthought.com)

In general the most useful solution for this and other car power
applications is to buy an AC power inverter. Can get these at most stereo
stores, Radio Shack, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc. for around
$50. Basically this gives you an AC outlet in your car. Then just use
your regular AC power adapter for your Archos (or any other device you
happen to have that needs AC).

It's a bit wasteful (translating from DC to AC then back to DC) but it
saves having to buy all these special-purpose car power adapters for
everything.
