Subject: Re: Auto-Startup of Archos Studio...
From: sophana (jobarjo78_at_yahoo.fr)
Date: 2004-06-14


There are 2 levels of protection:
first you don't directly connect your archos to the car power, 14.5v is
too much, so you need an external voltage regulator
second there is a second voltage regulator inside the archos.
