I would prefer to avoid an inverter. They're fairly bulky, & I've already got
too much garbage in my smallish car. A DC adapter is small, and means that I
don't need to crawl under my desk to unplug the AC adapter when I want to go
from home to the car... I did buy a one-hour battery charger this weekend
that, to my surprise, included a car adapter. But since the batteries are a
bit of a pain to change, I still prefer a car adapter if I can find one that
