    I picked up a 12volt charger for my laptop as it charges at 19volts. No point taking 12 volts, upping it to 240 then dropping it to whatever your laptop charges at

    Have a look and see if you can do the same

    Have a search on ebay for dell car chargers. You'll probably need your charger adaptors spec too. Probably lieterally 100's of different laptop chargers around

    What type of dell is it? Some of the dell laptops dont like anything but an original and as far as i know dell never made a car charger.
