Charging a Chromebook...

Hope I've got this right...

If you require something to charge your Chromebook, when traveling in a vehicle, I've seen such available on the internet... The lead plugs into a vehicle cigarette lighter, then into the normal charging connector on the laptop...

There are a number of different appliances available... I just Googled: 'car chromebook c720 charger'....

My apologies, if I'm on the wrong track...

Therein lies the £64,000 dollar question: 'What might that be'???

You are on the right track. Although I must clarify, this is not so much for the car as it is for plugging into an outlet adapter that only has a USB port. So im looking for my computer charger, and instead of it having a normal plug on the end it has a usb plug to fit into a usb slot. You have reminded me, though, that I should get a car charger adapter, too.

Do you know what I mean?

USB to chromebook plug...

Think I've half an idea what you're looking for and I've found something that might be suitable, although I'm not sure what size plug there is on the end... Take a look at the picture and see what you think...



Let me know what you think... They're on a main web site, at £3.99... If it were me, at that price, I'd take a chance and get one... But that's up to you...

Re cable...

I've also sent you a private message... Look for and click on the small black envelope, to the right of your log in name, to open messages...

This is a replacement image... The earlier ones were inadvertently deleted... If it actually activates on the forum post this time, it will remain in situ for another three or four weeks...
