    external battery

    I'm looking an external battery that can be mounted on my TDX5 to run my laptop computer. I was using a dinner connection from my clean but I just got the PHC5 Peachtree head control system and it wasn't compatible with the direct connection. My laptop battery lasts about 3 hours. It's a Panasonic CF-51.

    what you are using now wasn't very clear above.
    Any 12v will do, see where /how much room you have, and put the largest you can and install a power inverter. Then just plug it in as you ordinarily would in 110v.
    I got a low cost inverter from ebay a few years ago and use it on trips in my truck. I take my laptop to download pics from my camera. You don't have to spend a fortune. You can get them at Wal Mart reasonable also. Just remember to charge the battery nightly after use.
    remember deep cycle you can discharge to a lower level, a standard 12v isn't made for deep discharge

    here is an APC battery I use for computer, ham radio, cordless drill, telescope and a few other things. They are cheap and last a loooong time. I've had this one since 2002 or so.

        I was using a wheelchair battery power adaptor that plugged directly into the wheelchair battery . The VA is paying for this.
