How to charge your laptop in a car

A car battery usually is 12 Volts Direct Current (12V DC). A typical laptop charger is designed to input 220 Volts Alternative Current (220V AC). To make the laptop charger work with the a car battery, you’ll require a Power Inverter. Here’s my setup:

Not only you can now charge your laptop but you can power anything that you’d usually plug in your sockets at home e.g. classic light bulbs, electric shavers and so. However precaution should be taken to not deplete the car battery with excessive usage.

How much does Rs +2.40 per litre petrol actually cost? #Mauritius

Today, Gasoline is going to be sold at Rs 47.30 per litre incurring an increase of Rs 2.40 per litre. But how much will it cost me per month?

I drive on average 1100km per month commuting to work daily from Ebene to Curepipe and on weekends, family trips to the sea and malls. This makes around 78 litres of Gasoline per month.

When Gasonline was at Rs 44.90/litre, it would cost me Rs 3502/month (Rs 44.90 x 78). With the latest price increase, it becomes Rs 3689/month (Rs 47.30 x 78).

I’d be spending Rs 187 / month more at the fuel station as from now. We got Rs 360 as salarial compensation recently.

New Shock Absorbers on my VW Polo 1996

My left shock absorber was leaked most of its oil. When going over bumps and humps, I would feel the left side of my car bouncing over 2 seconds. This could be very dangerous on motorways.

 

Braking distance

Without good shock absorbers, the emergency braking distance is greatly increased at speed which is a bad thing.

Comfort

I must say the broken shocks were more comfortable to ride in. They allowed the springs to cushion out the road defects without hindrance. But security comes first. They had to be replaced.

Cost

The new 2 shocks costed me Rs 5300 (without installation fee). But they don’t come with dust covers so bought them at Rs 700 both.

The shocks are of brand “Optimal” model A-3859H. Haven’t seen lots of reviews for it on the internet. Let’s see how it fares.

I’d say Mauritius should, like other European countries remove the humps on our roads. They increase noise pollution, air pollution and causes spinal problems in elderly people. These are only few problems associated with them. How can we make the government of Mauritius do this?
