Keyboard skills – in the field

FOR farmers looking to run lap-top computers in the field an Oxfordshire-based firm has introduced an inverter which converts DC vehicle battery power into AC computer-usable power.

The PROwatt 150i inverter, from Merlin Equipment, measures 87 x 19 x 87mm (3.5 x 0.75 x 3.5in) and weighs 520g (18oz).

Safety features include overload, overheat, reverse input polarity and short circuit cut-outs. Price is £80 (01491-824333).
