I doubt on the shuttle part, but if you got a laptop you get cigerette lighters or in some new fords (ford focus's etc) they have special power outlets, contact ford for cables!

There are power inverters that you could get. They convert the car's 12 volt DC to 110v AC. I'm trying to figure out a more effeicient way to do this, however, seeing as computers RUN off DC.

As for laptops, you don't really need a converter, or I didn't for an old one. If it's 12 volt DC, you should be able to plug it right into a cigaret lighter or off the battery. Don't try this without researching it though cause I don't know how different newer laptops are to my old 486 ;P
