Ok, My wife and I are both using Toshiba laptops which the brick has an output of 19Volts.

 

Question: does anyone know where I can get a cable to run to our laptops from the cigarette lighter? I have one of those adapters and it has a USB port on it.

 

my guess is, the car outputs 12volts. should I be able to allow my wife to hook her laptop up  to it? I understand there is a 7 volt difference. but should be be able to get by using her laptop when we take a road trip?

 

what if she sets the usage settings to powersaver?

Agreed, an inverter might be a simpler solution

Inverters are good for this, I have one that I've used in the past for my laptop and it worked well. Provides some good power to it and also doubles as a power port in case you need to power another device in the future. :)
