Yes, it is a piece of cake, just cut the wire to the TV (after the transformer) and wire a 12 volt cigarette plug and you are done. Make sure the positive lead is in the center.
I have an Insignia TV recommended here on the forum and did the conversion. I also purchased a spare cord with the wall wort so I can use the TV both ways.
