If you want to live on 12 volts you need a hot link to this site:

12 Volt Appliance, 12 Volt Products, 12 Volt Portable Appliances - My 12 Volt Store

They have everything you might need.

Thanks Herk, I did some more research and also called Dell and they do not have a computer that runs directly on 12V with cigar type plug. I have learned you simply need a 12V charger to keep your laptop battery charged. I found this one on Amazon: Amazon.com: Targus Mobile Laptop Charger (DC) with Limited Two Year Warranty APD80US (Black): Computers & Accessories

I looked at the reviews and I would keep looking.
That one is stinky.

Also one of the answers said it only puts out 9 volts.
That is most likely incorrect but no one corrected him.
9 Volts would not work on my laptop.

One of the very first laptops we used at work had a cigar lighter cord to keep it charged up. I was at a pay phone taking orders sitting in my car and the thing must have shorted out and was on fire as I threw it out the window. I have never used another one. I'm sure they are perfectly fine now but you might want to watch out.

Dell makes one too. Mine even has the pretty blue led ring on the tip to show it has power. Never tried boondocking with my 6420 or m6800 to see how long the car batt lasts. Most of time it's for traveling so kids can use it.

Check out Amazon under Anker battery chargers. My son works for google and just sent me one it will charge cell phones or laptops batteries. It's like a battery jumper

Question 12 volt cooking

Has anyone found a 12 volt toaster or countertop oven that works good? How about a 12 volt hot air popcorn popper?

I don't think you are going to find an "OVEN". You will find some "re-heaters" that get up to 300F degrees. A 12V heating device that would reliably get to COOKING/BAKING temps would really require some heavy internal switches and circuitry. (The internal elements would require 10 times the current (amperage) handling that a 110 volt unit would. Very inefficient and potentially dangerous. You may find something, but make SURE you get some first hand reviews on it...
