    This us probably a thick question but I thought I would treat myself today now I have a lovely rebuilt internally van I found a 20" Cello with DVD player for 80 on questioning the man as to why it was reduced he said the box is missing so I purchased it rude not to at that price. My question is can I get a cigarette lighter plug thingy and run it direct from 12v this is a picture of what is written on the adapter thing

    Yes.

    You need the same sized barrel plug as the one on the end of the mains adaptor, and to make sure the polarity is the same, ie the positive is in the centre.

    The 12v in a van can be anything up to around 14v for a fully charged van battery, so there is a slight risk of supplying too high a voltage. For that reason, I have a separate 12v regulated supply in my van that I just use for the TV, but it'll probably work without a problem.

    Yes you can Annie I got the same telly and got a connector from Amazon for about 12.
    It needs to have a voltage stabiliser so you don't get spikes. Mine is in my van but I will have a look tomorrow and let you know what type it is.

    Thanks gang and yes Big wully you can still say merry Xmas, I half knew I could but sometimes you just need confirmation that what you think you can do is correct so thanks again morphology Haamster and Big Wully.

    I run a Cello TV (although not a 20 inch) straight from the 12v supply the only issue has ever been when 'someone' boiled a kettle under it for three days it was picture no sound (from the TV not from me!) but it eventually dried out and has been faultless since.

    For peace of mind you could get a 12v voltage stabilizer but if you consider that your domestic mains is permitted to be 220v +/- 10% I wouldnt bother.

    Also you might be surprised at what the actual voltage is at your "12v supply" it might be 14v at the battery but by the time its been through a few metres of wire a couple of not so great connectors and a very dodgy 12v plug it will be a lot less
