I have been using a IBM T22 laptop with the IBM ThinkPad Docking station, IBM part number 2631-10U in my car to provide the connectivity and power for my carputer. I am powering this off of a 140Watt power inverter. This works just fine, but when I added in a new XM radio receiver that draws an additional 12W, I get an indicator that I am pulling over the peak watts ont he inverter.
My question is since the original T22 shipped with a 72W power inverter, I figure the docking station would use close this plus a little more to power the extra bays and the PCI slot (which I am not using.)
Does any one have a good reference or idea what the actual power usage in Watts is for this docking station. I searched high and low with google and on IBM's support site, but nothing is there. It just states the general input power requirements of 110/220v.
Thanks in advance.
