Your Airplane/Auto Power Adapter
airplane and automobile adapter allows you to plug your Gateway Solo
notebook into the industry-standard EmPower in-seat power receptacles
now available on major airlines or into any available cigarette lighter
in a car, boat, or RV. You can also recharge your notebook batteries
Avoid placing the adapter in direct sunlight or next to heat-sensitive materials.
To connect to an airplane's EmPower jack:
- Make sure the output cable is plugged into the adapter body and then plug the output cable into your notebook power connector.
- Remove the cigarette lighter adapter portion by depressing the button on the side of the input cable while pulling the lighter adapter off.
- When you hear the announcement that the EmPower system is available, insert the connector into the EmPower power jack on your seat.
The light on the adapter housing illuminates.
To connect to a cigarette lighter socket:
- Turn your vehicle's ignition on or to the "Accessory" position. (In some vehicles, the cigarette lighter socket always has power.)
- Plug the adapter's output cable into your notebook power connector.
- Remove the vehicle's cigarette lighter and insert the adapter's cigarette lighter connector into the socket.
The light on the adapter illuminates. If it does not illuminate, check to
see if the plug is properly inserted and that the vehicle's ignition is on
or turned to "Accessory." Also check the vehicle's cigarette lighter fuse
and the fuse in the adapter's cigarette lighter plug.
