    Yes, I completely agree. My battery, however, was completely charged. Also, I have a very good power inverter which has overload protection. It starts making beeping noises at >150W and turns itself off at >175W according to the user manual + there's a fuse along the sig. lighter's wire too in my car (not that I'm putting my hopes on it).

    Overall I'm very mindful of things like that and I have some good experience in electronics, but I also think it is very thoughtful and kind of you making these remarks about dangers of overloading car's DC. I've seen some car's wiring short and catch on fire before.


    Also, a while ago I borrowed a Kill-A-Watt unit to measure all my computers' power consumption (just curiosity). Unfortunately I've lost the spreadsheet that I've made for all my computers, but I remember that my laptop was definitely <100W while not playing and was 165-170 W while running Furmark (just like you said). I haven't tested the wattage while charging battery though...

    I think this is "normal", my old Gateway FX7811 has the same problem, but it still lives.

    I don't hear a clicking noise.. its more of a whirring one like the fans in the fridge.
