Depending on the Dell, mine works well with a 100w "coke can" 12 > 240v inverter. However it over heats when the kids plug
their Dell laptops in. the difference is mine is a simple Vosto 1000 only requires 65w whilst the kids
Dells require 90w. the normal Dell mains chargers are different too, which is why the kids get told off if they use mine.
Dell and lots of other retailers offer 12 > 19.5v as already suggested so I picked up one off Amazon and now use this on the boat.
