5V car charger for Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-11IBY?

How can I charge my 100S in the car?

The Lenovo AC charger puts out DC 5V 4A, and I can't find any DC 12V to DC 5V 4A adaptors.

 

  • Could I use a 2A USB phone car charger, with a USB to 3.5mm barrel jack cable, and trickle charge it with the laptop turned off?
  • I'd rather not use an inverter, but if I have to, could I use a cheap modified sine wave 150w (300w max) inverter? Or will this shorten the lifespan of the Lenovo AC charger?
  • Or as a last resort, do I use a 12V > 5V DC buck converter to make my own adaptor?

 

Thanks.
