#12 of 14 115v outlet capacity?

Its long overdue accessory in a car but I can't find any data on the wattage capacity of the Sportwagen's 115v outlet. Anyone know? Will it run a laptop?

I would expect it to... I have had a little plug in INVERTER from 12 volt dc to 112 volt ac... works on my laptop fine and have used it for 14 years or so.

Yes, it was designed to run a laptop. However, be advised VW's charging system is NOT designed to maintain nor get your battery back up to 100% charged. When you combine that with the literal plethora of battery use items, (ie., sound system, GPS, radar detector, Ipod, battery recharging, etc etc.) it is almost a receipt for sooner than later battery failure. I would recommend a battery trickle charge (like Battery Tender Plus).
