A little trip out to shoot some player profile pics, so lights, cameras & other paraphernalia all got loaded in to the poor old wagon. Must be nearly time to retire the old girl, 135k and 17 years old, yet still looks almost as good as the day it left the dealership

Another Warm One
Guildford City played another pre-season friendly last night, this time away to Godalming Town. Although an evening kick-off it was still warm. It also caused me to miss the Lionesses soundly beating Sweden to make through to the final.
In-Car Laptop Charger
I recently purchased a new in-car USB-C charger, and I have to report it is a complete success. I recharged the 13 MacBook Pro from about 45% to full, whilst using it to edit photos, in about 45 minutes. The charger got a little warm, but not enough to worry about. It will also charge a mobile phone as well, but as I have a dedicated power supply for my iPhone I haven’t needed to try it.
I purchased it here, it may be available cheaper elsewhere.
Damned Warm – Preseason
Preseason friendly football match on one of the hottest days of the year, like one of the hottest days for a few years. Played on what looked like grass, only browner. I don’t know about the players but it certainly tested my deodorant as well as my cardiac fitness. Lugging 30 kilos of kit from the car to a football pitch on the other side of a football pitch & a club house.
I actually felt sorry for the Ref, I know unusual for me, but being a ginger I imagine that he probably found it a little tough going.
New In-Car Charger
So in an update of the previous posting last month about a new in-car charger for the laptop, it would charge the laptop whilst it was off or sleeping, but not when in use, so upgraded to a 112 Watt USB-C & USB-A charger. It will provide 90w of charge through the USB-C port which should be ample for the 13″ MacBook Pro (The original Apple charger is rated at 61w) as well as a 18w of charge through the USB-A port.
Will give it a run out in the week as I have a football match to shoot and let you know how I get on with it.
