Hi All,
Am new to this forum and hoping someone can help with a problem on my Macbook Pro. I have purchased a pure sine wave 12VDC to 240 VAC power inverter to run in my boat. When i put the charging cable to my mac the mouse will not work(the trackpad mouse) I noticed the same problem with my iphone 5 it would not let me enter the passcode while it was on charge.. Any ideas..

Thanks in advance..

Sounds like some kind of weird grounding issue relating to the inverter.
