Are you a coffee fiend who ventures far from their precious home espresso machine? Do you often stay in motels where coffee is more easily likened to dirty water, and half-way decent espresso is at least three towns away? Or maybe you like to camp, in which case you may be in for a long, hilly...

Richard Bucholtz aswered:My guess is that the outlet you have it plugged in to is not powered unless your car ignition is on. Also check to make sure that when you put the top back on that the lines are corectly lined up. There is a little troubleshooting brochure that comes in the box. See if there is any ideas there...

Wow! My harley has a 12V receptical, but a battery smaller than a car. Can I use this with my Harley? I'm concerned about the battery drain. How many watts does this consume per espresso?Answer on our Community →
techkathy aswered:Edward - Click on the link below for the manufacturers specifications. They list the unit at 140 Watts http://www.handpresso.com/produit-1-1-handpresso_auto_e_s_e_.html
DanielCulver aswered:Edward, the power requirement should be matched by your Harley easy enough; the real question is, can it provide that power long enough to complete the cycle of making your coffee and have enough left to start your bike? This is more difficult to answer. Manufacturers have been using increasingly...

Is there a 110 adaptor for using it in a hotel room.Answer on our Community →
mjackson aswered:Thomas, At this time it is only available with the car adapter.
Terry aswered:There are plenty of compact 110V to 12V adapters available - that's what I plan to do - check Amazon & just make sure you get one powerful enough for 140 Watts
paul aswered:Unfortunately, the nominal 11-12 amp draw is tough to find in a 110VAC-12VDC power supply. Even if a relatively-common 10A supply would work (possible), they are not particularly cheap (~$40+), portable (have an onboard cooling fan), nor ready (still need to add a car socket adapter). For hotel...
Frank aswered:Thomas, If you check the Handpresso.com website in UK you will see the have a 240v to 12v adapter. 240 v is what they use. So if well hound them enough, maybe they will make one for 110v. I have a touring bike - Goldwing I plan to use it on, but I also need it for the hotel. I usually go nuts...
Richard Bucholtz aswered:Thomas...I bought a Schumacher Model 1216 power converter at our local Farm and Fleet store and it works great. Only 2 pounds and not very big so very easy to carry. Here is a link to where I bought mine....
