i.e. can I just stick an adaptor on my my current 110V sealer and end up in the same place? I wonder because going up and down in the voltage makes a big difference:

Hi vtsailguy, I'm not sure I understand your question. I'm sure you can always run your existing sealer via a DC to AC inverter. Probably not the most efficient way to do it, but I'm sure it would work. The one I bought uses a direct DC power connector (standard 12-volt plug), drawing 6.3 A. It also has an AC connection.

I don't know how it is wired internally. Perhaps that info is available through Foodsaver.
Why go fast, when you can go slow.
