Very true. The process of voltage inversion isn't all that efficient. If power is an issue, go with the 12 volt appliances.

Also consider if you are going cruising elsewhere, that 12 volt appliances will be scarce in other parts of the world. If you stick with standard voltage appliances replacements will be easier to come by.
