Re: Need Help - 12 volt tv or 110 volt tv?

I like the concept of a smart tv. Blue tooth from other sources and good tv signal from air. I'm happy with my LG and it can talk to wireless portable speakers Never worried about lack of inverter 110 .I suppose if it were a problem you could dig out the Kobo.

I get the concept of using a dc-dc converter to change the 12v to match the voltage required by the tv...but how does one make sure that the power is nice an clean? From what I understand, tvs don like the noisy power made by converters and inverters too.

I suspect that the tv's internal step down power supply is buffered enough to take care of a modified square wave inverter's indiscretions. I run everything thru a good quality surge bar anyway because it automaticaly turns to shore source when dockside.
