It just arrived, and so far I am incredibly impressed. I've had sealers in the past. This one works way better, seems well made, and the 12-volt plug makes it perfect for our boat. My only concern is the sheer size. It is fairly large, but I'm sure we'll find a good storage space for it.

Re: Vacuum Sealing Gear and Supplies

Post a pic? Or a link to an online item? I am curious to see it.

Here's the version I just bought:

FoodSaver® GameSaver® Silver at FoodSaver.com.

Although I went through Amazon, and got it a lot cheaper.

I tried to purchase directly through both Foodsaver.com and Foodsaver.ca websites (I'm Canadian), but neither sites responded to an email I sent. Despite the apparent poor customer service, I'm still very impressed with the sealer ... so far.

Re: Vacuum Sealing Gear and Supplies

hrrmmmmm....

Is it "native" 12V or is the adaptor a transformer?

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.

"direct DC power connector"

Yes, that's what I was wondering.....

Thanks!
