Re: 1500 W 12V Real Sine Wave Inverters?
That is scary. I have right now a size 24 house battery, may put another with it, or go with two 27's or golf carts to get about the same power or a bit more. Reality is, the 24 works fine. For me it would be christmas lights with the motor running, music if need be.......a power tool, but I have plenty of battery operated ones to not worry too much. LT can go on the 12V charger.....
The 1000 should do the trick if properly wired etc. I have a BIL that is/was an electrical engineer, Dodenja is across the slip from me, also an EE........figure I can get the wire part figured out easy enough, as the inverter will be with in 10' at most wire length from the battery(s). I know the 12V wire at 14 or 16 is way the heck tooo small for what I even hope to do! I'm not planning on much! I'm thinking at least a 10 if not an 8 or 6 from the battery pack. Wire is cheap! Got a new job the other day, so get a pretty good employee discount on this type of stuff.....so not worth the scrimping!
