David... the solar panels are in Savannah, GA... I'm up here in Seattle... so the panels will not be installed on the dodger till I get the sailboat down there... but regarding the power it's 144 watts at 12v and it's very efficient at charging 2 banks of 12v batteries... I have two of these panels and looking forward to getting them installed.

Regarding the inverter... make sure it is a 'pure sine wave' type inverter... mine is a 2000 watt Prosine unit... very costly unit >$500... brought it some time back in Savannah and brought it up here with the cooktop... it works perfectly.

I'll take a picture of the unit tomorrow sometime... try to post it online...

Let us know how it works.?
What model are you using.
It will be interesting to know how many amps it draws.

Mine doesn't do all that, I have a multi-fuel version that also uses kerosene. Like I said, I like it, the only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't have a good surface on top so only works when your boat is very steady.

The only thing I don't like about these on a boat is that they can really only be used when the boat is steady, and they are best in a quiet little cove at anchor.

Bob... the induction cooktop is running on the slip power and with a switch to convert to inverter power from the batteries.... it is very efficient (98% efficient compared to any other form of cooking)...

Inprin... the old Origo stove was tossed in the garbage... not useful when it was replaced with the induction stove... didn't want to buy replacement parts for it... the induction stove is very cool to work on and clean... nothing like it... may even replace the electric stove at home for an induction cooktop surface!
