why not add the convenience?

I'm far from an electronics person but the my first thought was that the inefficiency may be more in line with the

12V (battery)-inverter-120V-TV plug/transformer-12V

Still, there's no excuse for lousy customer service. They should do right and call you back with a remedy. If I were you, I'd say the delay is unacceptable, and be asking for a different model at...
