I just bought a new 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe. It has a 110 volt- 150 watt
inverter. I can't think of many uses for it. Other than a trouble
light, what else is it good for?
Hank <~~~knows 150 watts isn't much
might be enough to run a laptop, but I prefer to use an AC/DC adapter
for that. I bought one for about $100 with a whole mess of different
tips so I can use it with most popular laptops. Also have a Dell
specific one somewhere, but I think it is only 90W so it wouldn't work
with my old Precision M90 which was a power hungry beastie.
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
I stand corrected. Even an electric drill to drive a small pump would
consume too much electricity.
How much electricity do the chargers for cordless power tools use?
Could you charge a saw or drill from it?
I just looked at the bottom label on one of my chargers and it
lists power input 115 volts AC at 12 watts. Look at the label
on your charger or power supply and see if it lists watts, if
not, watts = volts x current. The manufacturer may use different
voltages anywhere from 100 to 230 volts AC for a universal type
power supply and it may list current for both high and low voltage
input. A little math will tell you if it will work or not.
I ran a P166 class PC in my car for an MP3 player for many years on a
small inverter like that running DOS and MPXPLAY. I still have not
found a commercially made MP3 player with as user friendly interface.
I am at an impasse right now because I can't find any more socket 7
boards and newer machines can't handle the heat.
