    What uses more power ? Or last the longest ?

    A/ 14" crt tv ( old style )

    or;

    B/ 15" tft monitor ( slim style )

    I will also be using a normal small type freeview box, with a normal motorhome type directional aerial.

    I will be using it through a 600watt inverter from a single 85ah battery.
    ( Until i buy the second battery and a 1kw genny for backup purposes only of course )

    You can get 12 volt freeview boxes (I was never very lucky with Freeview away though:cry:)

    Are not most TFT screen 12 volt anyway so should use less power, am I wrong?

    CRT tv around 80w

    LCD tv around 35w +much better quality picture AND it should last longer.
    for a few quid more i'd go for a lcd tv with freeview built-in. less hastle and less wires.
