    Hi,

    Does anyone run a blender (handheld or otherwise) on an inverter? Can you recommend one? My partner and I make a healthy smoothie every day for breakfast and would like to be able to do this while on the road.

    Thanks

    Thanks. So from research, any blender less than 300 watts should be ok? We add nuts to the smoothie so need something that is at least slightly powerful.

    I make soup with my 160w with my blender from the inverter. Its only on for a few seconds.
    It's a 300w inverter.

    My maths says a 300w blender, hand or proper one.. Will take about 25amps. But as it only runs for a min or two thats about an amp... So no massive drain on the battery.. But you need a good sized inverter and wired direct from the battery. One that plugs into a cigarette socket will be no good..

    A BLENDER !!???!!

    Chew thoroughly and spit into a bowl

    Repeat several times until you have sufficient quantity

    This way you enjoy it twice without wasting lekky

    Huh! Beginners, who'd 'ave 'em.

    or a good battery one or even a hand one. I ordered one that you pull a rip cord to spin the blades but its not arrived in time and was only £8 so most likely not good.

    Keep looking but you won't find one....12v won't give you enough torque unless you make smoothie from plain yoghurt with nowt in it.

    Beware... some of my low wattage kitchen appliances need a pure sinewave inverter to run and some don't...

    Just saying...

    I'd happily have one but can't find any!
    I should've said we don't have an inverter just 12v sockets. Looking for a battery driven or rechargeable ideally
