    any combination of items up to 700W
    but you will flatten your battery very quickly so unless you are driving a lot to recharge it be very very careful, after all if you are on hookup you will be running all those appliences from the mains won't you.

    Portable TV, digi box , laptop, etc .. anything up to a total of 700 watts, this is marked on the label of most appliances ..

    Bear in mind that on full load it will draw almost 60A from the battery .. so unless you have a big battery bank it won't last long ..

    Was there anything specific you had in mind ?

    Careful of the trap with microwave ovens. There is "cooking power" and there is "power consumption" and they are nothing like the same thing.

    A normal small microwave advertised as say 750W will actually drag way over 1000Watts from your inverter (or the mains). Standard advice is to use an inverter with a continuous power rating DOUBLE that of the cooking power rating of the oven.

    Unless you have a lot of battery capacity, don't expect to use it for much more than warming up your wheatabix on a cold morning

    True, but I did say small microwave, we run an old 600 watt unit and with the engine running to backup the battery at the time of use, this system has worked very well for us for many years without a hint of problems.

    Actually Doug, I thought I was answering boxerdog's post. Didn't look at the poster's name and I assumed that your post out of the blue was boxerdog123 replying to scotjimland's question

    - or have you joined under 2 different names.
