150W inverter should match with the input power to this TV. Check whether TV has any other faults.

What size of inverter do I need?


The correct size of inverter is an easy calculation and important to ensure long life from the inverter and the life of the appliances getting there power from the inverter. To calculate you take the volts and multiply by the amps which equals the wattage. Every appliance has a tag which must state the volts and amps. Locate the tag to find the information. Here is an example.

Under Counter Refrigerator 1.3 amps (120 volts x 1.3 amps = 156 watts)
Microwave (120 volts x 10 amps = 1200 watts)
Alarm Clock Radio (120 volts x .03 amps = 3.6watts)
TV (120 volts x .6 amps = 72 watts)

You now add all the watts together, since the above list could likely be running at the same time. There is a combine wattage of 1431.6 watts. In this example you would need at least a 1500 watt inverter. However given some unknown variables personally I would get a 2500 watt inverter. Less stress on the inverter, will lengthen the life of the inverter. Had the total been 1,000 watts a 1,500 watt inverter would suffice.

You must also remember that your alternator on your vehicle must be able to keep up with the power demand of not only your vehicle needs but your inverter needs as well.

I need to know what size power inverter in watts and if they come with a car lighter plug


You won't do it. An inverter will keep a compressor running at maybe 200 or 300 watts but it won't start it up.

My inverter keeps going to falt even though i only use it for a few seconds its only a few months old and has not been used mush its a 1000 2000 max


What are you trying to power with the inverter? Do you know how many watts your appliance need to run? Your 1000 watt inverter needs 83 amps from your battery to drive a 1000 Watt appliance. The minimum size wire you need to hook up the battery to the inverter is a size 6 as short as possible but no more than 25 ft.

Have an electric run pellet fire what size car or truck battery to run for 8 hours 520 watts


You'll need a 600W (Minimum) 12 to 240V Inverter as in the link below.

http://www.powerinverter.co.nz/16-10-12v-to-220v-power-inverter-600watts.html

As for the battery you will need 44Amps of Battery Power for every hour you want to run the equipment (this is without any losses from the inverter on inefficiency from the battery). You would therefore need as a minimum 2 x 200Ah 12V Batteries connected in parallel for something like your 8 hour duty. You'll also need them to be this sort of size so that they can supply the high current for a long duration. i.e. a 44Ah Battery would not supply 44Amps for 1 hour.

Hope this is OK and please leave feedback.

Cheers

Are you wanting to install circuit breakers on the DC (battery) side? If so, you won't need them to protect the unit as it is already fused. But, it would be a good idea to install them as close to the battery so that if a wiring fault develops in te cable going to the inverter, it would be protected as well.

For the AC side, breakers are sized according to the wire size, not the capacity of the inverter. But, you can always use a smaller size if you want to try and protect the inverter from overloads as well. Your inverter is rated at 1000 watts, which is a bit over 8 amps of AC current. Use a 10 amp circuit breaker, and don't use smaller than 16ga wire for short distances. Use larger guage wire (12ga is 20amp residential requirement, 14ga is 15amp residential requirement) for the longer runs.

This inverter is not designed for a permanent install, its not intended to be run continuously. There are inverters designed for this, you can find an idea of product selection at rv suppliers, alternative energy shops, etc.

I need to install my inverter 18 feet from my battery


a very thick one,,,like a baby battery lead on your car,,,its a very bad idear to have it so far away from the battery point, you would be far better off finding a closer place to put it as the volts drop off would have a big drop in out put on the inverter,,,also thats one big mother of a fridge to use 3000 watts????
you need a small power station to run it,,and if it do use 3000 watts your inverter is far to small to do the job, read the out put plate on the inverter,,it says 3000 watts max? not all the time,,,,thats about 2000 watts realy running contently and the whire to feed the inverter will need to carry about 30 amps so your car battery is say 90 amp hours plus the volts drop off, you would be lucky to have the inverter running for 3-4 hours before your battery go's is very flat on you!

Appropriate size inverter for sump pumps


First...you need to find the amperage on the pump...your inverter is rated for 6.25 Amps...(750/120)...you will need an inverter bigger then the pump..I would suggest at least 1.5 times the size of the pump..bear in mind,..the inverter wasnt designed to start motors...so oversizing is needed..

Hope this helps

I have aused 1500 watt inverter no cables. what size cables do i used and what size fuse do i need at the battery?


i would not go with less than a 4 gauge cable for the + and - . atleast run a 50 amp as if you were running a big stereo system. but, you might want to consider a circuit breaker.
