    Yes, that will work just fine in your cig lighter -- it will pull about 9-10 amps, and most lighters are fused for 20a or more. Suggest you limit the light bulb to a 75 watt. If it really performs as spec'd it should support a 100w bulb.

In order to produce 100 watts at 120 volts, the current will be 1.2 amps. But if you are producing that power from 12 volts input, the current will be at least 10 times the output current, and that would be at 100% efficiency, which is impossible to achieve, The efficiency could be assumed to be around 70% though, meaning that the current input required to produce 100 watts at the output would be somewhere around 13 amps. That's a lot of continuous power drawn from a cig. lighter, and the load might blow the fuse or breaker for that circuit.

SOURCE: cig. lighter and 2nd power slot for cord doesn't work,

It should be the fuse. They are located under the hood in the fuse box with the relays. you probably plugged something in that was faulty or needed to much power. the fuse is only a 10. i upped mine to a 20.

SOURCE: I attach my inverter with custom battery cables

please check the voltage of the battery may be the voltage of battery is low or use the multi meter and check DC volts before conneceting the battery and after conneceting once more check the DC volts it could slove the problem
the beeping sound is due to battery low voltage
what is the DC input of the Inverter check the battery hook up if the inverter is of example DC 24 volts please check what is the input

It should come with a DC or AC charging plug. All you have to do is plug it into either the 12v socket on your car, or your AC wall outlet, depending on which plug(s) you have.

I DO NOT HAVE THE POWER CHARGING CORDS... ONLY THEAIN PART OF THE LIGHT/INFLATOR . WHAT POWER SUPPLY CLORD IS USED?


On the side of the unit is a small black flap that covers two prongs that you can plug a standard 110-120 volt extension cord into which will charge the unit. There are 3 read lights and 1 green lights on the top that lets you know when it is fully charged. The 12 volt charging cord is basically a cord that has 2 cigarette lighter plugs. One plugs into the unit and the other plugs into a power port/cigarette lighter plug.

Trying to run a digital projector from a car battery


I looked at the power requirements of this projector, 280W, but that assumes a nice sine wave. Your inverted is supposed to put out 400W, but it's a modified sine wave. Under ideal conditions (including a good battery) this might be just enough. Connecting directly to the battery will help a little, because of the limited ability to get current to and through the cigarette lighter. Using a 100 foot extension cord will diminish the voltage a bit (less so if it's a heavy gage wire). I would try connecting the inverter directly to the battery, run the engine and skip the extension cord. If that works, turn off the engine. If that works, try the extension cord. If it won't work with the engine running, connected directly and no cord - there are two possibilities: (1) the projector just won't run on a modified sine wave, (2) you need a bigger inverter. --- regarding (1) I have seen lots of people having trouble with various devices. You might want to ask Epson support. --- Good luck!

I have a road pro rppi converter light links


It blinks because your computer is drawing too much current. Most of these give an exaggerated wattage range, and never give details about the true amperage available. the average laptop uses 3.0 to 4.X amps and is too much for these mini inverters. But they work fine on cell phone chargers.

Overloaded my inverter -now only works when hooked to car battery


It sounds like the fuse that protects you cigarette lighter is blown.

After you have replaced the fuse, check the voltage again. 0.015vdc would not have powered anything that in manufactured to operate on 12vdc.

When powering anything over about 250W, I would suggest connecting directly to the battery to avoid overloading the lighter circuit.
