QUICK AND DIRTY INVERTER PROJECT

Recommended Posts

Our small 100 watt cigarette lighter inverter just wasn't quite hacking it. The laptop draws 1.67 amps of current when charging. The plug in inverter is only capable of aproximately .8 amps output. It was working, but it just wasn't rated at enough to work well. Another inverter was in order so we went to eBay and Amazon looking for something small that we could mount under the dinette without taking up too much space. Then there was the problem of not wanting to drill a hole. Here is how we gotter' done:

Located near the power panel for ease of hooking up to a seperately fused circuit, it is mounted to the dinette bench seat with 3M two sided tape. The front of the inverter has a push button on/off switch, and three indicator lights to advise of it's operating status. The top has a plug in cover to keep those toast crumbs from breakfast out.

The wires run under the gas detector located below the power panel, and through it's wire passage to the fuse panel.

No drilling or cutting, quickly mounted with 3M tape, yep, a quick and dirty project :o that has performed well in it's initial testing phase.
