I then just assume it will fluctuate a bit based on current voltage (air conditioner, etc). Not ALL cars put out 12v some put out less others put out a 14.4 v (which is really what the battery should put out) so this may change your current wattage out to that assumed rate.
The general thing to go off of is that it's 372w basically which the 350w car inverter will not support as per the threads title question.
Well the power factor on the Sager AC/Battery charger
must be very inefficient as it's rated to deliver only 220 watts.
I suppose there is real and appearent power to consider
on the ac side. I even run more than just the 9750 off
of the 400W inverter I have. By the way I made a mistake
in the brand of inverter I was using in a previous message.
I said it was a Colman it's actually a Vector.http://www.vectormfg.com/catalog/vec...rter-p-59.html
I even had two laptops running off of it but it's just barely
kicks in the alarm. Does the 98xx Intel Sager series
have a different supply adaptor? I suspect it might
consume more than the 9750 series to begin with.
