    Like all other DC inverters in this price range, this unit produces a square wave output. Sensitive electronic devices may not be happy using this power source, and the instructions that come with the inverter were written by a lawyer: The liability for incompatibility is all yours and none of theirs.

    True sine wave inverters of this capacity are priced in multiple hundreds of dollars, just so you know.

    I got this device to recharge my laptop, a Sony Vaio with a power brick in the line cord. I measured the no-load output of the brick using both power from the mains and when attached to the inverter, and output was identical. There was an insignificant AC voltage component when first measured, and it quickly went to zero. Like I said, it was the same for both power sources. The Sony brick is rated for 100-240 VAC 50/60 Hz input, a broad range, so I figure it should be able to accomodate the non-sine input. (But, what do I know?)

    My laptop pulls just over 50 watts at the mains when operating and charging at the same time, and about 18 watts when charging only. It takes around 4 hours to recharge the battery, but when it is finished, the current draw drops off to nothing. Isn't 20W about what the parking lights on my car draw? Would my car start after leaving the parking lights on for four hours?

    When running the laptop at full load, the inverter immediately starts buzzing alarmingly when drawing from the tiny battery of my Miata, when the engine is off. With the bigger battery of my Camry, It complains much less, but it still whimpers a bit. Engine-on solves the problem on both cars.

    I'm 13. last year, we had to dive to Maine from Virginia. I had an idea. we had this old TV that was small, and you could plug a Play Station in it. it plugged into the car. I was happy when i realized that you needed something to power the Playstation, too. I looked on amazon and got this four days before the trip. I prayed it would get here on time. It came in three days and worked fine the hole trip.
