    used it for camping for a stove and charge some shit and a compressor. also at the beach when me girl's phone died and for a blowdrier. it comes in handy every now and then. didn't think i would ever use it when i first got the truck.

    In all fairness I hooked my dremel up to it one night when I had to do something and couldn't find an extension cord to hook it into the garage.

    Nobody noticed my funny. One thing though it will run is a Herman Nelson heater. The small ones. The problem with those is you have to have power for the fan. No fan, no flame. If you can get the fan running you can get the heater running. They come usually the small ones are multi fuel and can run on anything for kerosene to Jet A. They put out tons of heat and could heat the entire truck up to about 100 F in -60 below in about ten minuets of running. That is the problem with those heaters is where to plug it in for the fan to work. The ultimate use for that plug in cold climates be it working outside on some frozen solid thing or supplying heat.

    Just the small sized ones will work. I've seen them pretty small multi fuel ones around but don't know who exactly makes them.

    I found it, 170,000 BTU 1/5th horsepower, no problem running it on that plug.

    Halogen lights when we were tackling a bet problem. I plugged a dewalt miter in it tonight but didnt attempt to cut anything. Initial draw was too much so it took a bit for blade to get up to speed.

    I know it sounds trivial, but a coffee machine easily can suck down 1000 Watts or more. I believe it's only rated to deliver 400W.

    I know I've used it but for the life of me I can't remember. I even asked my wife... her response was the inflatable mattress when we went camping. Wrong. That thing used the cigarette lighter. Sorry I give up, BUT I have used it. Maybe for my dremel while working on my truck for something.
