    I've run my shop vac off it. It works for a bit, then quits and I have to reset the switch to get it going again. Easier to run an extension cord to a wall outlet.

    Not yet, too new...
    Today, I will cook a hot dog by electrocution with the Taco inverter. Will measure current, time to cook, and temp., just for the fun of it. The person who guesses the current closest will win a shorted fuse of the current value of his/her choice. I will post the results tomorrow at this same time. So start guessing. The person who closest guesses the max. temp. before catching fire will win an empty refillable extinguisher.

    When I first got my truck and started camping more often, i used the inverter for a coffee grinder and a electric kettle. As time moved along, i decreased the amount of kit I carry and so now i use a manual grinder and biol water on my camp stove instead. Thats all ive ever plugged in to the inverter. If it were in the cab, I would probably use it more often to charge stuff while we drive....

    Like others, I mostly charge batteries while driving (100W mode) but did run a 7-1/4”circular saw to cut some redwood fence posts (4x4, two passes to make each cut) with no problem. I recently got a cordless circular saw ... best tool ever! FWIW, the idea of the inverter and outlet seemed really cool when I got the truck but in reality I’ve used it maybe half a dozen times.

    Well I just got back from camping and I used the outlet for airing up a large queen size air mattress with a built in air compressor/vacuum and a small blender (250w) for making breakfast smoothies. :bananadance: Thus far it is working well

    It will, mine pulls 350w when burning the glow plug in the beginning but goes down to 50w to run the auger and fan once the fire is established.
