    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.

    So for our next camping trip I am thinking I will find an old low watt projector and plug it in for desert canyon movie night! Anyone out there tried a projector?

    Left a full head of hair in a park. Used a Wahl hair clipper in the outlet to leave 1/8" cut.

    I use it on weekends for my electric cooler (stupid it has to go 12V-120V-12V...)

    Now looking to put direct 12V in the bed to plug it without 1- the power brick and 2- needing to push the dash button, plus always on mode.

    I wish it would stay on after the ignition/accy is turned off for a brief period of time, or it would remember it's last setting and turn back on after turning the engine off and back on.

    This is legit! Curious as to how you wired everything... Do you have a write-up by chance?

    No quality write up for this one. Just cut some holes and ran some wire.
