The Project requires a inverter and maybe some power wire everything else you can use from around the house for the most part. Depending on what you want to run off this thing will factor in how much it will cost. The one i have installed can handle up to 800 watts. But if you do your math at peak power your drawing 67 amps from your battery/alternator but luckly it won;t draw such a load when your simply using a car charger or a smaller device. Here'* some inverters to choose from depending on your power needs you could jsut simply get a one for $27 dollars and for the most part run a small T.V or for $400 dollars and probably a new alternator you coudl run a washer, dryer, and a big screen T.V and still have power left over lol not sure on the wattages of those devices but you all get the point. Give me soem time and ill do a write up on how iset up mine here is a website that has the best prices ive seen so far http://www.dcacpowerinverters.com/12...inverters.html

So I think a small tv and my phone charger would be all that I would run...maybe my laptop when i get one....So I don't think I need something too spectacular.....maybe like an 800 watt one like yours?

prolly dont even need 400 watts for those. i think a 200 watt would more then suit your needs though.

Ya in our snowy areas if it snows real bad and we go off the road and now one can find us for days, we could have a microwave and a box of ramen noodles and a few jugs of water. Then the other plug you could have for the space heater lol.
Dude, I LOVE ramen noodles. I could eat them breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
