So I'm living out of my truck now while I save some funds to by a houseboat in San Diego. I just bought a cheap inverter from walmart to run my laptop and I'm wondering what implications this has for my battery. I have an ACDelco silver line (30 month) that's about a year old and has never had excessive drainage. So I guess my question is what exactly is the excessive drain limit? I mean is there a minimum voltage I should keep in mind to avoid premature battery failure. Obviously I want to avoid a no start condition. What voltage could that occur at? I'm just charging my laptop with it (130w charger) and am assuming running it while the engine is off is fine for a while. I tried to google and youtube for some answers but was inundated with garbage results so hopefully this question is fine here. Any other inverter related advice that might not be obvious to consider would be appreciated too. And inverter recommendations. I'm pretty sure this is a modified sine wave (cheap, Everstart plus 400w), are the true sine wave models worth it?
My AT4 has a 400 watt inverter (stock) that is shared between the plug in the center console and a plug in the bed. It's nice to have the extra amps. Does anyone know the specs of this inverter? Is it a modified sine wave, or a pure sine wave inverter? I see the previous gen stock trucks with the option only had a modified sine wave 100 watt inverter. Thanks!
My 2018 GMC sierra has a 150 watt inviter. I've hear the newer trucks with the plug in the cab and the box have 400 watt inverters. Anyone try to upgrade or retrofit these inverters into an older truck? I'm looking for a little more power and so far this is how I want to go about it instead of installing a separate inverter.
