Vehicle Power Port Mini-Inverter
While the Flyaway my be powered by a generator, it may also be
powered by an inexpensive 400 watt mini-inverter (price - $50) that
will plug into
your vehicle power port. The Flyaway pulls about 90 watts (150 max watts) of power
when in use. A standard car battery has about
45 amp hours, which would run the Toughsat for about 5 hours.
We recommend running the car
engine so that the car battery stays
charged. Otherwise, the battery will deplete and may become too
to start the engine.
(Product shown is Wagan EL2003-5 400 Watt Continuous Power Inverter)
A portable battery with Inverter may be a preferred "silent" solution.
On the left is a
12 volt 28 amp hour Duracell DPP 600HD Powerpack
(approximately $169 from Amazon.com) which will run the Toughsat
for 3.1 hours (90 watt draw
on 28 amp hours). On the right is the
Xantrex 802-1500 ($499 from Amazon.com) which will supply 51 amp
hours, which will power the Toughsat for 5.6 hours.
