Flyaway Power Options

Vehicle Power Port Mini-Inverter

Vehicle 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 weak to start the engine.
