Everyone at one time or
another has taken a device into a car that needed a charge, but which needed
household AC current to power the charger (such as a Laptop or Notebook PC).
Some of you may want to use small power tools such as a drill or a small
soldering iron. Fortunately, there is an inexpensive solution to this "it's
gonna' happen one day" (that you'll need AC power out in the woods or in a
remote location) problem. The solution is a DC to AC Inverter. These come in
several sizes from 150 Watts to 800 Watts or better. For anything smaller than a
hair dryer or curling iron, 400 Watts should do ya', and that is the capacity I
chose when I bought my Inverter from
Harbor Freight Tools.
I mounted the Inverter on the
passenger side of my
which is a custom modification done to an
bracket (you need the Overhead Console to mount
the Radio Crossbar to).
