Can you use the 12V output of the generator to drive a perfect sine wave inverter? Not sure of the current needed but the generator I have is rated at 8.something amps. That's pushing 100W and more if the 12V is really 13.8 as it should be. about driving a battery charger, driving a high amp/hour battery, driving a perfect sine wave inverter, driving your TV? I can see where this is going so I think I'll just kick back on the front porch with a rum and coke, if it's summer, and inside by the fireplace if it's winter. I still have an old battery operated radio for news and music, but where did I put the batteries???
