Default what's it called and where can I buy if possible




Hi everyone!!

Here is my question... first I don't know the proper name for it.


On our cruiser's we all have the three plug holes to plug in a cigarette lighter or a cell phone charger two located in the front 1 in the rear. I want to plug in an appliance in the rear like a blender for when I tailgate, do they make an adaptor or converter(or what ever it's called) for a regular plug so it can be pluged into the car? and where can I possibly buy one?

Thanks to anyone who can help

Trish

Inverter...converts 12 volt DC to 110 volt AC.

Here's one place, I'm sure there's thousands of others...

You have to know how many watts your appliance draws as there's different prices for higher wattage (75w 110w or 150w).

Yup, just watch the rating:
"Pick a 75, 110 or 150-watt model to match your electronic device’s power requirements"
The blender or whatever ought to say how many amps it takes - multiply the amps by 110 and that'll give you a safe wattage rating.
If you run a TV or something, too many watts for too long could drain your battery...
I got one for kids to use with A/C adaper for CD pllayers to save feeding them batteries....
Yeah, I was taking DC, making it A/C and back to DC - but as long as engine's running the quiet was worth it instead of hearing "my batteries are dying"...

Wal-Mart has good inverters cheap. They're great!

I just got the highest watt rating they had for a T.V., and anything less draws less power.



(They were standard equipment on some early 70's Toyota's. The outlet was inside of the glove box.)

Interesting! I was just looking at those this weekend. Saw one at Walmart (as suggested above by zzzhuh) by Black and Decker.

There's another option for you. I have seen blenders that are DC powered just for what you want to use it for. Get one of those and you won't need an inverter.
