I use this inverter to power a small "boom-box" entertainment unit by Sony which only can use batteries or AC current. It can play AM/FM stereo radio, cassette, CD and has a aux input for a music player. The current draw is small and well within the PV150 specs. It rarely if ever gets the slightest bit warm to the touch during use. Has never run down the car's battery even leaving it on over several days. It, like virtually all other, Tripp-Lite products, are excellent, durable, well-designed and reliable.
I use this to power a Sangean Table Radio from my Jump Starter during a power failure as I like listening to the news reports. Just the right amount of power required and runs quiet (no fan noise). I would recommend this to any one. Nice and compact. Easy to use. Dependable product!
I've used other power strips over the years. Some would not last. I came across TRIPP•LITE products online in '05 when I got a new Mac. And a $20k lifetime insurance to boot. Never had a problem with TRIPP•LITE.
I bought the 150W PowerVerter Ultra-Compact Car Inverter to run my CPAP (breathing machine) while I am camping, and in case our power goes out at the house. It works perfectly for my needs. Other inverters that I've used are larger, bulkier and also have a noisy fan that runs whenever they were connected and turned on. This inverter is very compact and runs silently (no fan). My CPAP is rated at 90W so the inverter has plenty of power for what I need.
