    I wanted to get one to plug some stuff into on the trail, camping, etc.
    Any idea on what brand or wattage to look for? Thanks.

    I have a 1000 watt inverter mounted under the pass seat. I love it. it will power most anything, 110v air compressor,drills saws, Lights, ect ,But best of all a Blender /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif. Hooo yeah! That reminds me.Its Margerita Time /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    This is what i have:northerntool.com invertor
    Heres a bunch more invertors FYINortherntool.com
    i recomend getting an inverter of at least around 800 watts to be useful.

    I bought a cobra 1000 watt from the flying-J truck stop for $200.00 with a $40.00 mail in rebate. Powers up everything so far.

    Statpower is a good brand. Made in Canada. eh. Have had mine for 10 years. Still works as advertised. I avoid stuff made in China when possible.
