TV off a Battery?

5 posts in this topic

Can you run a tv off of a marine battery or is there to much draw and should I just go get a Generator? Thanks for the help!

it depends on the size of tv and if its 12 volt or 120. If its a normal tv you use in your home then you will need something to convert the 12 VDC to 120 VAC. IT will also depend on how long/often you plan on running your tv. Also remember that come Feb you will need a Converter box or a Digital Tv.

Get a small LCD TV made for an RV or kitchen or otherwise has a 12v input. "eyebjim" here runs a small (8" or so) under-cabinet LCD, directTV satellite, and XM satellite radio and some lights all weekend on 2 or 3 group 27s. I've fished with him enuff to know.

Get yourself an inverter large enough to handle the draw, which typically isn't much. Run time will depend on your battery. Just remember that the inverter will add about 10-20% to the TV amp draw through the conversion process.

I ran a 19" TV for a while last year in the fish house and had the underwater running to it. That was FUN! You'd see a massive fish on the screen, catch it, and it would end up being a 4" sunny grin It does help you see more detail over the standard camera screen.

Now, I'm running a 400 watt inverter to power a CRT 13" TV/DVD combo. Sometimes I have to hit the power on the TV a few times to turn it on, but once on, it works great.

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Shouldn't be hard to come up with a way to fill a 1/4 inch gap, it seems to me.   Rip some strips of something, maybe even that synthetic decking, trex or something.    Then you could have the vinyl

    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
