  • Power inverter question

    Hi,
    Sorry if it's been posted before,but would a 200W(400W MAX) be enough to power the basic computer system?

    Cheers

    depends

    read the FAQ
    youll need to know the requirements for each rail. for your setup
    for example your 200w might be 180w on the 12v (15A) and 15w on the 5v (3A) with 5w on the 3.3v

        then that depends on you power supply for 2 things


        1. that the inverter can supply enough juice for the power supply

        2. that yu powersupply can work with a modifed sine wave

        for instance i have a 300w inverter in the car it can power my external HDs but cant power my laptop due to the sne wave. so if i wan to do anything away from home with the laptop i need to plug into the ciggy lighter or use my petrol genny
