    when i checked the inverter it was 13.9v. The molex in a desktop is 12.0V. Will it be ok to have a power source that is 2 extra volts?

    Thank you very much jcdillin

    I'd check the specs & see what the unit is rated at. I agree it has a good regulator in it, but safer to check just in case. The specs should have "input Voltage" or something like that.

    Should the xmdirect 12volt be connected to a "always on" or ACC?

    doesnt really matter, only problem with connecting it to always-on is that you run the risk of draining your battery.
