    power inverter

    i have a hp e-pc computer and a datalux screen (10.4") and i wanted to know which power inverter would do best, like how many watts would it have to be. i already have a 400 watt inverter/ 800 watt peak, would that be enough? Could someone help me out. I'm going out of town and i would really like to use it on my trip.

    that should be plenty. Most PCs have 250-300 watt power supply, so that inverter should be just right.

    The e-pc's only have a ~150Watt power supply. You should have plenty of extra power.

    The rating needs to be for continous use.... the peak rating on the inverter is generally what is 'advertised'. Check the specs.
