    invertor vs psu

    can some one tell me the differences, pros and cons etc of each.

    OMG!!!

    Inverters are fantastic, they are so much better than any DC-DC Opus or anything....

    dude, please, please, please for the answers

    I will spoon feed you a bit: think about things such as...

    -ve:
    efficiency
    noise
    component count/system complexity

    +ve:
    high power (well over current dc-dc limits)
    cheap
