    Post Invertor for PS2

    I hooked up a 150W invertor to the + of my carbattery and used a relay to turn it on with my car's acc line. After 1 minute of running the PS2 on this invertor, the invertor started beeping which (as the manual says) means that the overload protection kicked.

    150W is enough for a PS2/Playstation2 right??

    Even when I don't connect anything to the invertor the it keeps bleeping that the overload protector kicked in.

    Is my invertor damaged? Can you guys confirm 150W is enough for a PS2?

    If my car isn't running, it doesn't matter what I have plugged into the inverter - it starts beeping.
    May be bad wiring, may be a weak battery. Either way, the alternator seems to give it enough juice.

    Mine does that too. My computer won't even get into windows before the inverter beeps and kicks off. It even does it when I start the car, when nothing is running off of it. 150W sound be more than enough to run a PS2, you just need your car running.
