    Did a bit of testing this weekend with the Xantrex 600HD and all seems to be working well.
    Charged the Xantrex to full and put it in the car, ran an extension cord to the WD Live Hub and powered the...

    Yes, I'm going to fully charge before testing.
    The battery estimates I have issues with revolve around the ones uses in mobile electronics. The problem being of course that the amount of power...

    The spec sheet I have says it has a 28 amp hour battery. So, with the 24 watts (2amps x 12w) that the device I intend to use is going to draw it should be good for 14 hours...or in my pessimistic...

    Yes, it will charge while it's in use. At least that's what their tech support guy stated.

    Why do you think the battery life will be short? Any shorter than a similar battery that is.

    As for...

    OklSpark, you're right...here's why I went with this...and I'm not positive it'll work:

    1. It's easy and won't take any time (if it works). I can connect it to the back lighter outlet in the van...

    Okay, so here's what I'm going to try. I'm going to buy this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000E6LEIC/ref=oh_o00_s00_i00_details.
    This is the company that makes the unit I posted earlier for...

    So...I was looking at something else and saw this unit. I wonder if I can plug the WD into the outlet and have it charging off the car lighter at the same time?...

    You can get an XBox now that doesn't have a HD (uses Flash memory) and you can load games from the DVD to the memory so the DVD really doesn't do much. You can also just buy many games through the...

    Actually, that's what I'm going to do. I don't need a UPS...all I need is a battery powerful enough to run the WD unit and then a charger I can plug into the ligher that will keep ahead of the drain....

    I've considered a DC-DC converter, but that still doesn't get me by the shutdown during ignition issue (or so I think). The other problem is that the DC-DC is kind a single task device while an...

    Oops, no the car I'm doing this work on is a 2006 Honda Odyssey. The Prius is my car. I actually used the Prius as a home generator after a hurricane down here. 11 gallons of gas lasted us five days.

    I appreciate the suggestions and the time you took to make them. Finding information like what I've garnered here will save me hours and probably quite a few dollars in trial and error. Now, what I...

    OklSpark, it wasn't late, I'm on probation here cause I'm a roookie. My posts have to be reviewed by the local gendarmes before being made public.

    My initial goal is to get a Western Digital Live...

    The problem with a 2nd battery is finding the space under the hood of an Odyssey to do so. What I really need is an inverter with a small backup battery that can handle the load for 30 seconds. I...
  15. Okay, I'm going to go with an inverter directly...

    Okay, I'm going to go with an inverter directly wired to the battery. Supposedly this will prevent it from shutting down when the car is started. Does anyone out there have an inverter brands they...

    As an alternative I could survive with DC-DC that would survive through the car starting. I need to be able to output about 24W.
  17. I need 110 that work through ignition/cranking.

    I've been struggling with the proper setup to provide 110v outlets (probably never draw more than 100 - 150 watts).
    I've used inverters before but they shut down when the car battery's voltage drops...
