My understanding of electricity is limited and could use the quick help.
I purchased an LED TV for my boat that uses 24 watts of power. I currently have it connected via an inverter
, but the actual power the TV is getting from it's supply is 12v. I would like to cut out the inverter
and supply it from my house 12v, but do not want the power fluctuation to be an issue. If I use a 12v voltage regulator
like this (click here for the Ebay link
), would this be all I need?
I'm thinking of cutting off the tv's power supply plug
, soldering in this regulator
, and wiring
it directly to the D/C circuit breaker for Stereo/TV. Would this work?
I'm doing this for the convenience of not having to have the inverter on, but also to minimize the loss of electricity. After doing some research
on the voltage regulator I listed, I see it's not a very efficient way of doing things. This would still be more efficient than the inverter correct?
