Assuming that most electric
kettles are 2000-2300w....
You will have problems with 780, you need at least 1000. The 780 might work ok when the batteries are at 100%.
Secondly, to boil water with an electric
jug, you need your inverter to be able to withstand 2200 and maybe 2400 watts depending on the kettle.
As an example, I had an earlier model Victron inverter that was rated I think at around 1600w, and for a year or so I overloaded it with a 2200w jug with no problems. When it was overloaded the lights flashed at a speed that indicated the level of overload.
I am not recommending that you do this and it is probably best that you get an inverter that can handle the rating of the electric kettle that you use.
