Re: 12V TV Recommendations

I bought a no-name 19" LED TV on the internet for just over $100. I wanted to use it as a monitor for my laptop nav program. It has 12vDC input, VGA, HDMI, multiple USB. Its mounted on a swing arm so it stows against the hull when at sea.
Its been onboard for more than 2 years now, back and forth across the pacific, works fine, and it is quite tolerant of 14.4 VDC when batteries are charging...

See you out there ....... Alan S.V. Elyse

After figuring the energy usage options, I went with a low energy model that draws 110VAC and just use the inverter.
All flat screen televisions convert to DC, either externally or internally. Some might have a lower internal voltage than 12V though.
