with the 1500 W inverter
Is it pure sine wave?
An induction cooktop is an energy efficient device but it needs all the other bits to make it work away from the dock
Big battery bank, alternators, inverters (pure sine wave), solar
, maybe generator
However, I would imagine that a 1500w victron inverter would run a single
induction cooktop which would probably on high draw around 2000-2200 watts, so you may need to run it below the highest setting, on the medium setting, it probably draws around 500w once it has reached temp. Don't run it on boost if it has this feature.
I know from experience that a 2200w electric
jug works with a 1500w victron inverter as these inverters have a lot of overload protection built in. It is probably not recommended but I did this for 2 years with no probs.
