The threads and priority of folks are so diverse on CF. I'm huge on power management on board after living aboard
almost 18 years. That's just me. Blow driers, space heaters, and coffee makers are dock appliances
for some of us on CF. I use a coffee pot or stove
top french press for coffee. When you look at the path from battery
your talking about it gets interesting.
source -> DC 12v battery
-> Inverter AC 12v -> RESISTIVE heated appliance... Basicly you change the electrical
characteristics and then short the power/battery out so you can heat water
, or blow the heat into the air/hair...
Inverters just add to the inefficiencies. 80%...
When I purchase
device I ask can I charge it with 12v?
Can I use a switching voltage regulator
that will fit in a 12v plug
to power it off 12v DC?
Laptops run off 12v travel chargers.
The only thing electronic we have to use an inverter for is an inkjet printer. So we end up with a 200 amp plugin inverter that we use on occasion to print.
My Humble Opinion :-)
