I'm not sure because she has it wrapped up for Xmas. I guess before she plugs it in I better check and see if it says before it blows LOL. I never had an inverter in a truck before!

cra.-p I posted all the info in the deleted thread ,, bu they had a known site issue and had to reset to an earlier set point so We got wiped out



but it was a 150 watt inverter and will trip a thermal so I guarantee it won't fire up a blanket but worst is it will shut down for a bit if you really want to try it

Cell phone charger is the only thing I've ever used on mine.
Tried to plug in a set of elec metal snips one time and they wouldn't work. Irrc, it's only like 2 amps or something??

Since I'm a Ham radio nut, I'm always looking for power options in the truck. Just so happened that I had to run a power cord from the battery to the center console to power up a 2m/440m radio that I was installing in the console and I noticed the wires that power the outlet are very small. I doubt the plug can handle anything more that 20 to 30 watts, which is three times the power of a normal computer power supply, so don't plug in a coffee pot or a hair drier.

Check out your owners manual. I looked in there to see why the green light flashed sometimes and was solid other times. I remember seeing the specs on the outlet, but don't remember what they were haha. But it's in there.
