So as we're checking things off lists for the final handover, equipping and victualing the boat is in its final planning stages.
Trying to think of everything you need that you normally build up and refine over years, but without adding crap tonnes of weight.
Last night i realised I have no way to charge the laptop on board. Heaps of USB plugs but no 240V. So I decide an inverter is the way.
And here the fun starts.
Modified or pure sinewave (price difference x3).
How small is too small? Mac charger will suck 1.8A at 110-240AC, apparently, so worst case the charger sucks 440watts or thereabouts. So a 500W pure should cover that, but i can get 800 for an additional €150, or go further to 1200 but then we're looking at nearly €500 all up, or more if I get the "Phoenix compact". THis is all Victron stuff I'm talking about.
Will we need (as opposed to want) extra power?
