Smallwe Inverters

I agree that Peg already has an inverter.

I suggested a smaller inverter because there tends to be less power wasted in smaller inverters and to indicate that 150 watts does it easily. Her 400 watt inverter should have no trouble. Our Scamps 24" TV uses 50 watts peak.

The differential power (12V in vs 120V out) on my 400 watt inverter is in the range of 3-5 watts. That may even be more or less than with a less expensive/smaller unit. And the 12 volt plug itself, at 50 watts (4 amps) is a power loss v. hard wiring
FWIW: I think that power losses in modern inverters are pretty much a moot point.
