Memory Device for Inverter/Converter

While Paul understands "how" to use inverters and converters----somewhat----neither of us can remember which is which a few days after we've dealt with an issue. We can remember for about 72 hours, then it fades.

Like trying to recall which twin is Tweedle-Dee and which is Tweedle-Dum, maybe.

So I developed this simple little memory "chart."
It works great...until I forget exactly how I did it.
So now I'm printing one out and putting clear plastic over it and putting it in the tool box for Peanut, as well as a few more strategic locations, like fridge and wallet, maybe.




InVerter
12V -- --> 110/120V
Battery ----> Shore

COnverter
11O/12OV ----> 12V
ShOre ----> Battery









Just thought I'd share--for whatever it may be worth.

BEST
Kai

How about this:

When you are conned you end up with less.

So 110v --> 12v is a con.

If you get CONned, you have less.
So 120 -->12 V is a CONverter.


Makes into a nice, small card, EZ to tuck somewhere handy.

I guess since I have had to research the various models, figure out what my needs are in terms of power, save up the money to purchase them and then do the work to physically install those devices myself I then have no trouble remembering exactly what they are and what they do.
