That's interesting. Thanks, Carol.
Small and light
is good, and the power may be adequate for many uses in the trailer, but of course it's far short of a typical home microwave
. In searching for the smallest unit (in size, weight
, and power consumption) for our Boler
I found that 600W microwave
output (so about 900W power input) is as small as they come; my guess is that the WaveBox specification of "660w" is for in the input power, so this unit probably has less than 450W of microwave power. Twenty years ago, that was considered adequate for home unit, so it might do fine.
While this is better suited to battery-driven operation than just about anything else I've seen, it will still take over 50 amps (at 12V), so I wouldn't waste the battery
juice to heat coffee (one of their examples).
I do find their technical information somewhat suspect: they quote 2 times to 2.5 times longer cooking times required at 175W versus at 660W, which just doesn't make sense.
