Looking for an affordable power inverter
Hey guys, just wanted to get a recommendation for a power inverter for my truck. I'd like to be able to charge batteries and the like with it, but I don't wanna spend a fortune.
Any decent brand to be on the look out for, and where is a good place to buy?

You need a true sine wave inverter, and they are not cheap.
The low cost inverters won't play well with chargers for lithium batteries.If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

I've had mixed results.
Craftsman chargers will destroy an inverter in a matter of seconds and may damage the charger.
My Milwaukee charger does just fine, as does my laptop charger and DeWalt charger.

I think I bought it at Home Depot.
I don't really recall.
It is a 400w model. I've had it for quite a while.
