    Just looking for advice on buying an inverter here in the UK, I've seen an inverter in argos rated at 700w, is this any good and can i run it straight from the cigarette lighter? Only going to charge 1 battery a time. Any advice appreciated.

    I mounted my Invertor in the boot. My car has the battery in the boot. Ran heavy gauge cables straight into the battery and then hard wired it in.

    Advantage can charge battery in lipo sack in the boot inside a little box. Have multiple chargers in the boot

    Pure sinwave invertor 600w continuous / 1200W peak. Will run a Inspire 180W charger, P3 100W charger and all other field RC chargers. The Turnigy runs straight off 12V and has 4 channels 100w each.

    Careful charging lipo's in the back of the car especially in hot weather. The results may not be what you expect.
