    The thing is I am unfortunately going on a trip tomorrow noon, so I need one fast. I have a Lowe's store and a Home Depot store nearby--my only two options. I could go and pick one up from there, but I just don't know what would suffice for my Phantom 4 since I've already tried a 140W with my car which didn't work.

    I've never seen anyone try to use less than a 200W inverter, so I'd recommend you go with one of the 500W options.

    Is a true sign wave inverter important for the Dji charger? I wouldn't think so as the charger is converting back to DC. I have a small inverter I use for work laptop, haven't had a need to use it for my phantom yet.

    This is sometimes a hot topic in threads like this. I know some people swear by them, but many people are successfully using inverters like those linked above.
