    Default Inverter connection

    I want to buy a small inverter, literally like 150W (to charge things that are not 12V, like baby monitors)

    Must an inverter be connected to the battery direct (via cable) - or can that size inverter be plugged in to the brad harris that feeds my fridge?

    Will happily plug into the Brad Harrison without any issues. What size cable feeds the fridge socket?

    By the eye they look like 4-5mm

    150W is about 12.5A on 12v.

    The most common brad harrison connectors can handle up to 50A (some 25A). So, YES, it will be perfectly fine.

    You could even do 150W on a cigarette or hella plug. Some small inverters are actually mounted onto a cigarette plug.

    I agree. As long as the cable is short.

    Not sure what you have in mind but I was recommended this inverter by the forum and I have been using it with my CPAP for some time now and I am very impressed with it, quiet and robust!
