    One first needs to answer these important questions:
    1) Capacity of battery pack (Ah)
    2) What equipment will run from the Inverter, the current it will draw and what period of time it will run? Remember that some equipment requires a "starting" current.
    3) How will the battery be recharged (solar, DC to DC, 220V Battery Charger etc) and at what charging capacity?
    4) What type of battery is in your pack (Lead Acid, AGM, Lithium etc)?

    Once you have this information you can do a few simple calculations to determine what you need to support your requirements.
