115v power adapter enough?

Hey guys,

Got a 2013 jeep grand cherokee with the power outlet on the back of the center console.

I'm looking at a wet/dry vac that says it uses 10amps and 120v of power. Will my power outlet be able to run this?

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks!

I think the adapter is rated at 150 watts...which would be rated for 1.25 amps. So no, it would not be able to handle a 10 amp wet vac.

Double check me on the watts though. i'm pretty sure that's what it is though.

Re: 115v power adapter enough?

Power is found by Power = Volts x Current. So the vac is 1200 Watts...not even close. Power inverters aren't very expensive, but thats just one more thing to buy and carry around. Too bad the stock one doesn't do more.

Re: 115v power adapter enough?

Think it was designed for charging cell phones and other electronics. Useful for plugging in laptops or dvd players for back seat use.
Nice for video games, electric shaver...things like that.

Re: 115v power adapter enough?

How can I shave and drive at the same time if the power outlet is in the back?

Seriously though, I have an old inverter I take camping to blow up air mattresses, rafts, etc. It's got to be a foot long and still doesn't have enough power to run a 1,200W appliance.

The outlet in my 2011 WK2 trips when charging my son's MacBook!

Re: 115v power adapter enough?

The build-in inverter is for things like small, electronic devices and the like. It's not going to power big things with motors. You can get a much more powerful aftermarket inverter from a variety of sources to power larger things if need be.

Re: 115v power adapter enough?

Indeed. The standard 120W outlet wasn't enough to charge my just retired gaming laptop (P-6860FX). The new ultra-compact replacement (Clevo W110ER) only needs a 90W supply, so I'm good now....

Re: 115v power adapter enough?

Keep in mind that the output is only part of the issue, a 140W inverter at 85% is going to want nearly 14 amps of 12v as input. Much more and you are going to strain the wiring.

I have several inverters and everything above 180W is designed to connect directly to the battery. Now with the battery under the passenger seat, an 800/400 can mount there easily and provide enough for just about any electronics.

Re: 115v power adapter enough?

I use it to run a 4qt crock pot on 'warm' with no issues.
However, it won't run a 6qt crock pot on 'low' (no warm setting).

Oh, well.
Keeps the beer-cheese meatballs warm for the trip to our friend's house!
