Power inveter Aux Pwr Outlet?

What will the aux power outlet handle for a power inverter. I am going a long trip and want to put my ps3 in the back. My buddy has a 400watt inverter but he ran a hot wire from the battery in his car.

Re: Power inveter Aux Pwr Outlet?

The inverters themselves are usually the determining factor on whether they can be run off the auxilary jack. Lower wattage ones will have a cigarette lighter adapter while higher wattage ones will have a battery clamp or bare wire connection for hard wiring.

Check the specs on your PS3, see what the peak wattage draw is and select the next inverter in line.

Fry's electronics (retail store if you have them) has a XO Vision brand inverter specifically for game consoles. Includes a game plug-in "plate" as well as additional plug-in on the actual inverter. Here's a link

I mounted mine under the front driver's side seat.
