He wouldn't be able to use the full capacity of the 150 watt power inverter, though, because it would draw about 12 amps, like Pain said. He would need to figure up the wattage of whatever he wants to use and then convert to amps to figure out if it will work or not.
He might be able to use it anyway, and just put a charger on his battery at night to charge it back up. That would work as long as he didn't use so many amps that it would run the battery down while he was still using the power inverter. Also, it might shorten his battery life a little bit.
Yep it could very well shorten his batt. life if it takes awhile to charge the stuff he wants but if it charges at a reasonable rate and he rides or runs the engine for a while after charging it might be ok. I guess it's one of those things he will just have to try and see how well it works.
Yeah, if I really wanted to use that power inverter, I would go ahead and try it anyway. Like you said, if he isn't going to be running too many amps on it, it'll probably be OK anyway.
The charging system on those 300s didn't put out too many amps, but most of the newer ATVs charge more. I guess more and more people are riding everyday and they are using more and more accessories, so they had to start building them with bigger charging systems.
lol maybe I need to get a new quad I would like a wide screen tv on mine!
