aquaticeco.com has a 300 watt inverter that has it's own built in battery. They also have a nice automatic system to protect your tank while your not there! A little on the expensive side but good insurance for a tank full of corals.Ed Hahn said:Has anyone ever used a inverter to power a powerhead, Air pump, heater in a cooler for transporting animals?
Thank You Dang,tamarindthai said:Ed
i had been used invertor .,got 2-750watts with 2-30A fuse protection for ea unit,,yes one of them for heater 250W max and one of them for 4 powerheads,wiil worked,,,
donot exceed more than 65% for long period of time,,battery wire will get hot quick if more than 45mins,
so be carefull do not OL the invertor.
for car used do not plug from cig lighter,,2-wire + and - directed from battery with 30A fuse protection it'll save.
I have a small regular style cooler like the first one you posted! I use it to keep pop & food cold when Iâ€™m on the road or camping! Itâ€™s powered by the same thermoelectric cooling unit as the one you first looked at! Thereâ€™s no thermostat to it & it would get way too cold or hot if you left it plugged in all the time. Maybe you could wire in some type of thermostat to start & stop it, Or just set up an inside temp probe so that you can manually switch it on & off?Ed Hahn said:Here is what I was looking at to transfer corals..
