Subject: Re: OT: Charging a Macbook in the woods
I have never really researched it but most inverters out put a square wave
vs AC uses a sine wave. As a 30 year RV owner and one that uses a good
inverter/laptop in my car. I have never had a issue.
I do make sure I have a good battery as a filter and a surge protector
might be a good idea. 5 years ago I camped in the RV for two months using
the generator daily to charge phones and computers
and used my phone to tether with no issue. my wife used her CPAP on hot
nights with the Generator. I assume cheap inverters/ Generators could be a
issue but with 0 issues I would say Go for it and enjoy
tech in the woods. Todd
