i'm not - after doing research and from the comments on here, looks like DC will work just fine. Thought the plug would work better for a compressor, but its actually the opposite.

DrCloud 150W at 120V is 1.25 amps, which won't do much for you -- check out the name plate of power tools where it shows this stuff. This feature, however, does eliminate the need for special car charger cords for phones and so on.

But I bet a lot of people burn through fuses on that circuit faster than doobies. HPH

mikemounlio Just buy you a bigger converter and wire it in place of the stock one.

Thracks lol 150 watts.

I have a 12v to 120v power converter that does just that. I tried plugging a hand vacuum into it once and it just farted a few times.

tomthbomb Not much that the 120v AC will handle that a 12v DC can't do unless you want to install a 42" flat screen TV.

Hmmm...........wait a minute. May work!

Looking at compressors and wondering if i can just plug one in.

At only 150 watts it won't handle much.

From the user manual:

This outlet can power cellular phones, electronics
and other low power devices requiring power up to
150 Watts. Certain high-end video games, such as Playstation3
and XBox360 will exceed this power limit, as will
most power tools.
