the 110 power port

i am wondering what all can the 110 power port run.

my girlfriend have been using a heating pad because of injuries to her shoulder, it got me wondering if that little port would run her heating pad and what else. I know it runs my phones wall charger fine but that isnt much

Its has a max capacity of 150w, which is around 1.2 or 1.3amps. I don't think that is enough for a heating pad, but check the pad's wattage.

I doubt it will handle a heating pad. I tried using mine with a air inflator for a mattress and it tripped it almost immediately.

You might be better off to get a converter that plugs into the 12v outlet on the dash. That has either a 10 amp or 20 amp fuse...not sure which. I've got my seat heaters tapped into that circuit and it does just fine, and I can still use the outlet to charge my cell phone.

They do make 12v heating pads designed to work in a car.
The builtin converter won't run a home heating pad.

Though, the 12v outlets are also limited to around 150watts.

It's f'n useless, is what it is.

I tried to run a coffee maker and a toaster while camping. No go on either. I know these are high wattage devices but really... what low wattage devices are people trying to use? Laptop charger maybe? I don't know why they didn't put in a more powerful transformer.

I think the intended use is a laptop charger because it won't support much more than that.

It's intended use is for something like charging a laptop on the road. Low amperage. The wiring going to the inverter is fairly thin, so it's designed to trip for more powerful devices. Mine wouldn't run a coffee grinder.

it will charge my Mavic Air batteries but not my P3P which used too many amps.

lighter plug will work if you get a 12v heating pad. they make em and they will get pretty hot.

cannot compare 12v DC to converted AC , DC will always win

Not a shop-vac! It is low amperage, really for things like mobile device chargers, laptops, small common household things that wouldn't be considered an "appliance".

The 12V outlet will barely charge an iPhone. I can't get my phone to charge if I am running Waze and streaming music.

I charge my Mavic Pro batteries and the controller at the same time just fine with it. I don’t have much more use for it though it is perfect for that use.
I plug my phone into the center console interior USB charger, and my CB into the interior 12V power port.
All of this stuff at the same time with no problems??

Wire in a bigger transformer with heavier wiring.

If you're talking about the cigarette lighter socket, then it most certainly will. If you're having issues, it's the charger you're using. Not the outlet.

I removed the stock inverter. Really quite useless at 150 watts. Installed a 1500watt inverter and connected it to the stock outlet.

Please explaine how you did it, parts used, how long has it been in place and how much you've used it without torching anything on the Jeep?

Any pictures?

Thanks,

Jeff B.

My wife and I both use heated motorcycle clothing in our Jeep. Plugs into cig outlet and they get just as hot as any heating pad when on high.

Iíve tried several different ones without any success. Is there a brand or type that you recommend?

Anker seems well regarded. I used one for a few years with no issues.

I now have one of these. I spliced into the 12V socket wire so it's using the same circuit. Works really well.

how was the wiring to connect it?

i have many inverters 300-1500 watts and know they will not output their stated watts unless they are connected via .. perhaps #4 wire. if you just replace the inverter and use stock wiring for 150w inverter , chances are you wont gain a whole lot.

i tries with my inverter to charge my p3p batteries. its 100w charger but up to 5amps. i have a 300w inverter and it wouldnt charge when plugged in to cig lighter. it beeped and charged off and on very quick.

now i connected it direct to battery and relay with #4 wire and it outputs full power and charges like a champ.

look on the charger. there are chargers that range from .5 amps to 2.5 amp and higher with usb c . ensure you get a 2.5amp C.L.A for quick charging and tablets and such.

dual ones tend to be 2.5 and the other 1 amp.

Not much to tell. The inverter is mounted high under the hood to protect from water. (too big to fit under the dash). There are 2 plugs off the inverter and I simply made a sort of extension cord to the outlet on the inside.

You can't use the stock wiring. It's like mounting a winch.... you need #4 or better and you have to run directly to the battery. My inverter does have a remote turn on which has been incorporated into the original dash switch so it all looks oem.

The one I listed above has 4.8 amps available between the two ports. So they're both fast charging ports. Not just one of them.

I think this is the Anker I had.

https://www.anker.com/products/varia...ive-2/A2310012

Again... both ports will fast-charge.

That's the one I have, too. Works great.

Although, that has 2.4Amp charging ports, it is not a FAST charger.

A fast charger is one that detects if your phone supports fast charging, and when it detects a phone is connected which supports fast charging it will raise it's output voltage from the standard 5V to 9V. Notice on the specs of the chargers you posted it says Output=5V. A Fast charger will say Output Voltage= 5V/9V.

Most fast chargers will say it supports Quick Charge 3.0 or QC3 stamped on it. This would be a fast charger.
https://www.amazon.com/Charger-CHGee...s%2C143&sr=8-7

I got one of these, it sits flush in my 12V outlet and supports QC3.
