I bought a 1000W continuous / 2000w surge pure sine wave inverter and use it to power a few appliances (lights,fridge, TV, kettle, etc) during power outage. You really want to have some nice lower gauge cables between the inverter and the 12V battery.
Where do you get the 1000 watt figure? I've read, repeatedly, that it's 1800 watts max DC-DC converter output, and that 1500 watts at the car is a safe maximum draw. Most people seem to get a 2000 watt inverter and then limit the loads to no more than 1500 watts.
