Pure Sine or Modified Sine inverter

Happy holidays,

Just love when I get to return all the gifts to get mod money!! Question,I have seen were a few of you have added laptops in the FJ but havn't really seen the power connections,which brings up my question ,is it neccesssary to run the pure sine inverter? and is it better to hardwire it in or just use the plug in the 12v? I would like to havethe inverter mounted in the back, and as far as running the plug for laptop up front not quite sure.

Re: Pure Sine or Modified Sine inverter

Pure sine inverters are important if the device that you are plugging into the inverter uses the ac sine wave for clocking. If it's just for a laptop and other basic appliances, than a modified sine wave inverter will do fine. Just make sure that the wattage of the inverter is more than enough to meet the needs of whatever you are using the inverter for.
