Can someone explain to me why this doesn't work.
I have a 2000/4000w inverter which runs from the alternator in my vehicle.
When using the inverter, I increase the idle speed so that the alternator puts out 14.4v, I can run all sorts of power tools, 850w angle grinder, 1800w electric chainsaw, 2000w heat gun to name a few.
My 800w microwave however refuses to run. It starts off looking healthy but then it appears to lose interest and slows down and makes a funny noise.
Do I need a ballast?
