RE: I want to run a microwave on an inverter

I'm just curious, what takes 10 minutes in a microwave? A Big TV Dinner. :) I've been running my microwave using a Renogy 2KW Inverter to heat a small TV Dinner or a cup of coffee. Maybe 6 minutes max. When I installed the Inverter, using two Battleborn 100 ah batteries, wired with 2/0 awg wires running about 2' to the Inverter, and monitored by a Victron BMV 712, I found the Inverter was drawing 125 amp and after a one minute run it used exactly 2 amp hours as recorded on the monitor. A 6 minute TV dinner uses about 12 amp hours. Nice thing about the LiFePo4 batteries is the lack of significant voltage sag as you see with Lead Acid batteries. This setup has served me well for over a year now and I use it a lot. For every night I spend at a full hookup site, I spend 15-20 days boondocking.
