Your inverter provides 150 Watts (maximum), your microwave needs 700 Watts to operate.

What else is there to say?

Look at this its for a caravan:

you can larger than 150W inverters so it does hold out the promise that it may be able to find a workable compromise.

Oops, should have read the link before replying :blushing:

Maybe you should just buy a small portable generator c£50?

It goes without saying to not run the genny inside the avensis

I am interested to know why you would want a microwave in the car, do you travel to some very remote places where hot food is not available?

Inverters go up to say 5000w watts from a 12v Battery but they cost a small fortune and will kill your Battery quicker than you will realise. The starting surge on say a 850w microwave is around 1500w so you will need an 1800w inverter costing around £3000, are you sure you really want a microwave in your car?

If you live on the road i think take a ways are your best bet.

Could you not cook things on the exhaust?

We used to do that with an old land rover, Meat loaf and baked potatoes cooked in foil on the manifold.

Drive to the campsite a few hours away and you had a hot meal ready as soon as you put your tents up... Magic :thumbsup:

i'm going fishing a lot and the caffe food is not appealing at all

i thought it might cost a couple of hundred pounds to get a working one but it seems that it's a little bit more than i was expecting

anyway, thanks for your input guys
