If I used this with my EGO 56V/5Ah battery, how long would it be able to power a lamp with a 60W light bulb? I'm not an electrical engineer and don't know how to do the math for that calculation.
Asked by: RCP
V x Ah = Wh so (56v x 5Ah )/60W = 4.66 hrs. Call it 4 hrs.

In a Power Outage, can we use it to run our gas furnace? AC? Or will the draw be too high?

In a Power Outage, can we use it to run our gas furnace? AC? Or will the draw be too high?
Asked by: JR
As info, I was able to measure the power used by our gas central heating system as 500 W. I'm sure that the largest part of this is for the blower motor. Any backup power system must also be able to support the starting surge current for this blower. I've read that a generator rated at 2500 W is able to handle the starting load. Air conditioning requires many times more power.

@EGO: I need to charge an iPad Pro with a 12-watt wall wart. Can you estimate how long an EGO 2.5 Amp battery would last pulling 12 watts off of the 110 volt plug?
Asked by: DJDDay
The Type A USB ports can charge a tablet/phone too, albeit just slightly slower than the wall wart. The EGO manual says the USB output is "5V, Max.4.2A (two USB ports combined)". So probably 2.1A per port (like many other USB chargers). 2.1A*5V=10.5W. You just need a cable that has Type A on one end and whatever connector on the other to match the tablet/phone. 2018 iPad Pros don't ship with a Type A USB cable, so you would need to use the 12W adapter and the USB C cable.

Nexus Escape 150-Watt Power Inverter is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 351.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I purchased this as a backup for when utility power... I purchased this as a backup for when utility power fails. I used this on a few things that draw less 100 watts. Even with a 7.5 ah battery it only lasted for 2-3 hours. It is not worth the money I paid for it even with the discount. If all you want to do is keep a phone charged there are much cheaper options out there. If you really want to use it as a backup system it is useless. It seems that the inverter itself draws most of the power from the battery and that you only get about 10 % of the battery power for what ever you plug into the 110 volt outlet. I can run my mower in heavy grass for almost as long as this inverter will run. In the winter the snow blower runs longer than the inverter and my 16" chainsaw runs longer. EGO really failed on this design. They need to return to the design board and come up with a better system with true sine wave. This should only cost about $25. I could have built one myself with a couple of diodes and a iron coil minus the automatic shut off for about $5.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Theoretical run time calculation For a fully charged 2.0AmpHr 56V battery, calculated available WattHr = 2x56 =112 WattHr. Assuming 85% inverter efficiency, available WattHr = 112*.85=95.2WattHr. If you have a 65W device (a laptop for example), it will run around 95.2WattHr / 65W = 1.46 HR or 88 minutes. For a larger battery, calculation is the same except you just change the 2 to 2.5 or 7 in the first calculation above. The above only serves as an theoretical estimate to give you an idea of how long a particular battery size will last for a give device with known and constant power consumption. If you wonder why 150W is not part of the calculations above, it is because it only indicates the maximum output current draw is 150W/120V = 1.25A. This current has nothing to do with the calculation above (but it is important to understand as it limits the device that can be plugged in to the inverter) Hope this makes sense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emergency Power on the Go!!!! As an owner of EGO tools for the last two years, I have amassed quite a bit of batteries. Like most owners, I have all these batteries sitting on the shelf FULL OF POWER and not getting utilized - other than the weekly yard work. Finally, EGO heard our requests for an inverter that can utilize all these batteries .... After purchasing the inverter, I decided to put this new tool to the test by charging my laptop computer. It took about 2.5 hours to get my laptop from 30% to 100% full charge on a 5.0Ah battery. I was able to get two "full charges" on one battery before the unit shuts off. Not satisfied with this, I increase the load a "little more" by using a surge protector to charge my laptop computer and the 22" TV monitor. I had a movie running on the TV monitor, while working on my laptop. I did not noticed any "lags" during this time. Both devices combined had a total of 136 W, which was below the range of the 150 W for the inverter. That said; my inverter finally shuts off around 2.1 hours for this test. Overall, I had positive results using this new inverter. My plan, however, is to use this inverter for "backup" or "emergency" powers when an electrical outlet is not accessible. I don't do a lot of camping, but will certainly bring this along for extra power. Thanks EGO for listening to our request, and hope to see more tools in the coming months ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great back up solution for smaller 120V devices I was looking for a battery back up for my gas tankless water heater that requires electricity for start up and vent fan. Since I already own many EGO batteries from the 2.0AH to the 7.5AH batteries I thought I would give the EGO inverter a try. I am pleased to say that this unit performed flawlessly in initial tests with the 2.0AH battery. I then tried it on my 42" Smart TV with no issues as well. Obviously the actual run time for each device will depend upon the AH battery used. Under light loads there is no fan noise. Under heavier loads the inverter fan does run but is not obnoxious. Based upon the initial testing I purchased a second unit to be used as a back up for my internet, modem, and LED lighting on the second level of my home. This will give me the ability to run several key devices during a power outage without having to pull out the generator and run extension cords.

Emergency backup or convenience being able to charge your phone if you do not have a power source available. I was able to charge my cell phone, plug in a laptop or plug in a TV. In this day of technology with loss of power, you can be put in a position of no communication of what is going on.This inverter with the battery is easy to carry and is compact. It has a handle that folds down, and the unit sets flat on the floor or table. The unit is very nice because it allows you to move your AC source to an appliance, light, fan, TV or laptop,making it truely a step forward from other units. We recently had a power outage that lasted over night, and it was a real wake up call. First time both of our cell phones didn't have full charges. This being the only way for us to have communication made us realize we needed a back up plan.I highly recommend this unit especially for the buyer that already has GO product tools and has a charger and battery for them. This bare tool inverter is Well Worth it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bought this battery powered inverter because I have multiple EGO batteries from all of my yard ... I bought this battery powered inverter because I have multiple EGO batteries from all of my yard tools, and I got a $25 off coupon from Ego. It is great for charging up USB devices. However, the AC inverter part may or may not work for your device, as it is a square wave inverter, and interacts badly with many devices. The 150 watt capacity is relatively small, so check the rating of the devices you want to run. And because it is a square wave power supply, it interacts badly with some devices, even though they are rated at well under 150 watts. It will run incandescent light bulbs, and most electronics with a switching power adapter (laptop charger, power tool battery charger, etc...). It will run SOME LED lights, but not all. It will run SOME fans/motors, but not all, and motors may "humm" or "buzz" annoyingly based upon the square wave power. The most annoying thing for me was that I wanted to use it with a 40 watt hot glue gun so I wouldn't have to run a long extension cord. Even though the glue gun only draws 50 watts upon startup and then quickly goes down to a constant 40 watt draw, it interacted badly with the Ego Nexus Escape, which shut down and refused to run. Rated at 150 watts, it should have been able to run the glue gun easily, but I ended up having to run the extension cord. For the $75 I paid, it works OK, and will be useful to have in a power outage, but I wouldn't pay $100 for it, and if you do, be sure to test it with every device you want to use it with to make sure it meets you needs before you discard the receipt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy gadget Hello. Primary reason I acquired this unit is in case of a power outage resulting in failure of the main forced air heating system. What can I say this is Minnesota after all. We have a gas fireplace in the living room that allows us to heat the house if the power is out but the blower needs AC to operate. The blower requires approximately 110 watts or 1 amp at 120 volts to run and this unit will handle the job very well. It came with a 2.5 amp hour battery and a charger. I also have two 5 amp hour batteries from my EGO snow-blower which can be used in an emergency. I have used it to charge my tablet even using it while charging. Charged my phone very fast. It even powered a 18 inch pedestal fan in the hallway and an EVC rotary tool (similar to a Dremel) in the shop. I tried a 50 inch TV with 153 watt input required and it powered up no problem. How long it would keep it going I honestly have no idea. I doubt I will use it for this but it is nice to know it will work. Went to a “bring a dish lunch” an hour and a half from home and used it for a small crock pot on low setting (104 watts). Other uses would be emergency lighting, camping, charging or powering other electronics from the USB ports when away from the grid. Having lights and audio equipment for events in the back yard or park. I am sure that I will find other uses for it in the future.
