Q:Will this power a tv?
by|Mar 12, 2024

Answer This Question

A:  Check the power draw on the TV. My 43" only pulls 90 watts so it would run fine on this inverter.

      A:  Hello, Lori - It would depend on the size of the crock pot. If it were a mini size, it may work depending on if the crock pot does not consume more than 175 watts. This inverter is ideal for laptops, tablets, smart phones, and other small electronics. We hope this helps!

            The inverter works well but needs better cooling. It has thermal protection. I like the convenience and the power available from my batteries. It’s powering a dash cam mounted on my bicycle that draws 12 volts. I’m getting good ride videos using this inverter and a 4 Ah battery.

            Not clean power
            Good but not great it’s very dirty power quality that’s similar to the inverters of 14 years ago .. it’s 2022 it should be smooth sign-wave not the un friendly square wave.. lights tvs and small motors will hum and otherwise it’s fine if your in a jam also just to add quick it’s floating neutral so some of your sensitive stuff won’t even turn on

              Simple device and can use different size of battery.
              Great backup in case of storm or outrage of power. Also, can use far from the power outlet. Also, come with little light on if you want to see in the dark room.

                  Double use for your batteries
                  This is a great use for your batteries during power outages. The 175 watts can power a number of led bulbs or even a router to keep your internet going. It also has its own light and has two USB to charge phones or power other electronic equipment. You can use any Ridgid 18 volt battery. Obviously, the bigger the battery the longer the inverter can run on a single charge.

                  Handy gadget
                  If you like being prepared for power outages or just need portable power, take a look at the Rigid 175 watt power inverter. Its powered by Rigid 18 volt batteries. This unit will come in handy for outages or remote power needs. I even tried it on a 39 inch flat screen TV and it worked great. The unit has one 110 volt AC outlet for up to 175 watts or 2.3 amps, two USB type A outlets, and one type C outlet. The build quality is pro grade. This is a great compact solution for power needs.

                  175-watt Power Inverter
                  RIDGID 18V Cordless 175-Watt Power Inverter (Tool Only) This handy portable battery operated power inverter can be useful when you need to charge your phones, and other USB powered devices during times of blackouts, or when your not near an electrical outlet. Since this device is “tool only”, it does not come with a battery, but if you have or use 18 volt Ridgid tools, then you can use them in this inverter. I like the flashlight on this thing, the 2 USB A ports are useful as well as the USB C port that is slowly becoming more popular. The 120 volt outlet can work to charge smaller device, such as laptops, iPads and other devices that consume no more than 175 watts. Comes with a lifetime warranty.

                  GREAT FOR POWER OUTAGES AND LOCATIONS WITHOUT POWER; INCLUDES BOTH USB AND 120V AC OUTLETS; NO BATTERY
                  The RIDGID 18V Cordless 175-Watt Power Inverter can be an extremely useful tool during a power outage. I like that it has both USB A and C outlets and a 120V AC outlet. It is impressive that all four outlets can be used concurrently. I used the 120V AC outlet to power a lamp and concurrently used one of the USB-A outlets to charge my tablet. I much prefer reading under a lamp vs. a flashlight during a power outage and this power inverter can make that happen. The 120V AC outlet is still limited to what it can power but I assume that will increase over time. What I have not done is time how long the 120V AC power will last with a RIDGID 8Ah battery. The inverter also has an LED light. The power inverter is made in China.
