I have a 150 watt farenheit power inverter that I'm using to power a ps2. It works fine, but my problem is that it goes into protect if I leave it on while starting my car.
My voltage drops momentarily to around 10-11 volts while starting the car and that's low enough to send my inverter into protect. I'm wondering if this is a common problem or do I just have a crappy power inverter? Is there anything I can to fix it without buying a new inverter? It's a pain because for instance, if I'm watching a dvd with the car off and then I start it up, I have to shut the inverter off, turn it back on, wait for the ps2 to power back up and then try to find my place in the movie...
