Fantastic! Great little set up to learn with. It has its limitations but with that GT Power Watt Meter handy, you'll learn what you can do with it..

I researched the battery and it has ~100 aHr. of reserve. If you're careful and don't drain the battery any less than 25% of its total rating, you'll get the longest amount of service from it. (25 aHr. Maximum) That Power Watt Meter will help you keep an eye on the usage..

Keep in mind that the inverter can/will eat the battery up really fast! It's a 10 to 1 ratio. It takes 10 amps of the 12 volt battery to make 1 amp of 120 V.A.C.

Congrats and have fun learning!
