First of all, THANK YOU to anyone offering their expertise to me, who is totally ignorant of most things electrical. Seriously, thank you.
I want to run my 2000 watt/sec power source (for photo lights) off of an inverter connected to a battery when I am outdoors away from power outlets. I just want to make sure that the inverter and battery I'm looking at can do the job without catching fire or anything like that.
The light and the power supply are literally made for each other and I am very familiar with using them with indoor power outlets and gas powered inverters. The power supply is basically a big capacitor that takes about a second or two to charge up and can then release all the energy very quickly. The light is made for this. Those two components will work together, guaranteed. I want to try this setup because it will be relatively light weight and compact. It will also be much quitter and less expensive than a gas powered inverter. Someone suggested using a marine battery, but those things are massive. I like that this one is only about albs.
So, will this work? Could I add another one of these batteries for longer use? Am I going to end up on the evening news?
