Just got one to power a 24” Lenovo monitor and HDMI receiver:

My setup is wireless and autonomous for 8-9 hrs of continuous use.
Pretty happy this far. Couldnt find a better commercial alternative but still pretty open to suggestions

I have gone down that road. I burned up a lot of batteries in the process and almost had to walk home a time or two.

If you want portable 12v power, get an inverting generator and a power supply.

Generalizations are usually not very informative. Have you tried the ChargeTech? Do you have any solid concerns about the ChargeTech based on reports or your own experience.
I am pretty happy this far. My setup is super compact and portability is key for our app.
PS. Are you suggesting a wired power supply?

You sound like someone who has already decided they made the correct decision.
If not, do some research on the difference between an inverter that puts out a square wave vs sine-wave.

I have no experience with that battery pack / inverter
I will tell you this; If it is a cheap inverter, your monitor and power supply for the HDTV transmitter will not last very long.

If all you use on this is the DC-out, I'm sure it will be just as good as any other LiPo pack.

Believe 1/2 of what you see and none of what you hear.

Tice, your impression is somehow wrong and somehow correct. I am happy this far with the ChargeTech. I also believe that there is, more often than not, w better solution for any given problem.
I am not all that concern with the cost (paid 500 bucks for the batt pack and HDMI thingy). This is for work so my company can afgord it. My goal is portability (size, weight, mobility, wireless, etc). For the inverter, I would need a power supply, correct? This will add more cables and stuff to carry affecting portability, right? Now, the power supply will need a source of electricity, am I right? So, would I need a battery for the power supply?
I can assure you I am not trying to be a prick/annoying -I apologise if I am giving that impression. If possible I would like to improve my setup. So, I will be more than thankful if you can elaborae on how to use an inverter for this app.
