Exclamation modified sine wave inverters

I have two x2s and want to charge them via a 12 vdc battery and inverter... is there a thread discussion on modified sine wave vs. pure sine wave inverters for charging with 12vdc power source? thanks t

There was a discussion a long time ago.

As I recall;
Modified Sine wave is fine ( and cheaper ) than pure sine wave.

You need an over-rated unit to allow for start up surge.
If you want to charge several units, connect them one at a time, to avoid multiple surge requirements.

Good Luck

I was thinking of designing a 12v powered segway charger a few weeks ago but didn't bother because I thought there would be no market for one....Does anyone think there is a need for one...

I could have a prototype working in an hour or so...

probably cost $200 or so in the end

from my calcs it would draw about 5-5 not too much...

thoughts anyone????
