I've seen them go for as low as $24 but that's pretty rare.
You can search Ebay for PURE SINE WAVE POWER INVERTER 300/600 WATT if you're interested.
A modern 27" LCD TV probably would run on a 50 watt inverter but they don't typically make them that small in pure sine wave models.
My TV came with the rig and it puzzled me why they don't just make them
straight 12v to begin with.... It's a jensen that is made for RVs.
Maybe I am confused,,, but ours is a 12v Jensen ???
Plugs into 12v in a cabinet above the entry door,,,
