Adding an inverter gives me the opportunity to use electrical outlets for small wattage using items (i.e., coffee pot, toaster, small chargers, etc.) without running the generator. Depending on the wattage of the inverter determines what other items you'll be able to run without the generator. My plan is only for small wattage items, thus, only a 1000W inverter. I hope this helps.
