Inverter

Anyone have a idea of how big of a inverter is needed to operate a 32 inch tv

Look on the back by the plug. It should tell you the rated volts and amps. Add a bit for start up. If it is a flat screen probably not much.

Good question! May be the only thing I would want the inverter for, that and the CD player.

I chose the Samlex 300 watt inverter for $156. It is a pure sign wave inverter and I have found my TV's run cooler using this inverter vs the inexpensive non-sine wave inverters. This does not mean the lesser inverters are no good, just personal preference. My though is that you might want to add more devices to the inverter down the road, be it a computer, fan or other device and it would be nice to have the extra wattage. In the past 6 months, the Samlex has operated perfectly.

I use a Duralast 500 watt inverter that I bought from AutoZone for $99. Even though I have a 5,000 watt AIMS industrial inverter, I see no sense running it when the small unit will work for the need at hand.
I've heard from some folks that they don't think a modified sine wave unit works well. Being an electronics tech, I've personally not seen any problems with any of the MSW units I've ever used. All my electronics work fine and there is no noise in my TVs or problems with the computers. That's just my personal experience.

I have a 60" Sony LED at home and it draws during use 167 watts and per the book a 32" LED would draw 90W. LCD model would draw a lot more; but most TVs made and sold now are LEDs; I believe.
