I'd like to occasionally be able to use a 1600W hairdryer for ~10 minutes. Maybe once a week, but only ever after a significant drive (and hence a well-charged starter battery.)
My starter battery is a 95Ah 12V lead acid battery. The inverter I'm looking at buying is pure-sine 2000W continuous (4000W peak.)
The alternator in my van (a Mercedes Sprinter) declares itself to be "14V / 180A", though I suppose that won't be a continuous 180A.
If I start the engine, switch the inverter on, and then use the hairdryer for 10 minutes, what is the expected outcome? Will it work? Will the van still start next time I crank it over? Will the lifespan of the battery be reduced, and if so how often might I expect to have to replace it?
