I have an inverter that I haven't tried yet. I plan to keep it in the car. I don't know if that's a good idea if I'll be using the inverter for a couple of hours.
I intend to use the cigarette plug with it instead of connecting it directly to the battery terminals.
I would like to know everybody's opinion.
I have a "factory" 400 W inverter in my truck. For charging a cell phone it's not much different than plugging in at home. In other words, it works great, charges fast.
As long as the 12V outlet is switched, turns off when you turn the car off - go for it. If the outlet is not switched be sure and remember to unplug it each time you turn the car off.
EDIT: Be sure and check the draw the inverter has on the circuit. Compare that to the fuse that runs the 12V outlet. I'd guess there's a 20 or 30 amp fuse protecting the 12V
