I'm tired of lugging my generator to the bee yard and I ain't getting any younger. It's time to buy an inverter but, which one? Which inverter are you using for your vaporizer? Does it need to be a true sine wave to accommodate the digital controller? Let me know which inverter works for you.

I use a Bluetti Maxoak 150.
It has 1500 watt hours of capacity.
To run the ProVap 110 in a vard of 40 hives I use about 160watt hours.
With travel time, warm-up etc, the Bluetti will provide power for all day on a single charge.
And QUIET!!! No fumes!.
Plug it in when you get home and it's ready for another day.
Love it!:

I recently treated six hives with one of Johno's EasyVaps using the 400 watt inverter built into my Toyota 4Runner. Worked perfectly.

Generally most of the beeks who use my vaporizers use a 500 watt modified sine wave inverter which were available from Amazon for about $30, prices now have increased I am sure.
