sometime ago I purchased from a mail order cataloque a 12volt LCD TV which was advertised as suitable for caravaning. This came with an adaptor to use on 240volts. The first few times I used it I was on electrics and it worked well. However I then learnt that LCD TVs did not like more than 12volts. I rang the manufacturers help line to be told that under no circumstances to connect to the battery only to use the ac adaptor provided. The mail order people did not want to know as I had had it too long, although they have altered their advertisement. I have tried to obtain a suitable regulator lead without success. So should I risk connecting it to my battery ,which could be as high as 13/14 volts or keep it for when I,m on electrics? any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
I've run my lcd tv for years using only the caravan battery and a solar panel with no problems to date, but it's your call as it's your tv, it looks like the dealer is covering his back just in-case it goes pop when you plug it in.
To save my battery in my van i use one of those power stations, the thing that has an air compressor, light and jump leads on cost around £20-30.00. I have an invertor from Aldi which plugs into the cig lighter thing on the front of the power station and then plug items into that to run e.g. tv, computor, even on occasion my travel kettle. These power stations give around 20-30 hrs of Use and you just plug them into the car cig lighter unit to recharge them when you go out for the day in the car (takes about 2hrs to recharge). Just a tip from my non elec rally days
