the 18V inverters were great when they were a free tool item with battery set purchase

at $60 a pop though, kind of meh for a very limited use device due to the 150W max limitation

Agree. I use mine occasionally, but probably wouldn't buy at $60.

I think of it more as back up in case of power outage. Typically, for every day use or travel the small battery packs work well and are much smaller.

I am torn too, thought it might be nice for my wife's CPAP machine in case of a power outage.

60 Watts/12 Volts= 5.5 amp draw. 10%= 0.55 amps. Total amp draws with inverter= 6.05 amps an hour.

So to use a CPAP on a battery all night, you'll need 48.4 amps for 8 hours of sleep.

Pretty sure $80 is the regular price for the 40v one.

I have more Ryobi 18V batteries than I know what to do with, so I bought this thing like a month ago for $79. Went and got $20 back at lunch thanks for posting!

Quite a handy gadget. I tested it with a 30W LED shop lamp and it lasted over 2hrs on a 4ah battery. Briefly tested the USB ports, outputs between 1.5 - 1.8 amps though the phone was more than half full when I tried it.

Complete price gouging. We see 12v inverters like these for 20% of this price...

thumbs up just for posting it as an inverter instead of a "generator"!

It's incredibly inefficient to use an inverter like this. The power source (battery) outputs DC, then it's converted to AC (by the Ryobi), then it's converted back to DC by the CPAP power brick. It's much better to just stay in DC from start to finish. Some CPAPs can accept 12v directly while others (like the Resmed) require a specific DC to DC cable. The old standard battery pack is the Freedom at $200 that will last for 2-5 nights of sleep, but there are others that can work for less money. If you're handy, you can even build your own with a scooter battery for <$100.

The 40v one is great, if you already have a bunch of 40v batteries from lawn tools.

We had some work done outside our house and I wanted to monitor the progress, but didn't have any outlets nearby. I was able to plug in a wireless ip camera and power it all day (uses about 5w continuously) on an extra 2.6Ah 40v battery. Super convenient for things like LED lights or needing a portable AC port where you don't want to drain your car battery or have to run the car. There are other USB powerpacks which include AC inverters, but rarely 300w output and if you already have the 40v batteries and changers, it's a no-brainer. (But remember that even a 4Ah battery will only power a 300-w device for about 30 minutes.)

Unfortunately, I bought at $99, but it's nice piece of mind and way quieter than running a generator.

FYI: You can power wireless ip cameras with standard power banks. I use this cable for my TP-link cameras:

This is great as a backup for operating typical CPAP machines. I bought this in case my sister needs power in a power outage. No need to get a generator, just pop in one of my many 40V Ryobi batteries.
