    Default Can a Foodsaver be used with 12v inverters?

    I'd like to be able to vac up my fish on some of our longer trips. Can a basic model unit run off an inverter? What size inverter should I look for?

    Should be fine if you have a large enough inverter. Wattage = amps x volts so look at the amperage draw on your Foodsaver, multiply it by 120 and you will have how many watts your inverter needs to be. I'd go about 1/2 again what you need just to cover the slight spike when the unit turns on.
