Hi,
I didn't know where else to ask so here goes. I'm a pro videographer and would like a portable 120v supply to power a 250-500w modeling light. This is for field work and I'd like it to have 20-30 minutes of juice (at least) between charges. I can put it in a backpack or if small enough a belt pack. My idea is to either use the 12v NiMH battery I own or get another if necessary and connect it to an 400w inverter. I guess I'd need some sort of bridge to convert the 12v DC to AC. My question is: Do you think this is doable and if not why. I'm not an electrician but know a little which is probably worse than none :001_huh:. If not doable please explain why. I suspect the current draws will be large and the battery life is probably the questionable thing here sooo..
Thanks very much for any input....
