Thanks for your help SUNEAGLE, just what i needed to know!!!
    Sounds like you have a plan.

    Last item to think about. While some people say their batteries have lasted them for 5 or more years that may not be true for everyone based on how their system is wired, used (or abused) and cared for. So don't be unhappy if you only get a couple of years out of even a new bank.

      I just bought a Kill A Watt 4460 just now. I read a lot of reviews of people frying these things plugging space heaters and stuff into them. I want to put it on my fridge, vacuum cleaner and other devices so I can see the real power consumption. If we had a long power outage of several days, it would be so nice to be prepared for it.
