UPS vs Tiny Inverter - efficiencies?
I'm back! Anyhow, I'm back and I've got another question for you guys. In the process of our family discussions the subject came up about the efficiencies of inverters, and one that nobody seemed able to agree upon was how efficient a standard APC UPS is VS an equivalently sized portable inverter (the kind you'd stick in the lighter socket on your car). I'm not thinking about the kind like we use for solar and wind power dc to ac conversion, as those are super super efficient. I'm thinking just an off the shelf office or personal use version of the two items I mentioned. In short, which is more efficient, and by how much? Many thanks on answering this as Google wasn't very helpful.
