DC voltage TV's and Computer Monitors at Best Buy.
In my effort to run an off grid, inverter-less system, I have been on the hunt for common appliances and electronics that use a brick to convert the AC power to DC. My samsung 32" TV is only AC and must go, However in previous months DC powered 32" and above TV's were only 720p, hard to find and expensive. Today I went to Bust Buy to pay my CC bill, so I figured I'd shop around. I noticed two 40" TV's by westinghouse the higher price was 1080i and both have a 19v DC input. the cheaper is 720p I think. This is a wonderful find for me as I had considered running a small inverter just for my TV. I seldom make impulse purchases, so I headed to the computer monitor section. Last time I looked here was mid summer and all of them only accepted 110V except maybe 1 or 2 smaller ones. Now they are all set up to operate off of DC power. 12v, 14v, 19v, and 20v. I am very excited to be able to run DC only and also have a big screen TV and high quality computer monitors. I am open to running an inverter in the future, I figure I will like to run it as little as possible. I will post here after I purchase and test, any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
