I don't understand how using a three-prong adapter can cause serios injury or death. The third prong would not even make a connection and the system is fully overload protected. Perhaps someone in the know can chime in and provide a reason. P.S. Never used an adapter on it however was thinking about it since I have a laptop adapter with the three prong plug.

I just bought a Shumacher 400W continuous inverter from Wal-Mart for $40. It's going under the seat and will power anything I expect to pwer in my truck. If I need more than that I'll just drag out my generator.

many companies make 12V DC to 115V AC inverters
they can be purchased at
Best Buy, Sears, Office Depot, almost all Auto Parts stores, etc.
