I have been running a monitor off of a 100 watt inverter(pulling 4-8 amps!) and was thinking of a simpler way of powering it. I figure, since the AC connector on the monitor goes to a bridge rectifier and filter set, can I use a 1:10 step up transformer to go from my 12v regulated circuit to my monitor? Has anyone done this? This doesn't need to be anything of permanence, just something to get me to summer; when I get my 12v TV. Any thoughts would be helpful.
