Yeah! I remember those commercials from back when I was a kid watching Saturday morning cartoons in the '70s.

Jumping on the pile...

If you like your coffee maker... then clearly the answer is to lower the alarm setting. And try not to microwave any popcorn while brewing your joe.

The OP is dry camping using the inverter for the coffee maker

Why are people posting about powet cords to the pedestil


Options, always have options, and the journey goes much smoother

By page 4 most threads are completely off topic because the question has long since been answered. And RIF.. many don't bother to read carefully.

Really? You've actually seen that? Please give me just one example!

May I suggest you consider a stove top coffee maker?

Hi,

Six volt jars don't like the rate of discharge so they exhibit voltage drop. Try monitoring the voltage while running the pot. If the batteries "bounce" back in voltage after the load try 10.5 volts on the inverter.

The real solution is two more batteries.


x2. According to trojan, if you are drawing more than about 50A 12V batteries are much better. much lower internal resistance= lower drop, and since they are paralleled, each battery supplies 1/n the current. So each bank off your 6V is supplying 75A, to much, a bank of 4 12V would have each supplying 35A much better and the internal drop would be much less than 6V. You've just found the weak spot in GC batteries. Great for low current draws, not good for high current.

real solution for coffe is a "Areopress" no fuss, no mess, just heat water on the stove, pour into areopress, stir, use the press. equal or better coffee than a french press w/o the grounds mess to clean up.

and, I'd guess just about the same amount of time, and takes up way less space than the electric single cup solution.

I would love an aeropress, but I haven't seen one that can do more than one cup at a time. Still... there's been one in my Amazon wish list for quite awhile now.

Don't generalize. Some 6V's are widely used in off grid homes (never heard of a 12V used on an off grid home). Maybe not the T105's but L16's are widely used. There's more than one type of 6V or 12V battery.

2oldman - stove top coffee maker IS the solution to the OP's problem, not an offtopic... All he wants is making 1 (one) cup of coffee. And is trying to do this through inverter. Time to let it go ...
