If you do a internet search for 12 volt ATX power supply you can find them as a factory built off the shelf product.@TD-Horne Holy Cow. Is there such a critter like that or is this something that one has to make up on his own?
There is a device that goes by different brand names that uses the Venturi Effect of water pressurized by a reliable public utility to draw water out of a sump and expel it outdoors. One model is the SumpJet® Water Powered Backup Emergency Sump Pump. When the water level in the sump rises past the set point a valve operated by the float opens allowing the utility water to pass through the Venturi Tube.Now, we have folks in the area who have to run sump pumps, especially in the rainy season. Those people usually have a simple gasoline generator that they can hook up is need be. For them, a few hours sans power is a big deal.
Pretty crafty.Up and running but still experimenting. Using an extension cord to use a 500W compact heater inside (not kosher) and tailgate cooked rice with an induction cooktop.
Look into the tabletop ovens, the ones used to roast turkeys. The one we have has a Low 900W setting. It bakes, fries, and slow cooks in the bottom half. They are a life saver for when holidays come or when your stove oven breaks, had that happen.300 Watts of solar (which really results in 250W+ for the most part) on top of the shell.
I will not get the truck’s alternator involved; too many reports of malfunction doing that (on diysolarforum).
We got a toaster oven rated 1150W but the 1200W inverter shut it down because it was actually 1290W; so returning it
