I guess this came to mind when Vic said he had one and I was wondering if this is the type of range top used? I would just assume these units must suck up a lot of amps and was wondering what the draw was to this over using the propane? Are they worth it (as I am 260 watt with two BB batteries = 200 Wh) I also have e-bikes to recharge as a priority.

I found this unit on a thread on a social media.... what is the most efficient unit?

That’s the one I have. 200AH of BB batteries feeding a 3000w pure sine wave inverter. 1800w induction sucks 165A out of the batteries.

Boiling two kettles - 1.5L - takes about 40% of the batteries. The boil really fast. Only my camp chef Everest propane stove - 20000 BTU - is as fast.

Advantage is no flame/condensation inside the camper.

Disadvantage is you need lots of daily recharging opportunities and options

I have an induction on my van. Does use a lot of juice, but will be going to 600 amp hr of Li. They are instant in boiling water, but sometimes gas would be nice. If battery is low I need to start the generator and would rather not.

You were right. 600 aH IS getting carried away.  But 6000aH/100aH/battery==>60 batteries. 60 BB batteries * 31 lbs/battery ==> 1860 lbs. may be an order of magnitude issue. :eek:

 

My Hawk weighed 1463 lbs FOB from factory. Must be on a trailer. If I put 60 100 aH BB batteries in my camper, there would be no room for my wife or me. 

 

I'm sensing a math error or typo somewhere. Although, math is definitely a weighty subject. :D
