7. Solar powered Ice Maker using a Tesla battery and showing you need a 700+W inverter

This shows my solar powered house powering an ice maker.

We check the power needed and, while it shows the ice maker only uses about 80W of power when making ice, it needs an initial surge of about 670W to start the compressor that freezes the water.

This means you need an inverter capable of generating at least 670W of power to be able to use the ice maker.

Previous videos show how the solar powered house is set up.

Do ask if you have any questions.
