I can't find a passport battery that is reasonable and they are rarely available. Is there any reason I couldn't run the Passport 150 off of a Marine Battery and a 700watt converter. I've seen guys run fender guitar amps off this kind of set . Do I have to worry about frying the passport with this set up

God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.

I use a 12V car battery with mine, but I did get the Fender Converter. That setup works fine for me, but I don't know about going with a different type of converter.

If you want to use a standard Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) battery with it, then make sure you get a pure sine wave inverter such as this one:

The key is that it must be a pure sine wave inverter. Modified sine wave inverters, which are more commonly found and are much less expensive, can damage electrical equipment.

We went through a lot of this when Ike came through. Some of the generators do not put out pure sine wave power. These will really mess up your computer.

What is that thing Michael? What do you plug into what in order to use that piece of equipment?
