We have been looking at buying an inverter 500w plus which obviously come with the crocodile clips. The cables appear very short- has anyone overcome this to fit the inverter under the drivers seat? Pics/suggestions would be a great help

hi there

ive come accross this problem too,the two thick cables on my invertor can be unscrewed im thinking of buying a set of jump leads they come in various sizes and cutting off the crocodile clips so i have cable of a similar diameter and tracking down new ring connectors so i can reconnect back to the invertor and battery i think this will do the job its the way im thinking of going anyway, hope this helps ally
This is what we have currently got:


Is this the kind of thing you were thinking of?


Stumbled across these pics of the same inverter as ours when trying to work out how to fit it. We bought an 800w inverter today from argos reduced to £54

thanks for all your comments, even I was concerned about the cable thickness in the 2nd pic and would definitely not go for something like that. It does have a built in fuse, not sure of the size without going out to look. It will be fitted to the main battery not a leisure one as usually stay on sites with mains hook up.

I think we might make do with the short cables, and could we then use a standard extension cable to run a socket to behind the drivers seat? Can anyone confirm where the "grommet" is that we would use to run it into the cab?
