How do I get my LCD monitor to run on 12V? Answered

My LCD computer monitor normally runs on 240v (Australia) but it was running during a power “brown out”, so is it maybe passable to run it from 12v without opening it (Imeen power it via its mains power cable)?

Or would a standard inverter work? And what kind would I need?

Power info from back 100-240v~ 1.2A

Yes you need an inverter. Try to find one that is listed for computer use.

Yep, you could use an inverter for that - The power supply is rated at 288W (that's V x A) so you should really use a 300W inverter to be on the safe side, although the monitor is unlikely to be anywhere near that.
