Hello Im looking at a way to power the 640 with an inverter. I would like to know what the the YS 640 draws watts or current wise. I under stand its a variable question ie the hotter you run it or colder it is outside the more the auger has to run, the more power it consumes. But I would like a ball park figure, if you need a setting lets say 300 deg with an ambient of 70 Deg F.

Thanks
Wayne

Approximately 200 watts at startup for 5 minutes and approximately 50 watts for the duration of the cook, no matter what the set temperature is. This is per cooker running on the battery

Sorry, I typed my response on my phone. I have fixed the post now, so please take another look.

Do the 240V export cookers have the same wattage? I'd expect them to.

Thanks

If you mean power draw, yes.

Yes, wattage is the same. 240 pulls less amps from the wall, but watts (work done) is the same. Ohms Law.

Good to know I should be able to run it off my existing inverter, if I ever want to :)
