Liquid Crystal Display

Light Emitting Diode display

I think the LED should use less power for a given size display but as always check the labels.

An LCD and LED are the same thing except how they are back lit. The LEDs are back lit with of course LED lights. Therefore they are much lighter, use less power and run much cooler. Most LEDs, at least the smaller ones, are 12v and have a wall wart (small converter) on the end of the plug to use house current. I have 2 LEDs in my coach, I just cut the warts off and hardwired into a 12v circuit.

You want your solar panels wired to charge your batteries, then run your 12v items from your 12v coach circuits. You certainly do not want to run a TV directly off a solar panel(s).

What you are really asking is if you can power you TV, or anything else using your house batteries and an inverter I think. The answer is Yes, provided the power provided is sufficient to power what you are using. The panels are to replenish the battery.

There is an off chance that you are asking if you can power the TV directly with DC power and the answer there is while is is possible, going through the battery's is more efficient, and the norm.

I believe a little study would benefit you, there are numerous places on the net to get up to par.

Get the model number from the back of the TV, then Google for its specifications.

My 24" LED uses about 30w @ 12v, erroring on the high side, you're probably looking at 40-50w max.
