Heating devices can be a real power hog when doing the maths to try and figure out potential power consumption. My recommendation, boil water on your propane stove and use a French press to make the morning coffee.

No... you are not misunderstanding. It was me that made the blunder. The difference between AH@120 volts and AH@12 volts is crucial, and I had simply ignored/omitted it.

If I had followed my own advice about paying attention to units, I would have caught the error. My bad.

Thank you all! This was the first thread I read while sipping my coffee. It was very enjoyable. Didn't learn a thing but sure smiled the whole way through it!!
