If we are going to talk about high frequency radiation, let's forget about the cars and start talking about how much it could affect our health in a horrible way.

Hey Scotty, is it possible that having one of these plugged in 24/7 could have caused the battery light to turn on? My wife's car has it on, I got the battery checked and replaced the alternator but after 2 days it came back on

Thanks to Scotty, now ride a horse.

So you're saying there's a chance that if I unplug mine that my transmission temperature light will not keep popping on during the summer in my 2006 Dodge Dakota.....................

Those power inverters have loads of interference they are spraying all over the power system. Some may have some input filters but you can’t tell from the box.

I love watching your videos and to keep my phone charged a new car charger would help out on the long car trips in our Nissan Rogue

Thank you soooo much for these informative videos

scotty is da man!

Would the power inverter run a lawn blower to dry the car off after washing at the car wash?

Everything is a wave. "Gravity" is a ridiculous term for lack of buoyancy in a water world. Mysteries solved 🙃

Those radio transmitter type adapters have jammers to clean up the frequency of your choice. They do a wide range to make sure the existing station doesn't cause white noise. I only use these adapters to listen to tunes on my phone through the radio, since it's a base model pickup its only got radio and roller windows.

I'm probably not having problems because 05's don't have much for RF sensors or controls. I've heard horror stories of some trucks that have RF gas pedals, so I'll be installing a proper aux charger and headphone jack on any new truck anyway.

How many amps does a cigarette lighter use anyway? That's what you can safely draw off your car, right?
