How about my draw saw that is 1400w  

Yes, after posting I remembered I use a saw a lot too, and that's both more of a load and a heftier motor. Not many battery ones around either. :(

and to answer you yes they only draw full power under load. think of a lorry at idle little fuel at full load lota fuel. Not meaning to insalt you just sometimes I find it better to relate.

At the end of the day, I just don't have the usage to make it worthwhile. Maybe a small set-up one day for lights only. First, I need to build the place! Then see how much I really need lights.
