    I have no idea about the capability of particular products to conducts electricity and the negative effect it will have on my car so just have a quick question.

    I have this power inverter http://www.jaycar.com.au/Power-Prod...30VAC-Electrically-Isolated-Inverter/p/MI5102. I'm going on a really long road trip and was wondering if it could power a playstation 4 and a 20 inch computer screen.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    What are the power requirements of the Playstation and screen?

    The output of the inverter is described as 'modified sine wave'. Not all loads are happy with that.

    I doubt if 150w inverter is sufficient.
    Specs for ps4 are:
    Standby mode 10 W
    Standby mode (with download) 70 W
    Idle on menu 89–91 W
    Blu-ray 93–96 W
    Netflix 93 W
    Game installation 108–116 W
    Gaming (Resogun) 130–139 W
    Gaming (Killzone) 144–151 W

    That's without a monitor. Maybe another 30/50 watts.
    As already mentioned above, modified sine wave is not very good for sensitive electronics.
    And a 300w inverter would be better.
