    I'd be interested to hear from someone who is successfully running an
    electronic timer from a modified square wave inverter. Ive got 2
    jaycar inverters (200w and 300w model) and the electronic timers
    almost cook themselves within about 2-3 minutes of operation
    off the inverter (one particular kambrook timer gave off a burniung
    smell within about 10 sec of plugging it in). Im assuming it must be
    related to the timers power supply not being able to handle the
    modified square wave output. Ive tried that same thing with an old
    mechanical timer and it doesnt seem to have the same problem
    (ovbiously the mains directly drives a mechanical clock with thsee
    timers).
