I am trying to find info. on the amount of wattage that transformers use while on. I am would think that the size of the transformer would determine its usage, but so far have not found any info. on this subject. Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks of your help and to answer Riverman's question, Earlier this year, we started a small homestead on the island of Samoa. We took a generator, microwave, 12v flourescent lights and a few other kitchen gagets that run on 110watts and a frig. that would run on Ac or DC. We were not sure if or how long before we could get power. We picked up a marine battery while there for when the generator was off to keep the frig. running and for lights. Our little set up worked very well for the 5 1/2 months that we were there,but gas is very expensive there and 230w power available. We plan to return in the spring and looking for a transformer that will meet our needs, but was trying to figure out how much power a transformer would use if running 24 hours a day. We already have a small transformer that might could be of use also. This is all new to us and just not sure what direction to go. Any ideas or help would be appreciated.
