My wife has a dance studio and wants to put a coupel strands of some christmas lights on it and was wonderign how long could a 700w inverter pull off of a car battery (not hooked up) before the lights qould quit working. We only need it to pull for an hour - hour and a half at most. The question is should it do it?

I dont know anything about electrical mumbo jumbo, I can splice wires and thats about the extenet of my knowledge.

Well I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that if a good car battery can keep headlights/taillights on for about 8 hours and still fire up after then an hours worth of twinkly lil christmas lights is probably not going to be a problem
