My laptop charger (85W) causes the inverter to shut down immediately when I connect it. I suspect that the reason may have something to do with capacitors in the laptop's power adaptor drawing large initial current - triggering a shutdown? I would like to think that the 800W inverter is more than large enough for the task, barring the fact
