    Search Amazon. Get more than you need. They are often optomistic in thier power out put.. cables good thick battery cables, or starter cable, thick jumper cables,. Welding cables.

    I have a Cobra 2250 it's old, it trips 1800 to 1900 watts for longer than 20 secs. Amazon was 100 cheaper than truck stops.

    I have an old 3k watt Coleman pure sinewave. Paid $100 for it at a pawn shop.

    Xantrec is the best inverter on the market. It was factory installed in my 2014 Volvo and works very well. It is a pure sine wave inverter, which means it gives the same electrical current as if you were at home on the grid.

    The tiger claw has been a great pure sine wave inverter for the price. Sigler music sells it

    Why are you thinking 1.5kw?

    Get something oversized for the future.

    By the way, there are only a couple inverter what are unique and worth the effort to get, one is Xantrec, invest in something good, the others are more or less branded Chinese junk unless they are older ones, nothing wrong with use.
