2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Cargo Area AC Outlet

February 7 , 2014

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

So last night it was my turn to cook. I'm a fan of sugar meat so I made pulled pork for sandwiches. Took the slow cooker to the dinner spot knowing full well that the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe has an AC outlet in its cargo area. Figured I could use that combo to warm dinner before it was time to eat.

No such luck.

Turns out, the outlet is rated at 150 watts and the slow cooker draws 240. Not even close. I should have known better. I'm yet to find any useful electronic device with power demands low enough to be functional when plugged into these low-power outlets. Even small car vacuums don't make the cut.
