Rep: 10 kurite is on a distinguished road
Default Electrical outlet limit?

Hello,
my family rented a town and country for a road trip and there is a power outlet in it. I was wondering, can I connect it to a power strip and run multiple computers/phones off of it or will that drain the battery?
Thanks!

110 volt? Likely the power outlet is good for about 15 amps. Running one laptop is about all you could expect.

the owners manual will talk about what you can expect from it.

Run too much off it and you'll just blow the fuse.
