Car Generator Parts List

The following list is the parts you will need to convert your car into a generator. The highlighted items can be bought through Amazon at a significant savings. The items not highlighted are best sourced locally to add even more to your savings!

–If you want to buy these items through Amazon and support this website and YouTube channel, I have placed the links for each item in this equipment list. –I thank you.–

  • 1 Plastic tote. Best bought locally. I can't tell you how important it is to have the equipment needed, where you need it, when you need it. If you keep the needed items where they are supposed to be and never use anything out of it until a power outage, you don't have to be concerned about having the equipment when you need it to turn your car into a generator. If it's kept in a single tote, it will be in one place and will take only a few minutes to have lights, a police scanner, weather radio and a small TV on and running so you can be informed of an evolving disaster.
  • 1- 410 watt Schumacher power inverter. I suggest the Schumacher power inverter because they have a proven record of excellence in design and function. I suggest the 410 watt inverter because your vehicle can only produce so much power from the alternator.
  • 2- or more extension cords. You will need enough extension cords to run from your vehicle into the house. The longer the distance, the larger gauge cord you will need.
  • 4- 2.5 watt LED light bulbs. This the size bulb you will want to use most of the time in order to conserve power. Buy these at Wal-Mart. They are much less expensive!
  • 1-  5.5 watt LED light bulb. This brighter bulb is for the rare occasion when you need a brighter light.
  • 2- small LED flashlights with batteries. For the times you need to venture into parts of your home that doesn't have lights.
  • 2- LED lanterns with batteries. For when you need to venture out side to check on your car or home.
  • 1- LED rope light. LED rope lights can light up a hallway and 2 rooms.
