NPower Expert
This pocket inverter will provide up to 100 watts of AC power so it's capable of running the 75 watt light bulb without overheating. However, there would be a drain on the vehicle's battery. The 75 watt light bulb would draw approximately 6.25 amps per hour from the battery.

answer 2
It does have a cooling fan, but I don't think it has ever come on. I use it for charging my cell phone (Blackberry), which is a pretty low draw application.

This, and all our modified sinewave inverters should not be used to recharge batteries. They are not designed for it and will damage the unit.

This would not power a coffee maker. While you would need to check your specific model, most coffee makers use 1500-2000 watts when running. Wattage is found by multiplying amps x volts.
