Default 110v Power Outlet Options / USB Leaf Blower Recommendations?

Hi everyone,

Hope all is well.

I have a 2019 Colorado.

Anyone have any inverter recommendations, so I can have a 110v power outlet by plugging into the cigarette lighter sockets or USB port?

Anywhere else I can make the connection? Anywhere in the bed or by the trailer wiring work?

Sucks our trucks don’t have 110v power outlets!

Also, where are all of our USB ports and cigarette lighter sockets? Only the two ports and one socket lower center dash?

ALTERNATIVELY:

Anyone know of any USB powered leaf blowers that can do 140 mph / 500+ CFM?

Thank you very much and happy trucking!

No you will not find a USB powered leaf blower. USB is meant for charging phones not running tools and appliances.

What do you plan to use the inverter for? The cig socket limits you to about 60W. Anything more powerful will require a direct connection to the fuse panel or battery.

Thanks for your most prompt reply, mountainmanjoe!

Argh; annoying.

Inverter for similar to this:

Similar or slightly less powerful (also corded).

Any particular inverters come to mind, and is this even feasible with plugging into the cigarette lighter for same?

Thanks again!

Sorry about that, I need to find a corded one, but one with similar mph / CFM.
