Have a look at the plug you should have something like this (Dyson handheld) printed on it. 4BD31C9D-1B88-472A-9E8D-6BD988307782.jpeg

Continuing. The important calculation is Power in Watts = Voltage in Volts x Current in Amps. So the output from mine is 26.1V x 0.78A = 20.4 Watts. This should be the power requirement for charging the device. Yours may be similar. The Ocean inverter is good for 150 Watts.

I’m afraid that calculation is not correct. You are calculating the Power Output of the plug at 26.1v.

The Dyson plug requires 240v at 0.6amps so 144 watts.
The Inverter socket is rated at 150 watts. So in theory it should work but is on the borderline.

Thanks @WelshGas. Always happy to be corrected. If the power drawn from the socket is 144 watts and the delivery to the device or power out is 20 Watts, where does the rest go? If the output is 144 Watts at 26.1 V it will deliver over 5 Amps. That seems excessive.

Thinking about it as the charger is multi voltage 100 to 240 volts maybe the 0.6 amps is for a 100v circuit making it 60 watts and a lower current at 240 volts to give the same 60 watts power requirement. In which case it should work fine unless it doesn't like the non-pure sine wave output of the California Inverter.

In which case the current required at 240 volts would be 0.25 amps.
