It sounds as if I'll be able to draw continuous amperage from a battery (or batteries) needed to sustain 1000watts. I'll take a look at the threads you've attached for more information. Do the deep cycle batteries you use offer a continuous amperage spec? Otherwise, I'm not sure I understand how to calculate sustained watts. Can you suggest a 12v and/or 24v deep cycle battery?
Also, would a 120amp hour battery supply approximately 120,000 milli amp hours?
Most lead acid batteries are rated for a 20 hour discharge cycle, so based on that, you can only pull 120/20 or 6 amps out of one to get the rated 120 ampere hours. As a wild guess, if you discharge the battery in 3 hours, you might get 80% capacity or so. That would be 120/3 or 40 amperes.
You are correct, 120 ampere hours is the same as 120 times 1000 milliamperes per ampere, or 120,000 milliampere hours.
