We definitely have plenty of sensitive electronics along, but it sounds like the "inverter" is only beneficial on battery power right?
That's correct, it uses your battery (DC) power and magically turns it into AC so you can use your microwave etc if you want. I don't really like to use an inverter so as not to drain the batteries. If memory serves the advantage to using a pure sine wave inverter besides having a prettier picture on an oscilloscope is perhaps for better performance for sensitive electronic devises.
