can i plug a small area heater to this...

can i plug a small area heater to this plug? would it take all the juice out of my truck battery? i need to heat the back box of my truck and is separate from the heating in front and the product i deliver gets frozen quickly so i need to have a small house heater in the back, would this work for me while i'm driving with it.

This unit probably won't output enough wattage to support a space heater of any size. Look at any big-box retailer for a power inverter in the auto or electronics section. Make sure it outputs enough wattage (look for constant output, not the peak) for your particular heater and you'll be in business.If your truck is running, you shouldn't have any problems running a small space heater. If it's off, your battery will pay the price rather quickly.
