How big of an inverter do I need to run an air compressor?

Square wave inverters are very difficult to operate. It takes about 12 DC Amp to run 1 AC Amp after taking efficiency and voltage into account. If you have a 10 Amp compressor, you need at least 120 Amp draw from the battery or 120A x 12VDC.
