I bought a 400w max/800w peak black and decker power inverter to run my xbox from my car. it comes with a cigarette plug, but when i turn my xbox on, the little breaker trips turning it off. is this too much power going to the cigarette plug? do i need to run a bigger power/ground straight to batt/ground? thanks!

Most cars come with 10A max cigarette lighter ports. If you do the math 12.5v x 10A = 125w.
Therefore, you will need to treat the inverter like a car audio amp, separate power lines with proper fuse.
