Default Portable battery powered A/C outlet?

Hi,

I'm trying to find an affordable battery powered outlet for my bike. I'm going to use it to power a set of 2.1 speakers for 2+ hours in a parade. They output 40 watts, so I assume the consumption is somewhat less. I need the unit to be light so it doesn't weigh me down, and I only need 1 outlet to power the speakers. The speaker plug is a 2 prong American outlet.

Any help is appreciated
- Luke

Just clarifying, when you say bike you mean pushbike?

Tbh you may be better off either getting a portable stereo set, or getting a set that doesn't require mains input.

Maybe get a Bluetooth speaker? They normally come with a aux so can plug in as well.

If you really need a battery, look at GoalZero.

Otherwise I'd recommend something like the UE Boom. You can hook multiple of them up to one sounds source
