Your iPad and cellphones need DC!

It is only their domestic chargers that need AC. Look at the tag on the charger of each and then find a 12v adaptor that matches the DC output voltage, plug and polarity.

Well I charge my iPad at home off ac power, assuming I am correct. 12 volt dc battery needs to be converted to ac power some way to charge the iPad Pro. and while driving last week the plug in lighter convertor was not at times charging the iPad just the the phone thru the regular USB port

Batteries, iPad, lead acid, mobile phone, whatever need DC to charge them.

What you plug in to 110v AC at home is converted into low voltage DC to charge.

Your proposal to take 12v DC and step it up to 110v AC only to convert back to low voltage DC is not a good way to go.

okay thanks for the clarification. so what would you suggest for me to buy with the dual battery that I could hook up a multiple outlet usb strip. Thanks again for your time.

Bought that last week.

Why wouldn't this work for your cell and iPad?
bought one like this last week. But with the one usb-c and one regular USB port. and wouldn’t charge the ipad at times. Also even if it would. I still need another cell power cable, sat communicator and a beats pill + with usb to lighting or usb to usb-3

thanks again for your help

but that’s pulling power from the cranking battery. I would prefer to have the power coming from the secondary battery.

Cut the plug off and hard wire to your second battery (which, I assume, will be connected using a voltage sensing relay).

Solder all joints!

Just mount a honda generator in the back and you’ll have all you need

Great thanks this is what I was trying to figure out. I will have a pro do it so its all connected correctly while using a voltage sensing relay. Thank you for your time. This will def do the trick
