What is an inverter?
An inverter is a converter that connects to a sealed lead acid (SLA) battery that is usually connected to a car, a truck or a solar panel. The inverter can connect to the battery either through a car accessory plug or by clipping directly to the battery. A mains powered device can then be plugged directly into the inverter’s AC socket. Inverters vary in capacity and can power devices of up to a specific wattage. Inverters can be split into two categories: pure sinewave and modified sinewave.

What makes this inverter unique?
This Maplin inverter connects to the car battery directly by using the included alligator clips while being mounted out of the way. The inverter can power several devices at the same time with a combined 3000W power, such as a halogen oven, a kettle or a hairdryer. This makes the inverter ideal for mounting in a camper or while you are away camping. It is highly efficient, converting over 85% of its energy supply into output power. The inverter also includes shutdown protection to power down the inverter if the battery power drops below a certain level.

What is the difference between pure sinewave and modified sinewave?
All household mains sockets output a sinewave along the cable to transfer power from the source, such as the battery or plug to the product that is plugged in. This product is a modified sinewave inverter which produces a stepped approximation of a pure sinewave inverter which makes it easier to produce. A modified sinewave inverter can power devices such as laptops, printers and chargers, although some items may pick up interference from the inverter. A solution for this is to upgrade to a pure sinewave inverter. A pure sinewave inverter is used to power sensitive electronic devices such as power motors, power tools, clocks or microwaves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ive been using this inverter for 7 months with the remote switch. I have charged batteries for drills and other cordless tools, run a 1000w hoover and a 1200w hoover, run a small compressor and even a small fridge with no problems, I would say though that 1 small niggle is that the led on the remote is very dull and if you leave the inverter on overnight you will wake up to a flat battery, I did this once and decided to set up a split charge system to a 110amp leisure battery and now run this inverter off of that. Now the inverter does not affect me with any worries about starting my van. Oh one thing else, you do get about 2 meters of double thick black and red main leads with this aswell. You won't go far wrong buying this inverter. Maplin Moderator Note: The remote switch is sold separately, see our product code: A84HZ

Can this product run a 2200 watt jet wash? And if not which inverter do you suggest

Asked by: Alistair
Unfortunately i am sorry but the item in question doesn't support use in you intended application. You would require a Pure sinewave for this kind of item .

I see you no longer sell the remote switch for the A13HQ Inverter. Can you tell me please what the pin connections are for the remote switch so that I can make my own.

This could be an issue with the battery, I would test the product on a different battery to check where the fault is.
