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?
The MP150 inverter connects to the car battery through the car accessory socket and its rugged design allows it to be secured easily out of the way. The attached cable will allow it to be positioned in a convenient location. The inverter can power a device up to 120W, such as a laptop, a phone charger or a handheld games console, for up to four hours at one time. It is highly efficient, converting 90% of its energy supply into output power. It is fitted with a 500mA USB connector to charge a wide range of devices such as compatible smartphones or GPS, while still keeping the mains socket available to power an additional item such as a battery charger. It can operate for four hours continuously and 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 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, such as A71JW
. A pure sinewave inverter is used to power sensitive electronic devices such as power motors, power tools, clocks or microwaves.
