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?
The MP75 inverter connects to the car battery through the car accessory socket and its compact design allows it to be held securely by the chassis socket and not become an obstruction when driving. The inverter can power a device up to 56W, such as a phone or battery charger. It is highly efficient, converting 90% of its energy supply into output power. It 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, such as A71JW. A pure sinewave inverter is used to power sensitive electronic devices such as power motors, power tools, clocks or microwaves.

Are you able to tell me the power consumption of this unit at 12v? Ie. at full load it will draw (x) amps from the 12v socket? Many thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
For every 100W from the inverer, 10A is drawn from the battery.

Woud this be able to run one or more mains energy saving lamps, e.g.The N65CB 7W 2U Energy E14 , or N51CB 11W Energy GLS E27?
Asked by: Anonymous
No sorry this product does not support that.

The device I want to power will run from mains or 12V - will plugging it into an invertor drain more power from the battery than than powering the same device directly from a 12v cigarette socket?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes but not much as these are 90% efficient
