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 inverter connects to the vehicle battery through either the accessory socket or by connecting directly using alligator clips. Its compact design allows it to be discretely positioned without being in the way. The inverter can power a device up to 300W, such as a laptop, a Tablet charger or a portable games console. It is highly efficient, converting 90% of its energy into output power. It is fitted with a 500mA USB socket to charge a range of compatible items such as a Smartphone, while keeping the mains socket available to power an additional item such as a battery charger. The inverter 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 these which are connected to 12V. A pure sinewave inverter is used to power sensitive electronic devices such as power motors, power tools, clocks or microwaves.

Is the fan thermal controlled or does it run continually?

Asked by: Gareth
The fan will start with the unit, but the speed will be thermally controlled.

hi this says it runs off 24v, does that mean you need to connect to two sets of terminals from a standard 12v lead acid car battery?

Asked by: james
This means the item would need to be connected to a 24 supply, If you are using 12 battery's our advice would be to use a 12v inverter.

will this power my laptop?

Asked by: trev
Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee full compatibility for this item in your intended application as some laptops will not run form a modified Sinewave inverter.
