An inverter is a power converter that transforms DC input to AC output, allowing you to charge a variety of devices. This inverter connects to the sealed lead acid (SLA) battery usually found in cars, trucks or solar panels, either through a car accessory plug or through directly clipping it 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, depending on the model. Inverters can be split into two categories: pure sinewave and modified sinewave. What makes this inverter unique?
The Duracell inverter connects to the car battery through the car accessory socket. Its compact design allows it to be discretely positioned without it being in the way. The inverter can power a device up to 175W and is highly efficient, converting 90% of its energy into output power. Fitted with dual 2.4A USB sockets, it can charge a wide range of items such as smartphones, MP3 players or tablets while the mains socket remains available to power an additional item such as a laptop. The inverter includes shutdown protection, which powers down the inverter if its battery power drops below a certain level.What is the difference between pure sinewave and modified sinewave?
All household mains sockets output sinewave from the source to whatever is plugged in. Pure sinewave offers a smooth alternation in current. This product is a modified sinewave inverter, which produces a stepped alternation – which is easier and cheaper 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. To avoid interference, consider: these
