• 1000W continuous output to power a range of household appliances
• Modified sinewave output to power laptops, printers and chargers
• Two 240VAC mains sockets to power products without additional converters
• 12VDC power from two alligator clips connected directly to the battery
• Weighing in at 4.15kg, the rugged metal design (300 x 198 x 80 mm) is mountable so that it can be positioned without becoming an obstruction
• Shutdown protection against power overload
Connect your home appliances to a car, truck or solar panel
This Maplin 12V 1000W 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 12V 1000W 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.
Power a range of appliances at once
This Maplin 12V 1000W Inverter connects to the car battery directly with alligator clips and can be mounted in a suitable position without being obstructive. The 1000W inverter can power several products at the same time up to a combined maximum of 1000W, such as a television, an induction hob or a laptop, making this inverter ideal in a camper or while out camping. It is highly efficient, converting over 85% of its energy into output power. The inverter includes shutdown protection to power down the inverter if the battery power drops below a certain level.
Charge your laptop or printer
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.
