About this product


Product overview

• 5000W continuous output to power a range of household appliances
• Modified sinewave output to power laptops, printers and chargers
• Two 240VAC output sockets to power several devices without additional converters
• 12VDC input from the battery using included alligator clips
• Weighing 10.8kg, the rugged mountable design (500 x 169 x 152mm) allows the inverter to be positioned out of the way
• Shutdown protection against power overload

Connect your mains devices to a car, truck or solar panel
This Maplin 12V 5000W 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. This 12V 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 multiple devices at once
This 12V inverter connects directly to the car battery using the included alligator clips. The inverter has been designed so that it can be mounted out of the way while powering your devices. The twin mains sockets allow you to power several devices at the same time up to 5000W, such as a microwave, a halogen heater or a television, allowing you to take your home comforts 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, printer or charger
This 5000W inhverter is a modified sinewave inverter which produces a stepped approximation of a pure sinewave inverter, making 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.

Hello, assuming this inverter it works at full capacity (5 kw output), what is the minimum A/h (12v;10A, 20A,40A,......etc) it needs to operate efficiency

Asked by: miran
This would depend entirely on how long you would like it to run for.

Wood this inverter be enough to power a 1300w coffee machine?

Asked by: Fatzak
this is a 5000W inverter so would be fine to use a 1300W item with it, however we do not recommend using items with moving parts on a Modified Sinewave inverter.

I have recently bought the maplin 5000w A59LZ inverter. I've noticed it has a plug point for remote control. Do you sell the remote? If not, where can it be purchased ?

Asked by: Dht1970
On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.

is a 5000w modified sine wave inverter enough to power a coffee machine,and a bean grinder? both 13 amp each, thanks

Asked by: benny1
No as 13A at 240v is 3000w.

Would this inverter be safe to run a standard camping fridge constantly and (all night) whilst powering other items such as small plasma, laptop, phone, various LED lighting and a radio? These wouldn't be on all the time. 5000watt is a lot, is it too much

Asked by: Rich
5000w is the max you can power with the item, Running items all night would depend on how much battery capacity you had and the total draw of everything you are using, without this information we can't advise.

Will this inverter power a small 50 Ltr compressor . And a air conditioning service machine and what warranty dies it come with&nbsp;

Asked by: Johnny c
Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee full compatibility for this item in your intended application I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. You would need a pure sinewave and not a modified sinewave . In short Modified-sine-wave inverters are relatively simple and cheap products that generally will use battery power more efficiently than pure-sine-wave inverters. Only basic products such as normal lights bulbs and induction or shunt motors can safely be run on a modified sine wave. Pure-sine-wave inverters require many components and therefore come at a higher cost. They produce current that is close to identical to that of grid AC, making them perfect for running sensitive electronics. If in doubt as to whether your appliances can run on a modified sine wave, always check with the manufacturer. All our products come with a 12 month warranty in place unless stated otherwise.
