Use your home appliances from a truck, car or solar panel
This Mapliin 12V 600W 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. 

Charge your smartphone or laptop
This Maplin 12V inverter connects to the car battery directly through the included alligator clips while being positioned in an unobstructed position. The inverter can power a device up to 600W such as a small television, a DVD player or a gaming laptop. It is highly efficient, converting over 85% of its energy into output power. It is fitted with a 2.1A USB socket to charge an additional device such as a Smartphone or Tablet. The inverter includes shutdown protection to power down the inverter if the battery power drops below a certain level.

Power laptops, printers and chargers
This 12V inverter  is a modified sinewave inverter which produces a stepped approximation of a pure sinewave inverter which makes it easier to produce. As a modified sinewave inverter, this Maplin 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.

 

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We brought this inverter to Malawi, Africa to start our home after our honeymoon in the UK. We have 3 to 6 blackouts each week that last for 2 to 4 hours. We use the inverter together with a car battery to watch tv, use our fan, computers, charge our phones and light our lounge and kitchen. We bought a car battery charger here in Malawi to charge the battery when lights are back on. For the last 5 months, our inverter has been a great and cheap solution to our power problems. The fuses blew once but they were easy to replace even here (same as for saloon cars - 10 amp), I changed them myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I run a community allotment project in Sheffield, and as our plots have no mains power, I ordered the lower-powered 300 Watt version of this last year. It worked a treat for charging power tools, mobiles and laptops, but always complained when I tried to power a slow cooker from it. I saw this 600 Watt version was on offer, and immediately bought one. Well, it works a treat! Now our ever-hungry volunteers can share a meal at the end of a hard day's digging! This, to us, is a brilliant bit of kit, and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been running one of these for over 12 months. I live off grid and it powers everything, lappy TV DVDR CF lights, well good ones anyway, even satellite broadband and the fridge in summer when the solar is good. It runs 24/7 and is running a little warm now but that is because I am stretching it. I am here looking for an upgrade but thought the new low price for this was a steel. Don't let cheep put you off these are great ... Its a pity they wont parallel, I would just buy a second unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The staff at the Wrexham Branch were very helpful, I chose this for camping trips to run laptop and more, because it connects to the battery I don't need to leave the ignition on. I connected the inverter to battery and ran out a long extension and powered my 17" screen laptop no prob, and an airpump for inflating airbeds. Didn't get hot or start fans, an excellent bit of kit. It will pay for itself in the long run. Light to carry and well made and easy to set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this six months ago with a 60W solar panel/ controller and 125AmpH leisure battery. It provides all the electricity for my house in France, 4 bedrooms, lighting, satellite TV etc. I just replaced all the bulbs with low energy ones, the solar panel keeps the battery topped up. Perfect, no electricity bills and all for under ??200 the lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most inverters say will not power printers! This one said it would, and it will!! Got this to print off things on the move, with a laser printer. Works so well. The only down side. If you leave it on, it will drain the battery too far to let you start your van! So, do not leave it on. This is a very good bit of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We have been running our off-grid home in Spain with this unit for over 4 years (24/7). It has never missed a beat and is perfect for our lights, tv, laptops, blender, phones, internet. Not big enough for the washing machine or hoover, but there's the genny for that! I would add that I don't think it's the most efficient in power management, but for the price it's a great unit and it's done us well being 100% in use every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought one of these over 5 years ago on sale and it has been fantastic. I bought it to use in my garage where I had no power. I used it to power the lights and my tools and the battery would last for hours with constant use. It has safety overload protection which simply blows an easily replaceable fuse. I have used this for emergency situations and has been great for all these years. I thoroughly recommend this item.

i'm using a 12v 22ah leisure battery, these managed to cause my 300w inverter to overload or overheat, would this Inverter run of my batteries?

Asked by: yousane
If your previous 300w inverter overloaded/overheated then the device you were trying to use on it was probably drawing more than 300w. All the battery size does is determine the amount of stored power you have at your disposal.

I want to run a 240v central heating pump is this inverter suitable

What does the EuP switch actually do?

Asked by: Slogger
The EuP switch will detect whether an output is connected when inverter detects no electric product connected, the inverter will go to standby.

Can I use this to run a Paceman Pro Bowling machine

Asked by: Big John
This is doubtful ... firstly the Paceman incorporates a motor, to use any device that incorporates a motor you would need a PURE SINEWAVE inverter. Also there is no specification for the wattage draw of the Paceman .. if it's 600w or less it would be fine, but you definitely need a PURE SINEWAVE inverter not a MODIFIED SINEWAVE inverter.

Possibly not as it's a modified sinewave, so may not be suitable.

Bought this inverter, but when I connect it to a battery it beeps in blocks of 4 beeps and the warning light is on. This is not in the instructions. Tried it on second battery and it is doing the same. Is this a fault or am I doing something wrong?

Asked by: Anita
Sorry but it's impossible to offer any form diagnostic information without knowing what exactly you are trying to power, typically beeps are an indicator of overload or low battery power. Questions area is not an ideal location for such an inquiry could you please email full details to technical@maplin.co.uk and we will endeavour to assist.
