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 Maplin inverter connects to the vehicle’s battery through its accessory socket. The compact design of this inverter allows it to be discretely positioned without being in the way. The inverter can power a device up to 150W, such as a laptop, a phone charger or a portable games console. It is highly efficient, converting 90% of its energy into output power. It is fitted with a 2.1A USB socket to charge a wide range of items such as a Smartphone, a Tablet or an MP3 player, while keeping the mains socket available for a different device. 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 12V pure sinewave inverters. A pure sinewave inverter is used to power sensitive electronic devices such as power motors, power tools, clocks or microwaves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I've just had the second one of these fail on me. The same fault as before (unit replaced without argument by Maplins Lowestoft where I bought it, Impressed with their service). Blows the auxiliary power fuse in the truck. Don't know why? Only used to keep a laptop on charge through a 65 watt (Dell) charger. Good when working! I think I'll go for a 24v to 19.5v transformer next time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works It's a nice cheap inverter, works a treat, had it around 6 months now and never had a problem

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had them for 2 years, and had too many problems I bought 12 of these units for the business, and all of them but 1 have been a constant issue. From blowing the fuse in the truck, to melting the plugs and even had at least 3 of them cause a driver to have to stop and control the smoke pouring out of the connection because of heat and arcing. They only ever run at a max of 35w! Great shame, but I really don't think they are up to the job.

I'm looking to power a Sony subwoofer/Bluetooth speaker in my car. Would this power it when the car is running? I've read that for some people it has blown fuses...&nbsp;
