• 240W continuous output to power a range of common household appliances
• Modified sinewave output
• 240Vac output to power a product without additional connectors
• 12Vdc power socket and battery clips to allow a simple connection with the car’s battery
• Weighs only 625g and its compact design (115mm x 180mm x 55mm) prevents it getting in the way

• Shutdown protection against overloadWhat 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?
The MP300 inverter connects to the car battery through either the car accessory socket or by connecting directly with alligator clips. The inverter can power a device up to 240W, such as a laptop or small television. It is highly efficient, converting 90% of its energy supply into output power. It is fitted with a 500mA USB socket to charge a wide range of devices such as a compatible smart phone or a dash cam, while still keeping the mains socket available to power an additional item such as a battery charger. It also has 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 A71JW. A pure sinewave inverter is used to power sensitive electronic devices such as power motors, power tools, clocks or microwaves.
