Sizing Up An Inverter
Choosing the right power inverter can be confusing. To find the appropriate inverter, determine the watt draw of your device. The inverter you select should have an output of 110-120% of the watt draw of the device, to compensate for energy loss in transferring from DC to AC.
A power converter is a great option for portable AC power. Our inverters allow you to connect to a 12V power source – from a car outlet or a battery – and have the energy converted to 120VAC available through a three-prong outlet. Run your computer in your car, set up a printer, or use the power for a portable TV or radio. You can also use an inverter as a back-up power source during inclement weather.
