A power inverter can change DC power from a battery into conventional AC power so that you can operate a lot of electronic products and appliances , which including, but not limited to electric lights, kitchen appliances, TVs or radios. Basically, you need to connect the inverter to a battery, and then plug your AC devices into the inverter and you can have power wherever you go.
Which inverter is suitable for me?
We carry many different sizes of power inverters, from 400 watts to 5000 watts (including charger and remote control). The size you choose depends on the watts (or amps) of what you want to run. (the information regarding the power consumption should be on the appliances). It is always safe to get a larger model than you think you need.
First, you need to determine the continuous load and starting (peak) load, that is how much power your appliance (or combination of them) requires to start up (starting load), and also the continued running requirements (continuous load).
For example: The terms continuous-3000 watts and peak surge-6000 watts is that some appliances, such as ones with a motor, require an initial surge of power to start up (starting load). Once started, the tool or appliance requires less power to continue to operate (continuous load)
How to convert AMPS to WATTS: AMPS X 120 (AC voltage) = WATTS
The above is an approximation of the continuous load.
To find out the approximate Startup Load: WATTS X 2 = Starting Load
This formula is an approximation of the starting load of the appliance, though some may require an even greater starting load. Some appliances, such as air conditioners, refrigerators, pumps etc may have a start up surge of 3 or more times the continuous rating.
