This inverters convert the low DC voltage of a truck, mobile home, boat, caravan,… into a stable 230 VAC voltage. The inverters are available in 12V and 24V.
When you determine the right choice for the inverter, you must take in consideration that many devices such as a TV have a high starting current, which can amount to 6 to 9 times the capacity of the connected device. For a TV of 35 Watt, a inverter of 300 Watt is ok, when you also want to connect other devices like video, DVD etc., a 500 or 1000 Watt i better. To charge a laptop, 300 Watt is sufficient.
If you want to use several devices at the same time like e.g. in a camper, boat, truck, we advise you to take 1500 or 3000 Watt.
These inverters are not recommended to use devices with built-in motor (in reference to induction) like e.g. drills, big refrigerators, vacuum cleaners etc. In these cases, it’s better to opt for a pure sine wave inverter.
