What is a power inverter?

A power inverter is a device that converts low-voltage direct current from a battery to standard household alternating current. Inverters allow you to operate electronics, home appliances, tools, and other electrical equipment using electricity from your car, truck, or boat batteries or from renewable energy sources such as solar panels or wind turbines.

The inverter provides you with power when you're "off the grid" so you have a portable power source you need wherever and whenever you need it.



What is the purpose of a power inverter?

Simply put, a power inverter provides AC power when an outlet is unavailable or impractical to plug in. This could be in a car, truck, RV or boat, at a construction site, in an ambulance or ambulance, at a campsite or in a hospital mobile medical van.Inverters/chargers can power your home during a power outage to keep refrigerators, freezers, and sump pumps running. Inverters also play an important role in renewable energy systems.


How do I choose a power inverter?
·First of all, determine how many watts of electrical power you want to bring and how many watts the starting power reaches
·Second, look at the voltage of the battery you connect to.
Such as electric drills, refrigerators and other general inductive loads, such as 500W electric drills, the starting power is 3 times the normal use power, that is, the conversion power of 1500W inverter is calculated as 90%. enough, the peak power is generally twice the rated power.
If the battery voltage is 12V, an inverter with a corresponding voltage of 12V and a power of 1000W should be selected. Such as: 500W water pump / water pump, pumping water as soon as it starts, and the full load starting power reaches 7 times, that is, 3500W, it needs to be equipped with an inverter with a rated power of nearly 200.


Type of power inverter
1. Household inverter
If you need emergency home backup power because your home suffers a power loss during a thunderstorm, hurricane, or severe winter weather, an inverter/charger helps keep essential appliances running. Hisoler's inverter options include up to 6000W model.
2. Mobile power inverters for cars, SUVs and vans
A 12V cigarette lighter in a car or truck can be used with a small portable inverter to provide power for charging cell phones, tablets, laptops, DVD players, light tools and other devices. Offering one or two AC outlets, these mobile inverters are a great option for family road trips.


What size power inverter should I buy?
We have power inverters in many different power models and support OEM/ODM please see our inverter page for the specifications of each of our models.


Simple answer. The size you choose depends on the watts (or amps) of what you want to run (find the power consumption by referring to the spec plate on the appliance or tool). We recommend that you buy a larger model than you think you need (at least 10% to 20% more than your maximum load).
