Inverters utilize the DC power source and convert it to an AC power source. In essence, we can turn the DC power source (plug-in) in your car into a standard wall outlet. They achieve this without sucking all of the energy out of your car battery while you are driving. Since most smaller electronics require more power than a DC source can provide, the inverter increases the signal strength and makes it convenient to use devices such as computers in the car.
What Devices Can You Use With an Inverter
Inverters are useful on long road trips, for camping, for people who travel for business, truck drivers, and anyone who needs more power in the car. Any electronic device that requires an AC input requires an inverter. Some examples include:
● DVD and Blu Ray players
● Game systems
● Catalytic heaters
● Cooking equipment
● Power tools
Different Types of Car Inverters
We carry two main types of car inverters:
● Modified Sine Wave. Produce a modified sine wave that will accommodate most consumer electronics, so they work well in a lot of different applications.
● Pure Sine Wave. Produce a sine wave that is more similar to a wall outlet. Most consumer electronics will work with a pure sine wave. We can test it with any electronics you want to use.
How do We Hook Your Inverter Up?
The easiest way for us to hook an inverter up is to directly plug it into the cigarette lighter or a 12v accessory socket. There are some limitations to this type of setup. We can also hook it up to the fuse panel or directly to your car battery. Once you bring the car into our service center, we can determine the most powerful and safest way to hook the inverter up to the car.
Keep in mind that a car inverter can only handle so many electronic devices at a time. In most cases, inverters are limited to a five or ten amp draw. In heavier duty applications, we’ll need to connect the inverter to the fuse panel or directly to the battery. The kind of inverter you get and how we connect it will largely depend on your needs.
