Difference between a Low-Cost Power and an Expensive Power Inverter

by Helen Jack Major in Power Inverter

To convert DC power to AC, finding a power inverter USA may seem simple, but for your power inverter use when you start searching for, you'll soon find that many choices will confront you. It becomes difficult to know what features are important with prices ranging from less than $25 to well over $1000 and how to select a unit according to your needs.

Items that need to be taken into consideration are which wattage you need and how you will be connecting the unit to your power source and the inverter's wave form output is another item that you should take into account. Two usual power inverters types are there: true or modified-sine wave. The power that is either equal or sometimes slightly improved is produced by the True-sine wave inverters to power from the power grid system of the public utility. In the market modified-sine wave and square wave inverters are the most common types of power inverters. Modified-sine wave power inverters produce a power wave that for most devices is very much sufficient. When viewed through an oscilloscope it has a waveform appearing as a squared-off wave.

Maximum customers who are using an LF power inverter to run an a/c cell phone charger, fan, laptop, or camera observe that a modified sine wave power inverter that operates through a socket can be used. It becomes difficult to know what features are important.

While using the 12-volt cigarette lighter socket found in most vehicles we usually suggest choosing power inverters USA that are rated fewer than 300 watts. We suggest this because the fuses in your car will begin to blow after reaching 300 watts of the draw on the inverter. On the market, there are several units available that are powered between 100-200 watts that plug directly into the cigarette lighter of a vehicle. Only one outlet is present in it, but since plugging it into a 12-volt socket is all that is required for operation, it can't be beat for ease of use. Usually, these little units supply around 150 watts of continuous operation and normally have a built-in surge protector.
