Re: D/C to A/C Power Inverter

no doubt bro.

Watts = Amps X Volts. You need to know the voltage drop across the resistance.
Volts = Amps X Resistance to find the voltage

some inverters that carry heavy currents look like mini steel suitcases- lol (well old ones do)

The inverter uses a modified sine wave (not a pure sine wave which is used in the typical home power network). The 115v inverter is rated for 150 watts of maximum power with built in protection if the circuit is overloaded.

Re: D/C to A/C Power Inverter

^^^ thanks buddy!!! that's the info i was looking for!!! + rep i couldnt find this info anywhere on the net!!!

i'm sure its a modified sine wave since pure sine wave inverters are really $$$...

is it difficult to install a inverter in the center console where the stock ones are already installed?

any diagrams on how to take it apart? i found one at pep boys that would be perfect and even comes with an on and off separate switch

Re: D/C to A/C Power Inverter

I just got a power inverter for my jeep online. It is good considering that it gives convenience to me since I don't have to look for a shop where I can charge my laptop whenever I travel long.

Re: D/C to A/C Power Inverter

Bumping an old thread, but looking at picking up a 400W/800W peak power inverter tomorrow. What I would like to do is install it in the rear somewhere off of my 4Ga power wire for my stereo and run wired to a separate plug somewhere in the front (dash, center console, under seat) so I have access to the plug up front but don't have it connected directly to the unit.

What do you recommend for the type of wiring and the type of plug to do this modification safely? Trying to avoid just having an extension cord sitting under the seat too, want it to look like a factory option.

Thanks!

Re: D/C to A/C Power Inverter

well you could use a power strip which would look way better than a extension cord they make some pretty classy looking power strips these days. as far as getting it back to the inverter to plug in youcould purchase the shortest outdoor type extension cord and cut the ends off of both the power strip and the ex. cord. Solder connections to join the two wires togeather use shrink tube and tape to finish it all off. hide it all beneath the carpet With the minimal amount of power we are talking about no way this type of connection is unsafe.
