WHAT IS AN INVERTER?A Power Inverter, or Inverter, is an electrical power converter that changes direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC). The input voltage, output voltage, and frequency are dependent on design.
What does a power inverter do, and what can I use one for?
A power inverter changes DC power from a battery into conventional AC power that you can use to operate all kinds of devices… electric lights, kitchen appliances, microwaves, power tools, TVs, radios, computers, to name just a few. You just connect the inverter to a battery, and plug your AC devices into the inverter … and you’ve got portable power … whenever and wherever you need it.
The inverter draws its power from a 12 Volt battery (preferably deep-cycle), or several batteries wired in parallel. The battery will need to be recharged as the power is drawn out of it by the inverter. The battery can be recharged by running the automobile motor, or a gas generator, solar panels, or wind. Or you can use a battery charger plugged into an AC outlet to recharge the battery.
But now with Portable Lithium AC Portable Power, you do not need to set up your own battery plus inverter as above, putting yourself at risk of connecting bare wires by yourself and risk electric shock if you are an amateur. Also notice that this setup is almost impossible for mobility? The lead-acid battery alone easily weighs 10kg or more …
Now with Li-Ion Battery, you just charge it up, carry it out and BINGO… you can power up your equipment just like that, anywhere, safely, hassle-free.
