Usage Guide

How do to determine which inverter or Transformer to buy?

 

 

To select a Power inverter or Transformer that has enough power for your application, add the watts of items that you may want to run at the same time. Use the total wattage, plus 20%, as your minimum power requirement.

Note: Appliances specifications vary from brand to brand. Check product label or manual for actual ratings. This guide should be used as a reference tool ONLY, we cannot be held responsible for differences in wattage of your devices.

 

 


* Appliances and tools with induction motors (marked * in tables) may require from 3 to 7 times the listed wattage when starting. The start-up load of the appliance or tool determines whether an inverter has the capability to power it. Be sure to check the specific wattage requirements and operating instructions for appliances / tools to be used. Also, air conditioners are a very difficult load because of the high start-up surge. Use the Locked Rotor Amps to determine the startup surge requirement.

If your item doesn’t list the wattage and only the Amperage use the following conversion formula:

 

 

Watts ÷ Volt = Amps or Amps x Volt = Watts
