Answer: 
This is pretty much standard procedure. Turn it off when not in use. Start the truck each hour to charge the truck battery if you are using the inverter for a long time with the engine off.

Answer: 
The inverter will draw current whenever it is connected to 12 volts. It will eventually drain your battery. If you have a load on the inverter, the size of the load will determine the length of time it takes to drain the battery.

Answer: 
One other thought is to install an in-line switch or disconnect between battery terminal and unit to allow easier power management of unit when needed. This should allow you to separate unit from battery so it only draws power when you want it to.

Answer: 
The unit will always have at least a minimal energy draw when it is not being used and nothing is plugged into it. At rest the unit pulls less than 0.18 amps which is 2.16 watts. The only way to eliminate the energy draw completely is to disconnect it from the battery.

Answer: 
This is a power inverter to convert 12 vdc to 120 vac. it is not a supply that you can charge and keep the loads plugged in after it is removed from the 12 volt source.
it supplies 1100 watts continuously when connected to the 12 volt source.

Answer: 
The unit provides 1100 watts, and has 2 AC outlets, as long as your computer is less than 1100 watts you should be fine. The unit does not store any energy it only converts it from 12 volt to 110 volts. How long it lasts will depend on your battery setup and recharging capabilities.

Answer: 
The output voltage with no load should be no lower than 110 volts. If it's a normal load of 600 to 1000 watts the voltage should not drop below 105. If this is under surge wattage for a short time, 10 seconds or less, 90 volts is O.K. -- for a few seconds. If it's at no load or normal loads you should check the voltage at the Battery with no load. Is the battery good, 12 volts to 12.2 volts. Is the Read More

Answer: 
If you measured without a load, it may be 90 vac. It should be 110 to 120 volts with the rated load. You should measure it with the rated load to be sure.
90 vac is Ok no load.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best deal for the money. After shopping around, I found that Home Depot had the best price and power rating for the Inverter that I needed. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by real good product works very good will buy another one later may a bigger one April 5, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by incomplete rated for 1100 watts. Works fine at approx 500 watts. I haven't put it through it's paces yet. The battery cables are too short. The instructions say to install a switch on the positive connection to the battery and to ground the unit to the chassis of the vehicle. If that was to be done the switch and the grounding cable and clamp should have been included. They weren't. And it wasn't an oversight because the packaging list did not list them. At $80 (before tax) the price seemed good until I found a 2000 watt inverter at Harbor Freight for only 25% more money. June 11, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fills a niche perfectly between economy and high performance Purchased to use small home appliances while camping. So, far have used 1500 watt blender. The wattage gauge tells you exactly what it is doing. Making a fruit smoothie without ice, it fluctuates predictably between 700 and 900 watts. The fluctuation and only one group 24, 550 amp hour battery caused me to have to run the engine to prevent low voltage shut off. Not a problem with something that only takes a couple minutes. Have plans for 1000 watt hot plate or 450 watt rice cooker but have not tried yet. Suspect might need 2nd battery in many situations. However, forget and leave it on with no load on it, it only uses a tenth of a volt all day. February 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nice item tried to run coffee pot ,not large enough. runs tv,small fan . also won't run my nu wave cook top April 1, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value So far I've not had this long enough to tell how it will last in the long run, nor have a tested the efficiency vs. others, since this is the only inverter I have, but I did test it with different load while hooked up to a deep cycle battery, and it performed as expected. I think the price is right and the built quality of the unit that I got seems to be good. It's not super light, but I don't expect it to be. So far I'm happy with this inverter and I think it provides good value. February 18, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great features, but defective product received. I purchased this product because of the advertised specs. The 1100 / 2200 watt power ratings met my requirements and the addition of the Voltage and Wattage meters were perfect. I also liked the idea of the external fuses. The only problem was that the unit I received was defective. I initially noticed that the meters were not accurate. I then began to notice other problems with the unit. This is when I decided to return it to the store and exchange for another one. February 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Inverter Runs smooth with little draw off the battery. Great value... Would definitly reccomend this inverter... December 9, 2014
