Customer Questions & Answers

Could I have it always hook up to truck battery?and not have it drain batt? If in off mode? I want to mount in truck cab

To charge my makita battery's..
Asked by: Andrew
I measured 0.45 Amps at rest. It doesn't have a power saver. I know at least 3500W and 6000W models do have a no load power saver that makes the no load draw close to .1A. 0.45 Amps for 24 hours is 10.8 Amp hours out of your battery in a single day which is probably around 80 Amp hours total. You don't want to discharge an engine starting battery any more than that or its life will be significantly shortened. It'll be all the way dead in only 8 days.

When I checked output voltage, it is 90 vac, not 120 vac, is that ok, if it is why?

Asked by: jim
You're using a sine wave calibrated meter. An AC averaging or better yet true RMS meter is needed to give a proper reading of a modified square wave. Reading 3/4 of the actual AC voltage is typical.

Can it run a small fribge?

Asked by: DM
It sure can. If it has defrost, 1100W is probably enough for defrost but you should check. 1100W / 115V = 9.5 Amps. Check your fridge.

Can I use it for my sump pump?

I need a back up for Sump Pumps during power outages at several properties. I was thinking of a deep cell battery in the basement and connecting the Inverter to the battery. If a power failure happens, the tenant is instructed to plug the sump pump into the Inverter. I realize I can purchase a Sump Pump back up kit or a gas generator, however this seems to solve the issue. I would purchase 3 Inverters and perhaps a stronger model. This is not a money issue so I would appreciate your recommendation. Am I wrong? Please advise. Joe
Asked by: Joe
1/4 HP sump pump should be fine. I noticed with this inverter that it tends to shut off before reaching full load when a 1/3 or 1/2 HP motor is used on it and the motor is loaded down. It has to do with the 3 step square wave output causing the motor to draw current spikes near the ends of the square waves which trips the overload shut down. Of course it depends on the motor. My assumption is that high efficiency motors (lower Amp draw per horsepower) would cause this problem to be greater. Sump pumps range from 5 Amps 1/2HP high efficiency to 11 Amps 1/2 HP low efficiency horrible power factor pumps which put all that water cooling to use! Other inverters seem to be less sensitive to this current spike shut down thing.

12 Volt DC to AC 1100-Watt Power Inverter is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I used it to run my Rockwell compact saw > rated 120v 5A > this inverter cannot start this saw !... I used it to run my Rockwell compact saw > rated 120v 5A > this inverter cannot start this saw ! > checked the batteries ( 2 large and one half size battery in parallel) voltage is 12.6V and inverter just trip into overload. Saw only made 1/2 a turn and inverter shutdown ! I have a Black and Decker inverter that is rated only 500W > it can start my Rockwell saw with no problem. It trip only when I really sawing heavy lumber. No happy with this inverter design. It is over spec. (not truely 1100W/2200W peak) and under perform.

The fan did not come on even once. Since the inverter capacity far exceeds the need of the pellet stove, is this the reason the fan did not come on? Or is there a possible problem with the inverte

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for remote barn site. Ive only had it up for a week but works good so far. Im in Texas so we have plenty of sun. I have one 100 Watt Grape solar panel hooked up. I started with 12.9 volts on battery and leave invertor on 24/7. I have noticed that the input voltage from battery and solar panel is down to 11.4 volts in the morning. Still monitoring to see if I will need another panel. I do have two floresent lights (4x32w bulbs) and two 60 watt lights hooked up so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Motorhome T.V. use So far so good. Able to watch T.V. after hours when my generator cant not be used in camp ground after Quiet hours. No problum to run Sat. Dish, Two T.V. and dvd player.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from well made but not work I purchased this inverter mainly for my 650w microwave oven to heat up my leftover for lunch. I had it hook up to a large deep cycle battery with gauge 4 cable which also hooked up to the truck's battery, It displayed 12.7v on the build in meter, I was able to turn on the oven for the 1st day that I tried it out but the next day the oven stop in the mid way and the 3rd day . the oven would not start at all, The inverter took more than 45amp when it worked with the truck engine running . it displayed 680w on the display.. I than changed a new battery, same thing, the oven had power but it would not turn on .well, it is a nice made unit but it has to go back to Homedepot .too bad. The return experience was good. I think it is nice to purchase from Homedepot online it was simple and easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised Nice that it came with battery cables as many of inverters require separate purchase of cables. Powered cable modem, router, and lcd tv without incident.
