Answer: 
Probably. 15 Amps at 240V is very high for 1HP. 15A 120V or 7.5A 240V is typical for a non high efficiency 1HP motor. You probably have a motor that can be wired for 120V or 240V. Just wire it for 120V. This inverter may not be powerful enough to start your motor though if full torque is required during start up, such as an air compressor with air in the tank. You would need about 90A surge and this Read More

Just wire it for 120V. This inverter may not be powerful enough to start your motor though if full torque is required during start up, such as an air compressor with air in the tank. You would need about 90A surge and this inverter closer to 60A. Starting this motor while the inverter is already turned on may exceed the surge power and trip the overload, even if full torque during start up isn't needed. I'm not sure if this inverter does soft start while operating. Read Less

Answer: 
I believe that this inverter only puts out 110 volts. Look on the inverters
spec's and it should reflect what the output power supply rating is.

Answer: 
Some battery powered tools are finicky when it comes to inverters and some are not.
If you've already tried using the inverter and it does not work, then it's because the
inverter you're using is a modified sine wave. You'll need a "pure sine wave" inverter
to do the job and, yes, a pure sine wave inverter will cost you much more.

Answer: 
Yes, if your power tools are AC operated and operate within the 3500 watt limits of the inverter. The same also for the garage overhead doors. Note: This inverter should not be used with rechargeable tools.

Answer: 
I can't tell by the small foto but there's one sure way to find out.
Besides looking on the box, a "pure sine wave" inverter always
cost much more than a standard modified sine wave!
The box and the inverter itself should reflect what type it is.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by truely Graet Bought it as a part of a solar experiment to run many things in my garage and has passed all my tests with flying colors October 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Inverter is what description said it was product meets advertised specs. no less no more convince was the main factor in purchasing via Home Depot online August 16, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Power Brite 3500-12 mine stopped working! after 2 years. I would buy this agian but it does not come with the schematics if it needs repairs which we all know it will some day. It would be nice if they just put it in the owners manual so it can be serviced local and not in China. August 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Buy Easy to use. Able to power what ever the better half decides to take to the field with us. June 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Must Have Device Learned from last year 2011 snow storm in NY so bought this device just in time for Sandy's storm 2012. I setup a parallel connection from 2 deep cycle batteries and using my minivan to charge them batteries and power the whole thing during the day. Use it to power 2 frigs,1 freezer and lights around the house for 2 days, stop running the car between 10:30pm - 5:00am. Spent almost 1/2 a tank of gas, roughly 7 gals. That was a bargain. The 6000W is a little bit more expensive but this 3500W is adequate to my needs. Definitely recommended. November 6, 2012

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excelant product easy to install good . needs directions for wireless wear to mount .what distance it works at overall a verry good product. March 15, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product for the price I use this inverter for off grid solar electrical system. It has worked flawlessy since installation. To use it at full potential, it really needs a 30 amp barrier strip for hardwire installations. The only caveat I found was the 12 VDC cables may drag against the case mounting bracket in some configurations causing wear on the insulation. Re-routing or shimming the connections resolves it.
