Answer: 
Modified. The output is a 3 step square wave, or modified square wave as most "modified sine wave" inverters sold today are. There is a middle step where the output is shorted to 0 Volts which makes it different than a square wave inverter. This inverter appears to have a fixed duty cycle of about .75 and internal voltage regulation. Many other inverters or at least nearly all of the smaller ones don't Read More
Modified. The output is a 3 step square wave, or modified square wave as most "modified sine wave" inverters sold today are. There is a middle step where the output is shorted to 0 Volts which makes it different than a square wave inverter. This inverter appears to have a fixed duty cycle of about .75 and internal voltage regulation. Many other inverters or at least nearly all of the smaller ones don't have any voltage regulation and vary the duty cycle of the 3 step square wave to regulate the voltage. When the input voltage goes low the inverter reduces the middle 0 Volt step to increase the apparent AC output voltage. This inverter doesn't do that so it's one of the best you can buy without going to pure sine. Most AC motors should not be run on a square wave but a 3 step square wave is usually acceptable.

Answer: 
This a "Modified Sine Wave" AC output. All lower priced high-capacity DC to AC inverters will be this... A "True Sine Wave Inverter" will be ~ 2x the price for any given wattage output. What is the difference? "Modified Sine Wave" is basically a "Square Wave" output AC, which is to say the output goes from 0-volts to the full rated output volts in a straight-up line to 60-volts AC, then back down to Read More
This a "Modified Sine Wave" AC output. All lower priced high-capacity DC to AC inverters will be this... A "True Sine Wave Inverter" will be ~ 2x the price for any given wattage output. What is the difference? "Modified Sine Wave" is basically a "Square Wave" output AC, which is to say the output goes from 0-volts to the full rated output volts in a straight-up line to 60-volts AC, then back down to below 0-volts or "Negative" 60-volts, for a combined 120-volts Output. The advantages of Sine Wave over Square Wave are numerous: More "Efficient use of the output"; Ability to run any AC device that you would plug into your home AC outlet (some devices will NOT run properly or at all on Square Wave, such as many refrigerators, etc) and a "cleaner" AC voltage with less RF noise which is generated by the Square Wave Generating circuits. Generally, just check with device manufacturer to see if device(s) in question are "Square Wave" compatible. They probably will say that it may or may not operate "AT ALL" or "AS WELL" on Square Wave AC output, but for the most part, MOST devices including most electronics there days WILL run ok on Square Wave DC to AC Inverters due to the increasing quantity of Solar systems being installed. The advantage to build a device to run "OK" on Square Wave AC is that for all the the "WELL-OFF" or EXPENSIVE SOLAR SYSTEMS, the inverter WILL be "Square Wave" and device manufacturers now consider this in their component designs.

Answer: 
No, this is a Modified Sine Wave inverter so not good to use on certain electronics like tv`s and computers and not as efficient either.

Answer: 
If you need 240 Volts, chances are you're looking for a split phase inverter than can power both phases of a North American building so that your 120V and 240V devices can all operate on one inverter. This inverter doesn't do that, so be sure to search for split phase if that's what you need. A pure 240V inverter can't produce 120V. The only option to buy a transformer to convert the voltages.

Answer: 
A typical vehicle will supply 400 to 800 Watts at idle with the accessories turned off. So your average load can't be higher than this or you'll run the battery down. But one car battery isn't enough to really make use of all 6000W even momentarily. More like half of this is all you can make use of from a car with a single battery

Answer: 
I use this in my solar panel setup so the sun recharges the batteries. Any power that is used through your inverter from the car battery will drain the car battery unless you recharge the battery by running the vehicle.

15 Amp Duplex Outlets?

This question is from 12 Volt DC to AC 6000-Watt Power Inverter
Asked by

October 9, 2016
I know that this unit is a split unit (3000w per unit) and each unit supplies (2) of the outlets. Are these 15 amp independent outlets or are they Duplex outlets? Can I tie both outlets of the same 3000w unit together to power a 30 amp recteptacle?

Answer: 
There should be terminals for permanent installation which will supply the full amperage of the unit. You should use that instead of the regular outlets. The only thing that is split is that two outlets are supplied by 12 AWG wires and the other two are supplied by another set of 12 AWG wires.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! This is the second inverter that I have purchased and they both work great! I run seamless gutter machines off of them and it beats having to run a generator. I would highly recommend this inverter! July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Total Waste of Money This inverter worked great, for the first year, although it came with only one set of cables and it requires two sets. After the first year, the display light started dimming until it was completely gone. Not a big deal, I could see how charged the batteries were from the CC. Then one of the outlets stopped working. Not a big deal, I could work with only three of them. Then, after only 1 1/2 years, it stopped working altogether, BIG DEAL!!!!!. I have shopped at HD in store and on line many years and have always received quality products, but this was a BIG,BIG disappointment!!!!! September 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works great The 6000 watt inverter that I purchased was used to run a water well pump in a remote area of our property. We replenish the battery voltage with solar panels. The only issue we have is we wished it had an easy to integrate timer system so the well could fill a water tank while we are away from the property. June 26, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works well, i can run averything in my rv, +. my rv is a 30 amp. the 50 amp power inverter haves plenty of power. running on 4 6volt golf cart battery's. October 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MichaelG Leakey, TX 78873, USA 45 to 54, Male ,use a plug in timer in line with well use an inline timer with the well and it will tun off and on for you. October 27, 2013
