PowerVerter® 1800W Compact Inverter with 4 Outlets
Model Number: PV1800HF
- 12V DC input; 120V AC output; 4 outlets
- 1800 watts continuous output
- 3600 watts peak output (instantaneous)
- Powers an entire mobile office
Utilize your vehicle's battery to efficiently power office equipment on the road or power tools at a work site. Continuously supplies up to 1800 watts of 120V AC power to 4 AC outlets from any 12V battery or automotive DC source. Includes a set of nut-and-bolt style DC terminals for simple installation. Compact, lightweight metal case design is among the smallest, most rugged inverters available at this power level.
NOTE: To protect against high current draw that may occur during inverter failure, a fuse link rated at 250a should be positioned no more than 18" from the PV1800HF's battery in the positive line.
- Allows users to run AC appliances from a properly sized 12V battery or automotive DC system
- Converts 12V DC battery power to 120V AC power
- 1800 watts continuous output power; 3600 watts peak output power (instantaneous)
- 4 outlets
- Compact, lightweight design with grooved surface for efficient cooling, all-metal housing
- Diagnostic LEDs indicates low battery voltage level and load level
- Low battery alarm with auto-shutoff prevents deep battery discharge
- High-efficiency operation conserves batteries to prolong run time
- Cooling fan regulates internal temperature and prolongs unit service life
- Ideal for powering microwave ovens, dishwashers, coffee makers, refrigerators, electric grills, clothes irons, televisions, video game systems, stereos, small window air conditioners, sump pumps, flood lights and small- to medium-sized power tools like drills, disc sanders and chain saws
NOTE: Your load should not exceed your inverter's maximum continuous output power of 1800 watts. To determine your total load, add the wattage ratings of all equipment you will connect to your inverter. Wattage ratings are usually listed in equipment manuals or on nameplates. If your equipment is rated in amps, multiply that number times AC utility voltage to estimate watts. (Example: a drill requires 2.5 amps. 2.5 amps × 120 volts = 300 watts.)

[FAQ-777] What is the difference between the HF series and FC series inverters?
Because they are able to support an overpower situation for an hour, FC series inverters are better suited for industrial or heavy-duty devices. HF series inverters are not capable of supporting overpower situations for more than 500 milliseconds.[Last Updated: Mar 23, 2009]
