Utilize your vehicle's battery to efficiently power appliances, small electronics and office equipment on the road. Continuously supplies up to 700W of 120V AC power to 3 AC outlets from any 12V battery. Featuring an ultra-compact, lightweight design with metal housing, the PV700HF is the most rugged inverter available.

NOTE: To protect against high current draw that may occur during inverter failure, a fuse link rated at 125a should be positioned no more than 18" from the PV700HF's battery in the positive line.

Key Features

  • Provides 120V AC power for a variety of mobile applications
  • 700W continuous output power; 1400W peak output power (instantaneous)
  • 3 AC outlets
  • Ultra-compact extruded aluminum housing stands up to the toughest environments
  • Cooling fan lengthens inverter service life & maintains cool operation
  • Integrated mounting feet assure safe fixed installation
  • Low battery alarm/shutdown detects low battery voltage and shuts down inverter
  • Overload alarm/shutdown detects wattage overload on inverter outlets and shuts down inverter as a protective measure
  • DC input terminals provide a solid connection to battery with user-supplied cables
  • Lighted on/off switch shows inverter operations in cramped or dark environments
  • Grooved surface for more efficient cooling

Typical Applications

  • Ideal for powering laptops, televisions, video game systems, stereos, fans, battery chargers and other small, portable electronics

NOTE: Your load should not exceed your inverter's maximum continuous output power of 700 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.)

Doesn't work with ps4

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite PowerVerter® 700W Ultra-Compact Inverter with 3 Outlets:

I have had this product in my company fleet vehicle for about 8 months now. It is reliable and keeps my laptop and cell phone charged. I tried to run a TV and ps4 off of it today and it wouldn't support my ps4. It would turn on but as soon as I tried to start a game, it shut off. Overall, a good product but I wish my ps4 worked with the inverter.

Compact unit does the job

By

Comments about Tripp Lite PowerVerter® 700W Ultra-Compact Inverter with 3 Outlets:

Overall this has been a reliable unit for recharging appliances on the many camping trips I take. The highlights are its compact size and light weight. I didn't give it five stars because there are a couple of items I'd like to see addressed in future inverter designs. The 3-prong outlets are too close together for a variety of appliances that have the clunky square boxes at the end of their recharging cords. I'd also like to see Tripp sell a wiring kit for this for connection to a 12-volt car battery. Not sure if they have since I purchased mine but I ended up having to head down to my local auto parts store to complete the system. Still these are minor given the reliability this unit has provided.

PV700HF Mounted in Work Truck

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite PowerVerter® 700W Ultra-Compact Inverter with 3 Outlets:

The PV700HF is mounted on the front lower portion of my work truck dash connected through my 12 volt cigarette lighter power outlet. I rely on this inverter to keep a number of electronic devices charged for use at remote locations in Nevada. I also connect with an extension cord in the field when I have longer periods of use. The inverter has been with me to many rugged locations and has never had any problems. I have have gone through several cheaper inverters that just did not hold up under the conditions I routinely find myself in while performing my work as a hydrographer .
