Features

Mobile Power Inverter Charges and Powers Multiple Electronic Devices in Your Vehicle
You don’t have to be near your computer or an AC power source to keep your mobile devices fully charged and your power tools and small appliances operating. This 1000W mobile inverter converts 12V DC power from your car, truck, fleet vehicle, boat or RV’s battery into standard 120V AC power. Just connect the included battery cables between the inverter’s DC input terminals and the positive and negative terminals on your vehicle’s battery.
Dual AC Outlets Provide Portable Power for Your Mobile Applications
This compact power inverter is ideal for use at remote locations, such as campgrounds, construction sites and mobile offices. Two NEMA 5-15R outlets provide a continuous output of 1000 watts and a peak output of 2,000 watts. That’s plenty to operate a variety of appliances and power tools, such as low-power lights, camping accessories, battery rechargers for small battery-operated power tools, and mobile office equipment.
USB Charging Port Keeps Your Devices at Full Strength
The 2.0A USB charging port remains active even when the inverter’s on/off switch is set to Off. This allows you to charge your smartphone, tablet, laptop, MP3 player or GPS unit without draining too much power from the vehicle’s battery.
Includes the Latest Safety Features to Protect Your Equipment and Battery
An on/off switch offers one-touch control over both AC outlets. If the power input from the vehicle’s battery drops below 10 volts or exceeds 16 volts, the mobile power inverter will automatically shut down. Green and red LEDs indicate normal and improper operation. A load-controlled fan begins cooling automatically when the internal temperature rises to a certain level during extended use. An audible alarm sounds during excessively high or low voltage conditions.
Brackets Included for Permanent Mounting
The compact power inverter’s durable aluminum housing is designed to withstand the rigors of road trips, campouts, business trips and family vacations. Use the built-in front and rear mounting brackets and your own hardware to permanently install the inverter in a horizontal position.

  • Charge your smartphone and laptop to 100% battery capacity while camping
