Comments about Tripp Lite 150W PowerVerter Ultra-Compact Car Inverter with 1 Outlet:

This product is what I expected or wanted when I ordered it. It has a very low battery drain on your car. I have COPD and I love to go fishing, but was unable to because I have to take breathing treatments and no way to run my machine. Now, I can go fishing and take my treatments when needed because of this unit.

Sleek, Lightweight, Dependable

By Catman

from Tucson, AZ

Verified Buyer

Comments about Tripp Lite 150W PowerVerter Ultra-Compact Car Inverter with 1 Outlet:

This unit is superb in every way. We use this to power a laptop or charge our batteries for impact drivers. The unit is super light weight and allows traveling with this a breeze. The dependability is top notch. Always carry extra fuses in case your device pulls more power than the unit puts out.

Comments about Tripp Lite 150W PowerVerter Ultra-Compact Car Inverter with 1 Outlet:

I use this to power a Sangean Table Radio from my Jump Starter during a power failure as I like listening to the news reports. Just the right amount of power required and runs quiet (no fan noise). I would recommend this to any one. Nice and compact. Easy to use. Dependable product!

Awesome travel resource

By Roberto

from Austin, Texas

Comments about Tripp Lite 150W PowerVerter Ultra-Compact Car Inverter with 1 Outlet:

After a lot of research and asking around, I opted for the PowerVerter. We were driving to Colorado and back and needed a way to juice up the laptop without stopping at a diner somewhere along the route to charge it back up. The PowerVerter worked perfectly and it has become a permanent fixture in my car. It's compact, easy to use, and best of all, it does the job without fail.

My Power Inverter

By Irv

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Tripp Lite 150W PowerVerter Ultra-Compact Car Inverter with 1 Outlet:

I haven't had the opportunity to use my power inverter, yet. I store it in my mini RV/conversion van. It gives me so much peace of mind to know that I can power my CPAP if I can't find a plug in.

Works well

By Frost

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite 150W PowerVerter Ultra-Compact Car Inverter with 1 Outlet:

I've had this unit for several years, and it continues to work well. I've tried other inverters, and they tend to quit working rather quickly. I use them to run air cleaners in my car as I have very bad allergies year-round.

Great Idea To Carry One In Your Car

By dt67ie tidtykjcghj743

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite 150W PowerVerter Ultra-Compact Car Inverter with 1 Outlet:

I have carried this in my car, and it has been great to have. it is way less expensive than the car power adapter HP sells for my laptop & it powers it very well, with the added benefit that I can use small 120V appliances (& my Dremel rotary tool) in the car without having to run an extension cord out to the parking lot from my apartment. I have done work on the car, including soldering with this. I suggest everyone carry on in their car, and one in each car if you have 2 or more.

 Yes, we offer Pure Sine Wave Inverters. Visit our Inverters product category and filter for Pure Sine Wave Output.  A pure sine wave inverter produces a smooth, sinusoidal AC output with a low level of distortion for better performance. A PWM (Pulse Width Modulated) Wave inverter produces a multi-step AC output that approximates a sinusoidal AC output with a higher level of distortion.
APS-series inverters include a built-in battery charger. See our Inverter Buying Guide on tripplite.com for additional information and help with selection.
