PV1800HF


Overview

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.

This is my emergency " off the grid " power source.

By Jerry

from Centerville, UT

Comments about Tripp Lite 1800W PowerVerter Automotive/Truck Inverter with 4 Outlets:

I mounted it in the top tray above the marine battery which is mounted in the bottom compartment of a tool tote. I have a trickle charger for maintaining the battery and solar panel when home power fails. The PV1800 HF is the heart of my above mentioned project.

We've used this product for several years. Always been a good product. What I would call a workhorse, nothing fancy, no display, just works.

Works Great

By AKtripper

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite 1800W PowerVerter Automotive/Truck Inverter with 4 Outlets:

Bought this unit 2 years ago for a six week road trip to Alaska. Used it to power a small freezer for ice, frozen meats and food, and to preserve the fish we caught in Ak. Made coffee in drip coffee maker every day and powered microwave and lights in camper. Kept laptop charged plus camera batteries, etc.. Worked great no issues. Now I use it as a mobile power supply in my pickup and as an AC back up if needed. Should have bought one years ago.

Superior Power Without Voltage Drop's

By dwexpress

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite 1800W PowerVerter Automotive/Truck Inverter with 4 Outlets:

I have 2 of these units and they are excellent and reliable. The primary one is used in my over the road tractor trailer operation. I have a 6 plug outlet surge protector used on only one of the converter plug-ins and can run my microwave, corded vacume cleaner, my notebook computer, printer, and TV all at the same time with no voltage drop or tripping the overload protector on the converter and at the same time plug in my 1/2 inch electric drill or reciprocating saw while outside working on the truck and no power loss at all. These units are highly recomended by me and seem to hold up to very high usage without working a sweat, great device. I would say i would buy another but these seem to be so reliable i'm not sure i will ever need to. You ROCK TRIPP-LITE.

Best value for the dollar

By captaineagle

Comments about Tripp Lite 1800W PowerVerter Automotive/Truck Inverter with 4 Outlets:

I use this inverter in a motorhome. It works flawlessly, and produces absolutely no lines on the TV or any interferance on the radio. It powers the microwave, coffepot and all the other accessories in the motorhome. While driving I use it to power the refridgerator so that I do not have to have the propane turned on.
It works as advertised and is almost as good as a pure sine wave inverter.

Comments about Tripp Lite 1800W PowerVerter Automotive/Truck Inverter with 4 Outlets:

Powered 3 fullsize refrigerators and a sump pump flawlessly for 2 days straight during Hurricane Irene on a full tank of gas in my Toyota Highlander without the annoying sound of a generator. Very pleased and impressed with the quality and power of this little inverter. Highly recommended...Thanks Tripp-Lite.

Frequently Asked Questions

FC-series inverters are able to support an overpower situation for an hour, so they are better suited for industrial or heavy-duty devices. HF-series inverters are not capable of supporting overpower situations for more than 500 milliseconds.
 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.
