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 3000 watts of 120V AC power to 4 AC outlets from any 12V battery or automotive DC source. Includes a PV remote and 25 feet of cable. 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, two fuse links rated at 250a each should be positioned no more than 18" from the PV3000HF's battery in each positive line.

Purchase with confidence

By OffGridGuy

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite 3000W PowerVerter Compact Inverter for Trucks with 4 Outlets:

I have used this inverter every day for a year and a half to run my home. I have had people visit my home with no idea that I am operating off my Tripp Lite PV3000HF. All my major appliances are gas but, I run a full size washing machine, lights, computer and satellite dish with a 73" TV and surround sound all at the same time. On hot summer days it easily runs my 110v heat pump to cool my home while I enjoy my big screen TV. I find it pretty awesome that this unit runs my drill press and band saw to construct more frames and mounting hardware to build more solar panels from scratch for my off grid system. I had purchased a generic 3000/6000 watt inverter and killed it on day one. The replacement lasted three days. Money wasted. I come home after a 16 hour shift with no doubt that when I turn on a light ... IT COMES ON! I push everything I own to the max and Tripp Lite has held up to the abuse I have thrown at it. I could go on and on but it is late and I have to get up at 4:00 AM to work another 16 hour shift but... I will wake with the confidence that my Tripp Lite will get me up and going long before most of my neighbors have any idea whether or not the local grid has held up to the same expectations.

Nice on the job power.....

By Door Hanger

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite 3000W PowerVerter Compact Inverter for Trucks with 4 Outlets:

Have had one for 10 years that I have used on job sites that had no power. Also used it to charge my cordless tool batteries on the way to jobs. Finally gave out and had to replace it. Got the same thing so that should tell you what I think of it. Would like to think that it would last at least twice as long but what does any more. Good on the job power. Just wish it lasted longer for the price.

Excellent product

Comments about Tripp Lite 3000W PowerVerter Compact Inverter for Trucks with 4 Outlets:

Excellent inverter, powered my microwave and TV in travel trailer. Used around house to power shop tool's and auto polisher/buffer's, used polisher and buffer simultaneously, power to spare. Will come in very handy when boondocking in travel trailer, not having to run noisy generator is a big plus.

By JusFlynLow

Comments about Tripp Lite 3000W PowerVerter Compact Inverter for Trucks with 4 Outlets:

I really love this product. I drive long haul and this product has been great for me as i take my own food with me and it allows me to have a microwave and refrigarator in my truck. I also can run my vacume cleaner an things like my hair dryer. I have had no problems with this product . I have tryed others in the past and they just don't last like tripp.lite products do. I would recommend this to anyone that just wants to buy one inverter and have it last. Thank you Tripp.Lite for such a great product.

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.
