Utilize your vehicle's battery to efficiently power office equipment on the road or power tools at a work site. Continuously supplies up to 1000 watts of 120V AC power to 4 AC outlets from any 12V battery. Includes a set of 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 175a should be positioned no more than 18" from the PV1000HF's battery in the positive line.


  • Allows users to run AC appliances from any properly-sized 12V battery or automotive DC system
  • Converts 12V DC battery power to 120V AC power
  • 1000 watts continuous output power; 2000 watts peak output power (instantaneous)
  • 4 outlets
  • Compact, lightweight design with all-metal housing
  • Remote control jack provides optional remote monitoring and control when used with optional remote module (APSRM4, sold separately)
  • Low battery alarm with auto-shutoff prevents deep battery discharge
  • High-efficiency operation conserves batteries to prolong run time
  • Battery charge level LEDs indicate the approximate charge level (high/medium/low) of connected batteries
  • Connected load level LEDs indicate the approximate wattage load level (high/medium/low) of connected equipment
  • Operating mode switch controls inverter operation
  • Battery Charge Conservation Dial conserves battery power by setting the load-level at which the inverter automatically shuts off
  • Cooling fan regulates internal temperature and prolongs service life
  • Mounting flanges provide safe, fixed installation
  • Grounding lug connects to vehicle ground
  • Grooved cooling surface provides additional surface area for more efficient cooling

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.
APS series inverters can accept and pass AC input power. They also have a built in battery charger circuit.
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 for additional information and help with selection.

Additional FAQs may be available on the PV1000HF model support page.
