An inverter charger is a device designed to convert DC (direct current) to AC (alternating current), which can be used to power electrical devices. An inverter charger can be used to power a number of devices such as DVDs, television sets, video games, laptops, pumps, video/audio equipment and lots more. They are designed to supplement power in areas and situations when power supply is not constant. They are thus ideal power supplements during utility power situations such as burnouts, surges, blackouts and too much voltage.
Inverter Chargers can be used in boats and cars. Inverter chargers can also be used with separate batteries. When they are connected to a battery, they draw out needed current from the battery, convert it to AC and use it to power any connected electrical equipment.
Inverter chargers are ideal to supplement power because of the way they are designed. When utility power is present they allow the current to pass through to power your equipment, at the same time using the utility power to charge the connected batteries. When the utility power fails the inverter charger kicks in automatically and supplies power from the charged batteries.
There are two types of inverter chargers suitable for various applications. Compact or Lightweight Inverters are relatively smaller and come equipped with capacity to produce a lower continuous power output. They are ideal for use on boats, cars, traveling trips, camping trips as well as trucking applications. They power output is ideal to power a number of conventional devices such as laptops, computers, television, video games, video/ and audio devices and many others.
Heavy duty Inverters is another type of inverter charger but these are designed to suit industrial needs. They are equipped to produce peak surge wattage to be adequate for the power needs of heavy-draw start up power needed for equipment such as pumps, saws, drills, timing motors and other industrial equipment
