An inverter changes DC power from a battery into conventional AC power that you can use to operate all kinds of devices electric lights, kitchen appliances, microwaves, power tools, TVs, radios, computers, to name just a few. You just connect the inverter to a battery, and plug your AC devices into the inverter and you've got portable power, whenever and wherever you need it.

The inverter draws its power from a 12 volt battery (preferably deep-cycle), or several batteries wired in parallel. The battery will need to be recharged as the power is drawn out of it by the inverter. The battery can be recharged by running the automobile motor, or a gas generator, solar panels, or wind or you can use a battery charger plugged into an AC outlet to recharge the battery.

What size inverter should I buy? Short Answer: The size you choose depends on the watts (or amps) of what you want to run (find the power consumption by referring to the specification plate on the appliance or tool). We recommend you buy a larger model than you think you'll need (at least 10% to 20% more than your largest load).

Example: You want to power a computer with a 17" monitor, some lights, and a radio.

Computer: 300 watts
2- 60 watt lights: 120 watts
Radio: 10 watts
Total needed: 430 watts
For this application, you would minimally need a 500W inverter, and should give some thought to a larger one, as there will likely be a time when you wish you'd bought a bigger model, in this example, you might decide you'd like to run a fan while you compute, or let the kids watch TV.

Longer Answer: Determine Continuous Load and Starting (Peak)
Load: You need to determine how much power your tool or appliance (or combination of them that you would use at the same time) requires to start up (starting load), and also the continued running requirements (continuous load).
