Click here for our guide to Inverter usage & help Choosing the correct Inverter

Indicates Modified Sine Wave Inverters
Modified (quasi) sine wave inverters are more than adequate for the general requirements in boats and vehicles. There is still the odd appliance such as washing machines where quasi sine wave inverters simply do not work, but all in all they do a great job considering their cost

Indicates Pure Sine Wave Inverters
Pure Sine inverters remove all problems linked with quasi sine inverters such as small black lines on some TV screens. Works satellite controllers, runs microwaves at 100% power, works thyristor controlled devices. The 3000 watt unit will also run a standard washing machine and all thyristor controlled devices which cannot be run by quasi sine.

If you are unsure about which inverter you need, check first with the manufacturer of your item or call our sales team.
Always make sure the inverter you choose is powerful enough to run your appliances Eg, a 150W appliance would need at least a 200W inverter.



What inverter do I need to power my device?

This is intended only as a guide to the type of appliances that can be powered using the various ratings of inverters available. - ideally you should check the power rating that is marked on the appliance you intend to use. Also note that some appliances will draw power when in 'standby mode'.
