Does the yamaha EF1000is inverter generator 1kva


it seems to be the standard that the rating or model ??1000 or ??1500 or ??2500 or ??5000 or??5500 or ??6500 is the kv rating of the gen-set regardless of straight or inverter
so if yours is EF1000 it will be 1000 watts or 1 kv
remember that most electric drills are 1000 watt units so a unit this small is mostly good for lights, charging batteries, small compressors for tyres

Hi as I'm a girl and know very little information about inverters,I would like to power my freezer and microwave,so could someone please help me and tell me which one would work for me.thanks Sarah


find the watts on each appliance. Usually on the back of then. Add all the watts together then buy a inverter that can put out more than what you need. Say all the watts come up to 2,000watts you will need an inverter that's 2,500watts minimum so you don't burn up the inverter.

I buy a new power inverter ERP 2300 12v/220Volts


What does the inverter over 600 Watt.
By what type of battery is the inverter supplied? How many Ah? What is its state?

In order to achieve 1000 Watt for 1 hour you need a fully charged 12 V / 100 Ah lead-acid battery.
If your battery is less then 100 Ah and is not very well charged or old (bad) you may not have over 600 W, but not bacause of the inverter, but the battery.

If your inverter stops due to low input voltage (you can see it in the digital display during operation).

If you want to check the real output power of the inverter you should connect it to a big (more than 200 Ah) well charged battery.

I need to install a power converter in my truck.Can any one help me with the basics? Please get back to me. Keith


What is it exactly that you want to accomplish? It looks like this unit is powered by the electrical system of your truck, but if it indeed can provide 2500 Watts of output power, its input demand from your truck electrical system will be in excess of 200 Amps!!! You'll need some pretty hefty wiring to support that type of demand, and I doubt if your alternator can put out that amount of current.
Are you sure you want/need to do this - and run it off your truck electrical system?

Power drop


Hey, Question: Is the 2400 watt the peak rating or the continuous rating of the unit, and what is your power source for the inverter. If 2400 is the peak, the 1200 is probably the continuous. Your 75 watt fridge will draw probably 150-170 watts to start up, which will load the inverter to draw 15-17 amps of load on your 12 volt power source. If the battery supply is weak, the current draw at startup will cause the voltage to drop and set off the alarm. Getting the start up out of order may work for a while, but will eventually blow the internal fuses on the inverter, or possibly blow out the capacitors. Check the condition of the battery supply, and make sure the bar fridge is in good working order to resolve this problem.

I just bought a RoadPro 2500 and i want to buy like a dorm fridge how many watts or volts size would work??


If you are referring to the RoadPro RPPI-250
  • 2000 Watts Continuous Power
  • 2500 Watts Power Output @ 10 Minutes
  • 5000 Watts Peak Power Output.
  • A small fridge will use about 500 -700 watts, with startup wattage at around 2000watts.
  • So, a dorm fridge will work fine.
  • the RoadPro converts DC to AC voltage, so a regular 120 volt dorm fridge will work.

    Burnt out


    internal failure possibly on power side, lower than 300A fault current so unit could not trip i/p protection and as fault was post ac section, continued to burn internally.
    it just broke
    no breakers tripped out so it kept drawing current until the fault burnt away.


    maybe this is what happened, need to know a lot more info to change hypothisis
