Can I hook a power inverter to a separate battery than my vehicle and use an outler from the inverter to hook a battery charger up and keep the battery powering the inverter charged?


Sounds good in theory doesn't it, but Mr Newton and his theories tell you why that won't work. You can't make power, by using that power to make more. Energy always diminishes, so it may work for a very short time. If you use an external power source to charge your inverter battery, it will certainly charge the other battery but not in an everlasting circle. Eventually, you will have two flat batteries..

How do i connect 4 batteries in series


Here is the way to hook them up in series, or in parallel.
There are 3 batteries in top (series) pic, but a 4th would be added in same wiring manner. Disregard the letters "ve" in diagrams, but the +/- polarity is vitally important in hookup.
.
Note that four 12v batteries hooked up in series will be 48 volts at the end terminals. (If all four are hooked up in "parallel" then the total would still be 12 volts).

If you want to supply a 12v inverter, you need to hook 12v batteries in PARALLEL.

My cobra 1500 watt inverted doesn't come on wen I


You may not have adequate input voltage. And unless you are hooking up to a forklift battery, the battery will not have adequate current delivery capability for any more than a few seconds at full power of the inverter.

1200 Watts is 100 Amps. 1500 Watts is in the neighborhood of 130 Amps.

IT KEEPS BLOWING CAR FUSES


Power inverters can do this if they are internally shorted or they are being over loaded. If you are just using it to charge a phone or a computer it should not be over loaded. Now if you are charging a computer and running a small cooler at the same time, that may be real close to max which may blow a fuse. Have you tried hooking it straight to the battery to see if it will run what ever you are running. It has it's own fuse so if it has an internal short it will blow that fuse. It if works hooked to the battery and is just blowing the cig lighter or acc. fuse it can be a weak socket. If the socket is hot it may have a loose wire on the back side causing low voltage which can blow a fuse. So hook it to the battery direct, if it works ok there, reconnect it to your acc port and if it is getting hot it may be the weak socket. If it will not run hooked to the battery, it has an internal short and it would be better to buy new than try and fix. Sorry.

Hi; I have a 1750w eliminator but no fitting instuctions. is it just a case of fitting it straight to the battery . is it as simple as that ? what if the truck has 4 batteries how do i know which to...


Sounds like your a truck driver. Anyways you would hook up the ground to the negative and the hot to the positive side. The 4 batteries are in a series so just pick a negative and positive. I hope this has helped, please give a rating on the answer. Good Luck and have a great weekend.

Power hook up


This type of inverter has large alligator clips on it because the amperage that comes through a cigarette lighter is insufficient and can result in blown fuses and overheating of the socket. Hook this one up directly to the battery without splicing a longer wire to it.

I have no instalation instructions for my 2500 rppipower inverter


You should use 2 red and 2 black cables, Install the inverter as close to the batteries as possible and use minimum #4ga cables #2 are better. Keep the cables as short as possible. You will need also connectors, like the ones on the truck's battery cables, attach these to both ends of each cable and crimp VERY well, connect all 4 cables to the inverter first, then the red cables at the positive battery terminals (if 4 batteries use one on each end) then the black cables to the negative posts the same way.
