Need HSK024HD 800 watt Husky inverter cigarette adapter ONLY

I have a HSK024HD 800 watt Husky power inverter with a cigarette lighter adapter attached. I need to replace the cigarette lighter adapter (and wiring). The round clamp that attached to the ''RED PORT'' is no longer attached to the wire. I have tried welding it, but it just won't stay attached. Where can I purchase one?

SOURCE: humming noise in amp

You must break it down through a process of eliminating items. With the system running unplug the RCAs from the amp. Do you still hear the noise? Try turning the gain down on the amp a bit and increasing the subwoofer level on the head unit instead. Make sure you have a low pass crossover set (probably below 80Hz).
Does the noise change with engine RPM?
Try a different RCA cable. I find that most times noise filters will make the problem worse not better. If none of the above things work, check that the grounds within the car are good, battery to frame, to engine block and chassis. Sometimes a bad vehicle ground is the cause. If all else fails, hook it up to someone else's system and see how it works.

I want to know if my Duracell 130 Watt AC/DC Power Adapter can be used to plug in a coffee maker into my cigarette lighter? I also misplaced the User Manual to this product. Can it be replaced. I believe...


It's not a good idea to run anything that needs a lot of wattage through a power converter using a 12v cigarette lighter plug. Coffee makers work by using a resistant heater element and it might work, but you could damage the coffee maker or the adapter by doing so.

I bought a Nexxtech 175 watt inverter to power my laptop. It worked fine in my truck in the store parking lot but won't work in my tractor where I really need it. It works from the power point or the...


It could be any of a number of things, but the first 2 guesses I am going to make are:
1) The contacts in the cigarette lighter jack in the tractor are corroded; or
2) the wires that power the cigarette lighter jack in the tractor are too small of a gauge to provide enough current flow without a voltage drop. This one can be tested by popping the cigarette lighter jack out of the dashboard while still wired (carefully, you don't want to cause a short-circuit), and then plugging in the inverter and measuring the voltage with a multimeter going INTO the lighter jack. It should be at least 11.5, preferably 12, Volts. Test both before and after the inverter is plugged in. If the after reading drops too much, then you know you need a bigger gauge wire feeding the lighter jack.

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 have a 1250 watts inverter and i wanted to know if i can connect it to my 2003 ford explorer without connecting it straight to the battery


Let us look at the math. 1250 watts at 120 volts is w=va Watts equals volts times amps. Or in this case 1250 divided by 120 volts = 10.41 amps. But what is the 12 volt side capable of drawing. 1250 watts divided by 12 volts. 104.10 amps. This is more than what the average cigarette lighter or power port can provide. So, yes you need to connect directly to the battery, you can use a relay rated for 100 A in between the inverter and battery to control the power to the inverter. I would use a good #2 copper welding cable for the power leads. Now, if you are not planning on using the whole 1250 watts, then you can use a #4 welding cable (it is very flexible) for power leads.

I have a Veco24B 400 Watt DC to AC inverter and the fuse that is suppose to be located in the cigarette lighter adapter is missing and I would like to know the size of fuse that is required.


I would put a 20 amp fuse in. The wiring for the cigarette lighter is usually around 15 - 20 Amps. The wiring also is not rated for more than 20A. I hope this helps. JOe

I just bought a power inverter for use with my pc.


There are two possibilites: the first is the over 400W power draw, the other is how you have the inverter connected. Do you have the inverter connected directly to the battery terminals (the clips) not the outlet plug (cigaretter lighter)? This is needed for any load over 80W and under 400W. (the inverter can handle a load demand over the 400W limit but only for short periods (800W).)

What is the load that your PC pulls (Is it a laptop or a desktop)? The laptop in my home has either a 65W or a 90W load (depending on the battery and the AC adapter we are using). Desktops take much more power (usually).

I hope this helps.

Overloaded my inverter -now only works when hooked to car battery


It sounds like the fuse that protects you cigarette lighter is blown.

After you have replaced the fuse, check the voltage again. 0.015vdc would not have powered anything that in manufactured to operate on 12vdc.

When powering anything over about 250W, I would suggest connecting directly to the battery to avoid overloading the lighter circuit.

What about a small, light power inverter, that plugs into your cigarette lighter in your car, and has 100 Watts available?

Just want to know if there is a power adapter for this where I can get power from car cigarette lighter


There are adapters to a car lighter for all kinds of AC plugs but not usually very strong. Laser printers can take alot of power. How many WATTS does the powers cord say? Here is one that does a 160 continuous and 300 peak. Check the amps too before you buy, but there are a multitude of these they are called DC to AC converters.

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.
