Hi. I plugged a 600w oven grill and a kettle which is 110w into a 1000w Ring power 1024 inverter 24v-240. And now it dont seem to work. The inverter is wired straight to the battery.


Does it work if you plug in just your smallest appliance 110W?. How about just your 600W appliance What size wire are you using to supply power to the inverter? The inverter will draw about 30 amps from the battery with your load. You need to use wires as large as a number 8 from the battery to the inverter. The length should be as short as possible but could be 20 ft away. My inverter is a 2000 Watt continous and I use welding cable size 0 at about 3ft max between the battery and the inverter.

My inverter keep blowing 40 amp fuses without load


Hi Trevor,
A 1000W can barely supply 5A at 220V, less than 10A at 110V. So if a 40A fuse blows, there is a serious problem and you should not attempt to use this unit after it has been checked by a qualified person. Please be careful!

Good luck!

My inverter keeps going to falt even though i only use it for a few seconds its only a few months old and has not been used mush its a 1000 2000 max


What are you trying to power with the inverter? Do you know how many watts your appliance need to run? Your 1000 watt inverter needs 83 amps from your battery to drive a 1000 Watt appliance. The minimum size wire you need to hook up the battery to the inverter is a size 6 as short as possible but no more than 25 ft.

Need to know what size fuse how many amps and volts for this device.


Rule of thumb for 12vdc to 120vac inverters is 1 amp of fuse for every 10 watts of power. So, this one would use a 7 amp fuse.

My name is Gena. The VEC024B that is being used by our field technicians are having problems with the fuse blowing in their work vans. Their vans are equipped with laptops.


Hi Gena, the inverter is a 400 watt unit. This is not a rating for a continuous load. You do not mention which fuse is blowing. This could be the fuse in the inverter or the cigarette lighter (power source) fuse. In either case, a fuse blowing could be a short circuit, something in the inverter shorted, or too much load. I am going to look at the too much load side of things. Not knowing how many laptops are being used, with the inverter if you have a 20 amp fuse in the cig lighter, this will allow you 20 amps X 12 volts = 240 watts. I would not run the inverter over 240 watts because of overheating issues. So, 240 watts will run 3 laptops. Just the laptops. Most laptops draw around 70 watts. check your power supplies on them to find their rating. If you exceed the 240 watts by combining the ratings, then you can expect trouble with your inverter. It will give 400 watts, but this is a temporary condition only. Another inverter will be needed or a larger one installed and it being connected directly to the battery (with a fuse of sufficient size installed). You could also (let us say there are 6 computers) charge and run 3, and the other 3 are running on their batteries. After an hour, switch so that the 3 running on batteries now are charging as well as running. The other 3 are now charging.
I hope this helps. If you have any other questions please provide additional information. Such as the size and location of the fuse blowing. The laptop power supply ratings.
thank you
