Because inverters operate from a DC (Direct Current) power source, usually a battery bank (one or more batteries), the battery source will have to be recharged at some point. (Remember that a battery discharged more than 50% is probably close to being dead.) Most cars and trucks recharge their batteries from an onboard alternator. Depending on the inverter load and runtime required, most power use applications will be covered by the charged battery, augmented by the operating alternator supplying a continuous charge to the battery. If the load is large (air conditioner, large draw power tools, large microwave, food freezer, ice cream machine, etc.), the user should verify that the installed vehicle alternator is of large enough capacity to operate the vehicle's power requirement as well as to fulfill the capacity of the inverter load. If it’s not, a motor throttle installation may be required to carry a small load, a larger alternator may be required, or a larger alternator, battery isolator and additional onboard battery bank may be required in order to meet the power requirement of the large load. Remember: it takes 12 DC Amps (at 12 VDC) to run 1 AC Amp (at 120 VAC single-phase) of power because there are voltage and efficiency factors to take into consideration.

How much power does a 150w inverter unit actualy use its self whilst working ?
Most will be about 10% in this size.
And then there is stand-by power usage.

Can't find the transfer switch, and could it go bad. Shore power and generator power works to the main panel box, but won't charge coach batteries


although it is possible to do separately most times the transfer switch is internal to the inverter , and the fact you mention that inverter is not charging batteries tells me your fault lay in the inverter all or part of it is not working , look at it carefully these have sometimes two reset breakers on there cases

Batteries go dead when you drive with the inverter on?


It appears that you are drawing more power when driving and using the inverter than the charging system can supply.

Can this model be used on the grid? If not, is there a sunforce inverter that can be used on the grid?


If you meant for the mains supply then it must be connected in series to the load so that in absence of power the invertor takes over and when there is power the supply takes over as it charges the battery.
So have this wiring done with the connection routed from the fuse box or main board.

I'm dumb. Can I hook an inverater to my generator and produce more enegry than my generator produces???


Please understand that the generator produces power from fuel with an engine wheras the invertor is one which genrerates power from a stored battery using the principle of frequency switching a DC source to induct and produce AC.
Now you can have an uninterupted power supply setting with the invertor backed up by the generator so that when the battery voltage goes down you can start and charge the invertor and also supply the extra energy .
the ratings of both must also be considered.

Can I back feed through my inverter from a generator to charge my batteries?


What does it invert?Higher voltage to lower or what?Either way,with 1200 watts being inverted,it is not a good idea to charge a battery with that kind of power.Batteries need to be charged low and slow.We are talking milliamps for hours.Fast charging a battery results in a very good chance of explosion,which is never good.Acid from the battery will go everywhere.

Charging laptop in car


Most inverters create a modified sine wave output, which is similar to, but not the same as the AC you get out of the wall. The power supply for many laptops (and most transformers in general) will not run with a modified sine wave input. There are devices available that skip the inverter and the power supply. They go directly from 12VDC to what your laptop needs.

Wont charge


Inverters convert dc voltage to AC voltage - they don't charge.
If you have a remote/emergency power supply, it has a separate battery charger circuit - apart from the inverter... and it probably has an internal cartrige fuse. If blown, replace and retry.

Why does the power inverter keep beeping when i plug up my laptop


If your not getting enough voltage to the inverter it will beep to let you know you don't have enough power. Most common cause is a lose connection thru your cigarette lighter. Also if you turn your key off it might be shutting down power to your plug.
Make sure you have a good connection with your battery or plug adapter. You also need a good battery so you don't go into a low voltage condition which will make your inverter beep.
