Eliminator MotoMaster 3000 watt modified sine wave digital inverter not producing enough power
I bought a brand new inverter and battery charged it and I am confident I connected it correctly but when I plugged in a hair dryer in only cold air comes out and when I used an induction stove there is barely any heat produced. I am wondering what the issue is that I have enough power to start the appliances but I don't have the power to continue operating it?

well i guess it ok to use or connect energy station..but you need a higher battery to use.because we are talking fridge here..i think number of batteries you need for long life of the energy station..i suggest why trying solar energy to save much fuel..i hope it helps..
Most power inverters supply a modified sine wave output. This is different from the true sine wave you get at home. It's close enough for many applications, but not close enough for many transformers, which is what your laptop power supply is. So the problem is that your laptop's power supply does not work with a modified sine wave input. Some will, some won't. Very common problem.
I looked at the power requirements of this projector, 280W, but that assumes a nice sine wave. Your inverted is supposed to put out 400W, but it's a modified sine wave. Under ideal conditions (including a good battery) this might be just enough. Connecting directly to the battery will help a little, because of the limited ability to get current to and through the cigarette lighter. Using a 100 foot extension cord will diminish the voltage a bit (less so if it's a heavy gage wire). I would try connecting the inverter directly to the battery, run the engine and skip the extension cord. If that works, turn off the engine. If that works, try the extension cord. If it won't work with the engine running, connected directly and no cord - there are two possibilities: (1) the projector just won't run on a modified sine wave, (2) you need a bigger inverter.
regarding (1) I have seen lots of people having trouble with various devices. You might want to ask Epson support.
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.
Like most Cheap square wave inverters, the mosfets can not take the inrush current. Usually if the fault light comes on and there is NO voltage at the output, FIRST check the on board fuse, then check for any tell-tale burn spots, or areas where the components have heated up or burned.....if you get this far and all appears clear, then it is time to check the fets.
I would not reccomend any Motomaster Eliminator inverter other than the more costly sine wave unit....or stay with a 1kw unit and do not overload it. It\s best to run as much as you can at 12vdc or higher...like 24vds. AC is nothing but problems.
I would not do this, you really need a pure sine wave inverter to guarantee the safety of your CPAP machine. At the price they are selling this device it could not be pure sine wave. 150W pure sine wave would be $70-$100.
Look I been using solar and wind power for the last 20 years and never used public utilitiy, run your inverter to a braker box and connect your pump to it donot forgfet to ground the box and the inverter. that is all what you need...remmber modified sine wave may effect the life of the pump if it is cheep it may be ok or you need to get true Sine wave.
