Question about Black & Decker Husky 750w Power Inverter

1 Answer

I have had a Husky 1500 watt inverter for about 3 years. There is an 850cca Marine battery providing power to a freezer. Now the inverter acts as if the battery is dead after running about 15 minutes. I used to get about 9 hours. The battery has been replaced with the same results.

    It's kind of what I suspected as this happened to another Husky a few years ago. I replaced it then and the new one worked fine

What is most likely occurring is that the unit is overheating and then is being shut down by the protection circuitry, this is a common thing on a device such as this at the age it is. That also fits with the exact symptoms you describe.
The ONLY remedy is to get the unit serviced, however it may cost more to repair, than it is worth to replace? What you need to do is obtain a "Quote" first and go from there.
Contact a Black & Decker local or head office, and ask for a referral to a Husky, authorized service center, now when here FIRST ask for that "Quote" only, and once you have been appraised, make your mind up as to repair or replace?

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.

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.

Microwave wont run with a 1500 watt inverter why

Depending on the model of the microwave it could draw more wattage than what is put out by the inverter. Don't forget there is a inital spike when your unit first starts and that although an inverter might be listed at 1500 wat that is the maximum and will depend on how much power the inverter is getting in, so if the engine is not putting out enough power the inverter will not put out a full 1500.

Will a 750 inverter run a sump pump off of a deep cycle marine battery for a short period of time?

Looking at this, how many amps does the pump normally draw? Take this and multiply by 3 for start up current draw. Now, multiply that by 120 (volts) and this will give you the watts. Start up current is what will knock your inverter down. It won't kill the inverter but it will overload it on startup and turn off the unit. Since I do not know the size of your pump, this is my caution. You could always try it, the most that should happen is that the inverter will shut down.

Hi. I have a 5000 watt inverter in my truck. The alternator in the truck is a 150? amp alternator. I also have 3 deep cycle batteries (about 150 ah each) to run the inverter. Is this overkill for my...

A 5000 wat inverter is very large. Your alternator could not supply it alone without the batteries. The moderate to low usage is the key. Calculate the wattage of the load you want to connect. Depending on what else you're doing with the truck, lights, heater, air condition etc, you could probably draw somewhere between 1,0000-1500 watts on that alternator. Rember even if your alternator is rated for 150amps (large alt) it is not a 100% duty cycle. Alternators are usually around 50% duty cycle, so figure about 75amps continuous, or around 900 watts. That's considerably less than your 5,000 watt inverter. Buy a generator.

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.

Is this inverter powerful enough?

You are right. This is not enough to operate this freezer. You are going to need a bigger invertor it get it to work properly 900 or 1000 watt should be efficient even though it is not the best way to run the unit. If the unit has a problem you would be replacing the inverter all the time. Just FYI

Tech Question

Automotive batteries are usually adequate for small inverters, (< 500 Watts). When used in a car, we suggest you run the vehicle of your engine occasionally while operating your inverter. If you use the inverter while the engine is off, you should start the engine regularly and let it run to charge the battery. Deep Cycle (marine) batteries are best for larger inverters as they are designed for several hundred charge/discharge cycles. (Automotive batteries wear out much more quickly after heavy discharge).
