Power Inverters

What are Power Inverters?
A Power Inverter is an electronic device that changes the Direct Current (DC) from a battery or Solar Panel, to Alternating Current (AC) i.e. the electric power that household appliances use. The Power Inverter does not produce any power; the power is provided by the DC source. Power Inverters come in a variety of power sizes and types and can operate a range of electrical devices such as: TVs, Radios, Laptops, Ipads, Computers, Fridges, Blenders, Heaters, Lights, Fans and Coffee machines.
Types of Power Inverters
Most Power Inverters produce either Modified square (Modified Sine) waves, or Pure Sine (or True Sine) waves. Modified Sine Wave Inverters don't provide the smooth peaks and valleys that AC power from a home's electrical outlet does, but it can deliver power that is consistent and efficient enough to run most devices. This type of Inverter is cheaper than Pure Sine Wave Inverters. Pure Sine Wave Inverters are the most expensive, but they also deliver the smoothest and most even wave output. Any electrical device will run on a Pure Sine Wave, and some sensitive equipment, like LED Televisions, Laptops, Ipads, Fridges require this type of inverter to operate correctly. Radios, for example, work better with Pure Sine Wave Inverters because the Modified Square Wave Inverter's less-smooth waves disrupt the radio's reception, causing static and other noise.
