Product Code: BX-AM155

This power inverter can convert DC power from a car cigarette lighter socket or a 12V battery ( voltage range can be 10V ~ 17V) into 110V 60Hz AC power. It has a max output of 155W. Its input side is a car cigarette light plug, which can directly plug to a car cigarette lighter socket. Its output side is a universal 3-hole AC socket which accepts both 2-pin and 3-pin AC plugs.

With this DC to AC power inverter, you can power your electronic devices with their original power adapters from a car cigarette lighter socket or a 12V battery.

You can use this inverter together with your device's original AC power adapter to power your device from a 12V car cigarette lighter socket, or charge a battery with its original AC charger from a 12V car cigarette lighter socket.
This inverter is small (4" x 2.6" x 1.5" ) and ight weight (0.3kg or 0.5 lb.) It is very easy to carry.

Important Note: This power inverter does not generate any power. All its power output is from the battery it's connected to. The power inverter only changes the power format, and its efficiency rate is about 90%. This power inverter rated output is 155W. However, the actual power output from the inverter is also limited by the battery output. To get 155W power from this inverter, the connected battery output need to be around 175 ~ 190W. Most car cigarette lighters may only supply maximum 120W power.

Devices That Will Typically Work Fine with a Modified Sine Wave Inverter:

This power inverter outputs modified wave power like this:

Most electronics work just fine with a modified sine wave. If the device that you want to power uses a power adapter that changes AC into DC, such as a laptop computer, itís extremely unlikely that youíll have any issues. However, anything that uses an AC motor isnít going to work to full capacity on a modified sine wave. Appliances like refrigerators, microwaves, and compressors that use AC motors wonít run as efficiently on a modified sine wave as they would on a pure sine wave (or your line power at home). In some cases, that may lead to a buildup of excess waste heat that could damage the equipment. Youíre can use these devices with a modified sine wave inverter, but you do so at your own risk.

The other concern about modified sine wave inverters is use with delicate medical equipment. For instance, if you use a CPAP to help correct apneas when youíre asleep, youíre going to be better off with a pure sine wave inverter. Some CPAP manufacturers warn that you can damage your machine with a modified sine wave inverter, and others specify that the CPAP will work but the humidifier unit could be damaged. In these cases, youíre better off using pure sine wave power or looking for a unit that can be powered by DC without a need for an inverter at all.
