The IP300 portable inverter from Projecta is the ideal size for running smaller 240V appliances from a 12V battery. It produces pure sine wave power suitable for all types of electronic appliances, and due to it's compact size is also suited for permanent installation in vehicles where space is limited.
We consider this inverter a budget choice for a small 12V inverter. It is considerably cheaper than the Latronics LS512, and still has enough power for battery chargers and small appliances.
When considering what size of appliances this inverter can power, please bear in mind that purely resistive loads are very rare these days (eg the light bulb with fillament wire). Most appliances are either capacitive or inductive. That means that you can't use an appliance that has "300W" on the name plate with this inverter. Inductive loads/appliances can draw up to 10 times their rated power when starting - so you need to use an inverter with a "peak power" capacity of at least the starting power of your appliance. This includes fridges, power tools, battery chargers, air conditioners, pumps, fluro lights etc. Capacitive loads such as old style TV's require large surge currents to charge their capacitors. Resetting the inverter several times may allow this type of appliance to work. For more information, please download the manual which has more detailed information.
