General Features

Type of Inverter
This is the way in which the power inverter will convert the power.

AC to DC: Converts common household AC power to DC Power.

DC to AC: Converts DC power to the common household AC power. Often times these converters can be plugged into the vehicles cigarette lighter.

AC to DC
Maximum Power Output
This is the maximum amount of power that the unit will produce at a given time. Usually this is not the amount of power that is continuously being produced.
2000 watts
Continuous Power Output
This is the average amount of power that the unit will produce. If you have specific needs, it is more effective to consider the RMS power output rather than the max power output. Continuous power output is also referred to as a RMS power rating.
1000 watts
Number of Power Outlets
This is the total number of outlets that the power inverter, power strip, or other power device has.
USB Port
This means that the item has a USB port. The port can be used to provide the unit with updates or to transfer data on to it.
Fan Cooled
A great feature to have if a power inverter generates a large amount of heat. Cooling fans can help regulate the temperature to prevent the inverter from overheating (burning).
Low Battery Shutdown
When the voltage in the vehicle drops below a certain point, the inverter will automatically shut itself off so prevent the vehicle battery from dying.
Rack Mountable
Some units can be mounted to a rack for organization and convenience.
Battery Cables Included
Battery cables included means that the unit comes with battery cables and clips to connect the unit to the vehicle's battery.
