Whistler power inverters are the perfect solution for those that take road trips or spend a lot of time in the car. By providing a AC outlet in the vehicle, the passengers are able to plug in their electronics just like they would at their home. Each inverter is designed and made with specific circuit protection to ensure that you are giving your electronic devices safe and reliable power. Make the most out of your next road trip with a Whistler power inverter!

Overload Protection
When the inverter receives a load above it's rating, it will automatically shut down.

Smart Surge Control
When the draw on the inverter is above the continuous rated power, the inverter will attempt to power the device for up to 10 seconds before shutting off.

Voltage Protection
Whenever the input is greater than 15V DC or less than 10V DC, the inverter will automatically and safely shut down.

Short Circuit Protection
When a short circuit is detected, the inverter automatically shuts off until the short circuit is removed.

Thermal Cutoff
The inverter will automatically shut down if the internal temperature exceeds safe design parameters

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.

DC to AC
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.
2400 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.
1200 watts
Sine Wave
A true sine wave inverter will convert the power produced by your vehicle in a true sine wave. This allows for a cleaner power output with less distortion and will allow larger items like appliances to run cooler and quieter. A modified since wave inverter will not convert the power from your car and are typically only suited for smaller items such as fans or lights. If you're planning on hooking up items such as laptops/computers, game consoles or appliances, you want to use a true sine wave inverter.
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.
