IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS – This manual will show you how to use
your inverter safely and effectively. Please read, understand and follow these
instructions and precautions carefully, as this manual contains important safety
and operating instructions.
WARNING: The inverter’s output is 120V AC and can shock or electrocute, the
same as any ordinary household AC wall outlet.
WARNING: Pursuant to California Proposition 65, this product contains
chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or
other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.
•Do not cover or obstruct the inverter’s vents.
•Use the inverter in a well-ventilated area.
•This inverter is not intended for use by children.
•Do not expose the inverter to rain or snow.
•Use only accessories recommended or sold by the manufacturer.
•Do not operate the inverter with damaged or undersized wiring.
•Do not operate the inverter if it has received a sharp blow, been dropped or
otherwise damaged in any way; take it to a qualified service person.
•Do not disassemble the inverter; take it to a qualified service person when
service or repair is required. Incorrect reassembly may result in a risk of fire or
electric shock.
•Make sure the inverter is not close to any potential source of flammable
fumes, gases or clothing.
•Do not place the inverter in areas, such as battery compartments or engine
compartments, where fumes or gases may accumulate.
•Disconnect both AC and DC power from the inverter before attempting any
cleaning.
•DO NOT operate the inverter if you, the inverter, the device being operated
or any other surfaces that may come into contact with any power source are
wet. Water and many other liquids can conduct electricity, which may lead to
serious injury or death.
•Do not place the inverter in direct sunlight. The ideal air temperature for
operation is between 50° and 80°F.
•Only connect the power inverter to a 12 volt accessory outlet.
•Do not attempt to connect the inverter to any other power source, including an
AC power source.
•Do not modify the AC or USB receptacles in any way.
•Incorrect operation of your inverter may result in damage and personal injury.
•This device does not include an internal Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter
(GFCI). For GFCI protection, use a Coleman Cable 02822 GFCI outlet.

BEFORE USING YOUR INVERTER
Do not use the inverter with a product that draws a higher wattage than the
inverter can provide, as this may cause damage to the inverter and product.
When you turn on a device or a tool that runs on a motor, the device goes
through two stages:
1.Start Up – Requiring an initial surge of power (commonly known as the
“starting” or “peak” load).
2.Continuous Operation – Power consumption drops (commonly known as
the “continuous” load).
The wattage (WATTS) or amperes (AMPS) can normally be found stamped or
printed on most devices and equipment, or in the user’s manual. Otherwise,
contact the manufacturer to find out whether the device you want to use is
compatible with a modified sine wave.
To calculate the wattage: Wattage = AMPS x 120 (AC Voltage).
To calculate the starting load: Starting Load = 2 x wattage.
In general, the startup load of the device or power tool determines whether your
inverter has the capability to power it.
Always run a test to establish whether the inverter will operate a particular piece of
equipment or device. In the event of a power overload, the inverter is designed to
automatically shut down.
This safety feature prevents damaging the inverter while testing devices and
equipment within the wattage range of the inverter.

IMPORTANT: This inverter uses a modified sine waveform (diagram A) which is
not quite the same as power company electricity (diagram B). For the following
devices, we strongly recommend that you use caution and check the device’s
manual to make sure it is compatible with modified sine waveform.
1.Switch mode power supplies
2.Linear power supplies
3.Class 2 transformers
4.Line filter capacitors
5.Shaded pole motors
6.Fan motors
7.Microwave ovens
8.Fluorescent and high intensity lamps (with a ballast)
9.Battery chargers without transformers
Using the inverter with any of these devices may cause the device to run
warmer or overheat.

IMPORTANT: If you are using the power inverter to operate a battery
charger, monitor the temperature of the battery charger for about 10
minutes. If the battery charger becomes abnormally warm, disconnect it
from the inverter immediately.
NOTE: You may hear a “buzzing” sound being emitted from inexpensive
sound systems when operated with the inverter. This is due to ineffective filters
in the sound system’s power supply. Unfortunately, this problem can only be
resolved by purchasing a sound system with a higher quality power supply or
higher quality filter.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
CONNECTING THE INVERTER
IMPORTANT: Make sure you connect your inverter only to a 12V power supply
(ordinarily an automotive battery).
1. Remove the protective cover or cigarette lighter from the accessory outlet in the
vehicle passenger compartment.
2.Push the 12 volt power plug firmly into the outlet.
ATTENTION: Failure to make the correct connections will result in blown fuses
and permanent damage to the inverter.
3.The LED indicator lights should glow GREEN, verifying the inverter is
receiving power.
4.Make sure the device to be operated is turned OFF.
5.Plug the device into the inverter’s AC outlet or USB port.
6.Turn the device on.
7.To disconnect, reverse the above procedure.
NOTE: If more than one device is to be powered, start one device at a time, to
avoid a power surge and overloading the inverter. The surge load of each device
should not exceed the inverter’s Continuous Operation wattage rate.
POWER SOURCE
Your average automobile or marine battery at full charge will provide an ample
power supply to the inverter for approximately 2 hours when the engine is off.
The actual length of time the inverter will function depends on the age and
condition of the battery and the power demand being placed by the device
being operated with the inverter.
Before starting the engine after using the inverter with the engine off, turn OFF
the device plugged into the inverter and disconnect the inverter plug from the
12 volt accessory outlet. To maintain battery power, start the engine every 1 to
2 hours and let it run for approximately 10 minutes to recharge the battery.
Although it is not necessary to disconnect the inverter when turning over the
engine, it may briefly cease to operate as the battery voltage decreases. While
the inverter draws very low amperage when not in use, unplug it to avoid
battery drain.
HOW POWER INVERTERS WORK
There are two stages involved in transforming 12 volt DC (battery) power into
120 volt AC (household voltage):
STAGE 1: The power inverter uses a DC to DC transformer, to increase the
12 volt DC input voltage from the power source to 145 volt DC.
STAGE 2: The inverter then converts the 145 volt DC into 120 volt AC
(household voltage) using advanced MOSFET transistors in a full bridge
configuration. A “modified sine wave” waveform is generated by this conversion.
•7•
LED INDICATOR AND SHUTDOWN PROTECTION
The LED glows GREEN automatically when plugged into a 12 volt DC source,
but will not glow under the following conditions:
1.When the power input from the vehicle’s battery drops to approximately 10
volts, low battery shutdown occurs and the inverter shuts off.
Recharge or replace the battery.
2. When the power input from the vehicle’s battery exceeds 15 volts, high voltage
protection occurs. Reduce the voltage range to between 12 volts and 14 volts.
3.The case temperature becomes hot (exceeds 145°F).
Allow the inverter to cool. Do not block the cooling slots or air flow over
and through the inverter. Reduce the load on the inverter to the continuous
rated output.
RESET: To reset after shutdown occurs, remove the 12 volt plug from the
accessory outlet. Check the source of the problem and correct. Reinsert the
12 volt plug into the accessory outlet.
IF THE INVERTER’S FUSE BLOWS
Your power inverter is fitted with a fuse, which should not have to be replaced
under normal operating conditions. A blown fuse is usually caused by reverse
polarity or a short circuit within the device or equipment being operated.
If the fuse does blow:
1.Disconnect the device or equipment immediately.
2.Find the source of the problem and repair it.
3.Install a new 15 amp fuse. The fuse can be found on the end of the
accessory plug on the inverter.
4.Do not overtighten the fuse cap; finger-tight is sufficient.
IMPORTANT: Do not install a fuse higher than 15 amps, as this may damage
the inverter. Make sure to correct the cause of the blown fuse before using the
inverter again.
