Power converts DC battery power from your vehicle into standard 120
volt AC power, allowing you to power most notebook computers, cell
phone chargers, camcorders, and other electronic products drawing AC
power. Your personal devices may exceed the inverters wattage limit.
Refer to your device's user guide for actual wattage requirements.
