5. OPERATING THE INVERTER
Operation of the USB Charging Port
1. Connect the inverter to a functioning 12V DC power source as described in
this instruction manual. If using the 12V DC vehicle accessory adapter,
rotate the vehicle accessory plug slightly to make sure there is good
contact. Make sure there is adequate space for proper inverter ventilation.
• Plug the USB-powered device into the inverter's USB charging port and
operate normally.
NOTE: This unit’s USB charging port does not support data
communication. It only provides 5V / 2.1A DC power to an external
USB-powered device. Remember to disconnect the inverter from any
power source when not in use.
NOTE: Not all mobile phones are provided with a charging cable; they are
normally data cables which are not supported by this device. Please check
with your mobile phone manufacturer for the correct charging cable.
Using the DC Cable
Due to the limitations of 12V outlets in vehicles or boats, the Power Inverter
should only be used to supply AC power to devices that require 130W
(approximately 1.0A) or less.
CAUTION:
The Power Inverter must only be connected to a battery that has a nominal
output of 12V. It will not operate if connected to a 6V battery and may be
damaged if connected to a battery with 16V or more.
Choosing a Location
For best performance, place the inverter on a flat surface in a location that is:
DRY
Do not expose the inverter to water, rain, snow or spray.
COOL
Operate the inverter in ambient temperature between
32°F and 104°F (0°C and 40°C). Keep it away from
heating vents and direct sunlight.
WELL‐VENTILATED For proper cooling, allow at least 2” (5 cm) of clearance
around the inverter.
CLEAN / FREE OF
DUST AND DIRT
Choose a location that is free of any debris that could get
into the inverter.
SAFE
Do not install the inverter in a compartment with batteries
or flammable liquids, such as gasoline, or explosive
vapours.
Connecting for Load Under 100W
1. Plug the DC cable with lighter plug into the Power Inverter’s DC cable port.
See Figure 1.
2. Insert the lighter plug into the vehicle’s 12V outlet.
3. Plug the device that you wish to operate into the Power Inverter.
Figure 1

Inverter to DC
plug with lighter
plug.
CAUTION:
REVERSE POLARITY DAMAGE
When plugging in the DC cable, ensure that the plug aligns with the DC cable
port. Failure to do so will result in reverse polarity and a blown fuse.
Inverter Operation
Plug the device(s) that you wish to operate into the AC outlet, and switch the
device(s) on (if necessary).
Operating Guidelines
• As the battery is used, its voltage will begin to fall. When the Power Inverter
determines that the voltage at its DC input has dropped to 10‐11V, the
inverter will automatically shut down and the light will glow red, indicating a
fault. This prevents the battery from being damaged. If this occurs, turn off
any devices that are being powered by the Power Inverter.
IMPORTANT: Vehicle batteries are designed to provide brief periods of
very high current needed for engine starting. They are not designed to
handle constant deep discharge. Operating the Power Inverter from a
vehicle battery regularly, until low‐voltage shutdown occurs, will shorten the
life of the battery.
• If an AC device that is rated higher than 130W is plugged into the Power
Inverter, the inverter will shut down, and the red fault light will come on.
• If the power Inverter exceeds a safe operating temperature due to
insufficient ventilation or a high‐temperature environment, it will
automatically shut down, and the red fault light will come on.
• If a defective battery charging system causes the battery voltage to rise to
dangerously high levels, the power Inverter will automatically shut down,
and the red fault light will come on.
CAUTION:
Although the Power Inverter provides protection against over‐voltage, it may
still be damaged if the input voltage exceeds 16V. In the event of an overload,
low battery voltage, or overheating, the Power Inverter will automatically shut
down.
Interference with Electronic Equipment
PROBLEM: Measured inverter output is too low.
Most AC devices operate with the Power Inverter just as they would with
household AC power. Two possible exceptions are described below.
Battery voltage is too low.
Buzzing Sound in Audio Systems and Radios
Some inexpensive stereo systems and AM‐FM radios have inadequate internal
power supply filtering, and may buzz slightly when powered by the Power
Inverter. Generally, the only solution is to use an audio device that has a higher
quality filter.
Connected AC devices are rated
at more than the inverter’s continuous
power rating; an overload shutdown
has occurred.
Television Interference
The Power Inverter is shielded in order to minimize its interference with
television signals. However, in the case of weak TV signals, interference may
be visible in the form of lines scrolling across the screen. The following actions
should minimize or eliminate the problem:
• Increase the distance between the Power Inverter and the TV, antenna and
cables.
• Adjust the orientation of the Power Inverter and the television, antenna and
cables.
• Maximize the TV signal strength by using a better antenna, using shielded
antenna cable whenever possible.
Use a device that has a power rating
that is less than the inverter’s
continuous power rating.
The AC device's starting power ratings The AC device's starting power
is higher than inverter's surge power ratings must be lower than inverter's
ratings; an overload shutdown occurs surge power ratings.
because of higher starting surge power.
The battery is discharged.
Recharge the battery.
The inverter has overheated due to
poor ventilation, and has shut down.
Unplug the inverter from the DC
socket, and allow it to cool
for 15 minutes. Remove any objects
that may be covering the inverter.
Move the inverter to a cooler place.
Reduce the load if continuous
operation is required. Restart.
The Power Inverter has a replaceable 15A slow blow fuse. Remove the blown
fuse from lighter plug and replace it with a new 15A slow blow fuse.

Although the Inverter can supply momentary surge power up to 260W, some
appliances may exceed the capabilities of the Inverter and trigger the safety
overload shutdown circuit. This shutdown is intermittent. It will automatically
restart, then shutdown like a flashlight. We recommend you to check the
output of your appliance.
Remove the faulty fuse.
fuse
CAUTION:
The ideal conditions to operate the unit is when the ambient temperature is
around 77°F (25°C), this will help to prevent an overheat shutdown caused by
high temperatures.
Operating time will vary depending on the charge level and capacity of the
battery and the power level that is being drawn by the particular AC load. An
operating time of 4 to 5 hours or more can be expected with a typical vehicle
battery and a 130W load. When using a vehicle’s battery as a power source, it
is strongly recommended that the vehicle be started every hour to two in order
to recharge the battery before its capacity drops too low. The Power Inverter
can operate while the engine is running, but the normal voltage drop that
occurs when the engine is started may trigger the inverter’s low voltage
shutdown feature.
PROBLEM: The AC device will not operate and the red fault light is on.
Replacing the Fuse
