Power Inverter, DC to AC
AH640R Users Guide
CAUTION: Be certain that product hookup/usage does not interfere with driving in any
way. Some states prohibit the use of A/V equipment while driving.
This RCA brand Power Inverter lets you operate AC-powered electronic devices
rated up to 400 Watts of continuous power*, such as TVs, VCRs, Video Games,
Camcorders, and Notebook Computers from the 12-volt DC power supplied by
your car, boat, or RV. This RCA-brand Power Inverter provides two AC outlets
wherever you need one by converting the 12-volt DC (direct current) supplied in
your vehicle to 110-volts AC (alternating current) found in standard household
AC outlets. The AH640R also provides a USB outlet, allowing it to serve as a USB
power adapter as well.
The USB power port provides up to 1000mA at 5V DC current.
IMPORTANT: Check that the inverter power is large enough to cover the required
wattage of your electronic device you want to connect.
Safety Features
• Low voltage alarm – alarm sounds if input voltage drops below 11.0 volts
• Low voltage shutdown – unit automatically shuts down if input voltage
drops below 11.0 volts to prevent unexpected dead car batteries
• Automatic short-circuit detection and shutdown
• Automatic overload detection and shutdown
• Thermal protection sensor—shuts the unit down if it becomes too hot
• Green power-on LED
Connecting the Inverter:
IMPORTANT NOTE: Most vehicles come equipped with a 15-amp or 20-amp fuse to
the cigarette lighter. To determine the wattage capacity of your cigarette lighter outlet,
multiply the amperage rating for your fuse by 12 (volts x amps = watts). For example: 12
volts x 20 amp fuse =240 watts. Connecting equipment with a combined wattage rating
that exceeds the capacity of your cigarette lighter outlet may cause your vehicle's
cigarette lighter fuse to blow. Use the supplied direct battery connection adapter in
these cases.
For your safety and continued fi re protection, never replace a fuse with one of a higher
amperage rating than the original fuse.
A. Connecting equipment that is within the capacity of your cigarette lighter
outlet:
1. Connect the cable with the cigarette plug on one end by matching the red
and black wires to the red and black terminals*
2. Plug the cigarette lighter plug into the cigarette lighter outlet in your
vehicle.
3. Turn the on/off switch on the Power Inverter to the "on" position.
4. Plug the device you wish to use into the AC outlet on the Power Inverter.
5. Turn the power switch of the device on.
6. Use the device as you normally would.
B. Connecting equipment that exceeds the capacity of your cigarette lighter
outlet.
1. Connect the cable with the two battery clips on one end by matching the
red and black wires to the red and black terminals.*
2. Be sure the on/off switch on the Power Inverter is in the "off" position,
then connect the black alligator clip to the negative (-) terminal on your
vehicle's battery.
3. Connect the red alligator clip to your battery's positive (+) terminal.
4. Follow steps 3-6 above.
*Incorrectly attaching the cables may damage the unit. Such damage is not
covered by the warranty.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING THE USB POWER PORT
After connecting the inverter with either the cigarette lighter plug or battery
clips, insert an appropriate USB charging cable (not included) for the device
you are trying to power into the USB power port on the front of the inverter,
the USB power port will provide 5 volts DC at a maximum of 1000 mA of
current, you may use the USB power port and the 120 VAC output from the
inverter at the same time.
NOTES:
Depending on your vehicle, you may need to turn your ignition switch to the
"on" position to provide power to the cigarette lighter outlet.
ALWAYS turn the power of a connected device off BEFORE starting your
vehicle.
Never use a surge protector or power strip with the Power Inverter.
If an extension cord is required, use only an extension cord that is rated for
the wattage of the connected device.
There is a fuse in the cigarette lighter plug to prevent excess power draw,
through the cigarette lighter outlet. If this fuse blows, unscrew the tip and
replace it with a standard automotive (glass) fuse of equivalent ampherage.
Never replace the fuse with a fuse of a different rating. Using non-equivalent
fuses may result in damage to your equipment or the Power inverter and will
void your warranty.
It is common for the Power Inverter's casing and cigarette lighter plug to
become hot while in use. Always place the Power Inverter in a well-ventilated
area where air can fl ow freely to disperse the heat. Use caution when
handling the Power Inverter after being used. lf the Power Inverter becomes
too hot, it will shut down. Allow the Power Inverter to cool adequately before
reconnecting.
Disconnect the Power Inverter from its power source when not in use.
Some electronic devices, such as TVs, require high Starting currents. If the
device doesn't immediately start, press the power switch of the device on and
off 5 times until the device comes on, then release the switch. lf the device
does not come on after 5 times, it cannot be used with this Power Inverter.
Be sure the combined power consumption (measured in watts) of all devices
connected to the Power Inverter does not exceed the rated continuous
power output of the Power Inverter.
The red LED will light under the following conditions
• Low voltage
• Excessively high voltage
• Overheating
• Overloading beyond capability of the inverter
This Power Inverter is designed for use with a 12-volt DC negative ground
system. Never use this product with a 6- volt or 24-volt DC system or a
positive ground system.
Improper use of this Power Inverter can cause property damage, personal
injury, and/or loss of life. Do not use this Power Inverter in a location that is
near fl ammable materials or where fl ammable fumes may accumulate.
WARNING: DO NOT USE FOR MEDICAL OR OTHER LIFE SUPPORT EQUIPMENT OR
OTHER HIGH RISK ACTIVITIES.
* Performance issues may arise if your device requires more than 400W of
continuous power.
