Resistive loads are the easiest for the inverter to run; however, it will not run larger resistive loads (such as
electric stoves and heaters), which require far more wattage than the inverter can deliver. Inductive loads (such
as TVs and stereos) require more current to operate than do resistive loads of the same wattage rating.
For safety reasons, the unit will simply shut down if it is overloaded. To restart the unit, simply unplug all
devices plugged into the unit; disconnect the unit from any 12 volt DC power source; then reconnect the unit
BEFORE plugging the appliance back in.
Operation of the 115 Volt AC Outlet
1. Connect the inverter to a functioning 12 volt DC power source as described in this Instruction Manual. If
using the 12 Volt 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 ventilation of the inverter.
2. Press the Power Pushbutton to turn the unit ON.
3. The green Power LED Indicator will light, indicating a proper connection. If the either the yellow Input Fault
LED Indicator or red Output Fault LED Indicator lights, indicating a fault condition exists, refer to the
"Troubleshooting" section of this Instruction Manual.
4. If the Inverter does not work, make sure the ignition/accessory switch is actually powering the accessory
outlet. Some vehicles require the ignition switch to be turned on.
5. Plug the (110/120 volt AC) appliance into the Inverter's three-prong AC outlet and operate normally.
Note: The Inverter will not operate appliances and equipment that generate heat, such as hair dryers,
electric blankets, microwave ovens and toasters.
Remember to disconnect the inverter from any power source when not in use.
Operation of the USB Charging Port
1. Connect the inverter to a functioning 12 volt DC power source as described in this Instruction Manual. If
using the 12 Volt 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 ventilation of the inverter.
2. Press the Power Pushbutton to turn the unit ON.
3. The green Power LED Indicator will light, indicating a proper connection. If the either the yellow Input Fault
LED Indicator or red Output Fault LED Indicator lights, indicating a fault condition exists, refer to the
"Troubleshooting" section of this Instruction Manual.
4. If the inverter does not work, make sure the ignition/accessory switch is actually powering the accessory
outlet. Some vehicles require the ignition switch to be turned on.
5. 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 5 volts/300mA DC
power to an external USB-powered device.
Remember to disconnect the inverter from any power source when not in use.
Operation of the 12 Volt DC Outlet
1. Connect the inverter to a functioning 12 volt DC power source as described in this Instruction Manual. If
using the 12 Volt DC Vehicle Accessory Adapter, rotate the vehicle accessory plug slightly to make sure there
is good contact.
2. Press the Power Pushbutton to turn the unit ON.
3 The green Power LED Indicator will light, indicating a proper connection. If the either the yellow Input Fault
LED Indicator or red Output Fault LED Indicator lights, indicating a fault condition exists, refer to the
"Troubleshooting" section of this Instruction Manual.
4 If the inverter does not work, make sure the ignition/accessory switch is actually powering the accessory
outlet. Some vehicles require the ignition switch to be turned on.
5. Plug the 12 volt DC-powered device into the inverter's 12 Volt DC Power Port and operate normally.
Note: Do not attempt to use this unit to power appliances that draw more than 8 amps.
Remember to disconnect the inverter from any power source when not in use.

Protective Features

The inverter monitors the following conditions:
Low Battery Voltage — This condition is not harmful to the inverter, but could damage the power source, so the
inverter will automatically shut down when input voltage drops below 10.5 ± 0.3 volts DC.
Input Voltage Too High — The inverter will automatically shut down when DC input voltage exceeds 15.5 ± 0.5
volts, as this can harm the unit.
Thermal Shutdown Protection — The inverter will automatically shut down when the unit becomes overheated.
Overload/Short Circuit Protection — The inverter will automatically shut down when a short circuit occurs.
