5. Connect a length of wire between the inverter's negative (–) terminal and the DC power source negative (–)
terminal.
6. Connect a short length of wire to the other terminal of the fuse holder or circuit breaker. Mark it "POSITIVE"
or "+".
7. Connect the free end of the fuse or breaker wire to the positive (+) terminal of the DC power source (battery).
8. Insert a fuse appropriate to the inverter in the fuse holder.
9. Test the inverter by turning it on and plugging in a 100 watt lamp or equipment.
10. If the inverter is not properly operating, then refer to the Troubleshooting section of this manual.
CAUTIONS
• Loose connectors may cause overheated wires and melted insulation.
• Check to make sure you have not reversed the polarity. Damage due to reversed polarity is not covered by our
warranty.

Connection To Load

The Power Inverter is equipped with outlets. Plug the cord from the equipment you wish to operate into the AC
receptacle(s). Make sure the combined load requirement of your equipment does not exceed maximum
continuous power.
The Power Inverter is engineered to be connected directly to standard electrical and electronic equipment in the
manner described above. Do not connect the Power Inverter to household or RV AC distribution wiring. Do not
connect the Power Inverter to any AC load circuit in which the neutral conductor is connected to ground (earth)
or to the negative of the DC (battery) source.
WARNING: Do not connect to AC distribution wiring!

Rated Versus Actual Current Draw of Equipment

Most electrical tools, appliances, electronic devices and audio/visual equipment have labels that indicate the
power consumption in amps or watts. Be sure that the power consumption of the item to be operated is below
750 watts. If the power consumption is rated in amps AC, simply multiply by the AC volts to determine the
wattage.
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; switch the unit OFF then ON, BEFORE plugging the appliance back in.
Operation of the AC Outlet
1. Connect the inverter to a functioning 12 volt DC power source as described in this Instruction Manual. 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. Plug the (AC) appliance into the Inverter's 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. 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. 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/500mA DC power to an external USB-powered device.
Remember to disconnect the inverter from any power source when not in use.
