Power inverter wattage plays a key role in deciding which unit an
application requires. Wattage specifications will determine what type and
the overall number of devices that can be plugged in and drawing off a single
inverter. Smaller watt inverters are normally used for
charging laptops, cellular phones, televisions and even small kitchen
appliances from a direct current (DC) battery source. Knowing which
inverter to buy can take some thought to ensure that the desired
applications meant to use the inverter are actually receiving the correct
Peak Watt Power
Another aspect to bear in mind when shopping for power inverters is the peak
load power rate or peak watt power. This is typically measured as double
the maximum continuous wattage for a power inverter unit. It allows for
any extra or overload from drawing devices up to the peak watt number. Appliances or devices with motors, heating coils or inconsistent drawing watts will almost always peak at some point in their use.
