Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Carrying Case: This power
inverter comes with a padded vinyl case that allows you to carry the inverter,
the DC cable, the cigarette lighter adapter, and the owner's manual. There is a
Velcro strip that will hold the inverter in place, and another one to secure the
DC cable and cigarette lighter adapter.
Low Battery Shutdown: As the
battery discharges, its voltage decreases. When the power inverter senses that
the voltage at its DC input has dropped to 10.5 volts, the inverter shuts down.
3-prong AC Outlet/ USB Outlet:
Through its AC outlet, the XPower
inverter is capable of powering most 120 V AC products that use 140 W (about
1.15 amps) or less. The XPower can also power or charge most consumer
electronics that have USB power.
Overload Shutdown: If you
connect an AC load that is rated too high or a load that draws excessive surge
power, the inverter shuts down.
Over Temperature Shutdown: The
inverter shuts down automatically if it exceeds its safe operating temperature.
High Input Voltage Shutdown: If
a defective battery charging system causes the battery voltage to rise to a
dangerously high level, the inverter shuts down
Using the DC Cable with Airplane
Power Plug: The supplied DC Cable that comes allows you to use inverter on
certain airlines and aircrafts. The current list of airlines,
aircrafts, and passenger class that are compatible with this cable is as follows:
737-800, 767-300, MD-80,MD-11
