About the PowerDrive PD1500

Use household devices in your vehicle

You want to use your household AC-powered devices in your vehicle, but you've run into a basic problem: cars, vans, and trucks use DC power. PowerDrive's power inverters convert your vehicle's DC power to AC power, allowing you to run your household devices from your vehicle's power supply.

Use household devices in your vehicle

You want to use your household AC-powered devices in your vehicle, but you've run into a basic problem: cars, vans, and trucks use DC power. PowerDrive's power inverters convert your vehicle's DC power to AC power, allowing you to run your household devices from your vehicle's power supply.

1500 watts of continuous AC power

PowerDrive's PD1500 inverter connects directly to your vehicle's battery, delivering up to 1500 watts of continuous AC power. The inverter features four 3-prong AC outlets, one USB power port, and a USB-C power port, so you can charge or run multiple devices simultaneously, including everything from from phones and laptops to small refrigerators and microwave ovens. Safety features include over-temperature and overload protection, plus high/low voltage shutoff. 

Remote control

The PD1500's Bluetooth capability allows the inverter to connect to Android and iOS smartphones. PowerDrive's free app lets you remotely access features and settings. The inverter also features a removable control panel with a 9' cord which allows you to locate the control panel away from the inverter. 

Note: When connecting this inverter to your vehicle's battery, you should use suitable power and ground cables of the shortest possible length — see the Owner's Guide for recommended gauges. The package includes 3-foot cables for testing.

Q
If I run this in the cabin of my truck is there any noise to it while it's running?
[ NICHOLAS  Oct 13, 2017 ]

We don't have information on the noise levels of this unit, but I was able to see that there is a "low noise mode" that can be turned on when using the smartphone controller app for this so there is a way to turn it down if it is noisy.

Little to no noise. I have mine on a sailboat, and dont hear a thing. If the fan does kick in it sounds like a computer fan.

Q
What gauge wiring does this use for the power and ground?
[ Dave  Apr 06, 2017 ]

A
I'm afraid the gauge of the included power and ground cables is not provided from the manufacturer. You may want to try contacting PowerDrive directly for more details. You can reach their support department at 866-622-7979. If you would like to discuss further, feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
