About the PowerDrive PD1500
Use household devices in your vehicle
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 and two USB power ports, 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.
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.
