Power inverters are electronic devices used for converting low-voltage direct currents (DC) from solar- or wind-charged batteries to household alternating currents (AC) usually with 115 volts. They allow standard household appliances and other electrical equipment to be used in cars, RVs, and trucks . They can be operated using solar power that provides cleaner energy at lower cost. They are ideal for outdoor trips and vacations, allowing users to use video game consoles, televisions, and even oven toasters while on the road. With power inverters, electrical equipment and appliances need not be hooked into power grids during outdoor travels.
