The PV400USB 400W PowerVerter Ultra-Compact Car Inverter provides 400 watts of portable power for charging and operating multiple devices in your car, truck, boat or RV. It converts 12V DC power into standard 120V AC power to run a wide variety of electronics, such as laptops, smartphones, tablets, game systems, portable TVs and DVD players, MP3 players and GPS units, as well as low-power lights, camping accessories, battery rechargers for small battery-operated power tools and mobile office equipment.

The PV400USB features two AC outlets, a 2.1A USB port and a 1.0A USB port. Just plug the DC input jack with convenient 3-foot cord into the 12V cigarette lighter socket in your vehicle, or use the battery cables to connect to your battery - always connect red to red and black to black. Press the on/off button, and the unit is ready to operate. Easy-to-read LED lets you know the inverter is receiving power from the battery.

To prevent you from running down your car battery, the PV400USB turns off automatically when the input voltage falls to 10V. Likewise, the unit will also shut down if it gets too hot (for instance, because your connected devices exceed 400 watts). A built-in ventilation fan keeps the interior cool during extended use. The durable plastic housing is engineered to withstand the rigors of road trips, campouts, business trips and family vacations. No maintenance is required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tripplite 400 watt inverter is a nice unitExcellent unit. Quiet, cool, powerful. A little clumsy with the external wiring posts. Insertable wires would have been better, but this is a minor criticism. I had my Dell Precision laptop running for hours, and it never got hot. The laptop power brick got warm (expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 400 tripp Lite UltraI was told the 400 watt output was available through the cigarette plug. No. Only through the hard wire to the battery. Very disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid CraftsmanshipAs a mobile technician, I need to be able to print to my printer, charge my laptop or even charge my cordless drill battery. The 400 watts is just enough for me to get done what I need to and even extra things like lighting Christmas lights on a trailer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again and againThe product was easy to use and simple to set up. When it was set up it worked as described and provided all of the power my kids needed to run 2 computer at the same time in the back seat of my car for 20 hours. Can't recommend this product more!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful but compact inverterI am using this Tripplite inverter to power an end zone count down clock for a soccer field. The inverter is very compact, yet very powerful. It is very durable and although I do not have many hours of use with it, the inverter seems to work quite well.
