**What can**a

**500 watt inverter**run? A

**500 watts inverter**has enough

**power**to run a small refrigerator, laptops, tablets, cellphones, digital cameras,

**power**tools, game consoles, TVs, DVD players, and other low-powered devices.

Just so, what can you run on a 500 watt inverter?

Volts (120) x Amps = Watts

Appliance | Est. Watts |
---|---|

Refrigerator | 500 |

1/2″ Drill | 700 |

Vacuum Cleaner | 750 |

Coffee Maker | 800 |

Similarly, what can you run on 500 watts? Most LEDs, light bulbs, small hand electric tools, portable computers, phone battery chargers, electric fans, portable fridge, mobile radios, SLR cameras, televisions and similar appliances use less than **500 watts**.

Keeping this in consideration, how many amps does a 500w inverter use?

It is the actual load watts, not the **inverter** rating or (**inverter** size) that counts. So a 1500 watt **inverter** with a **500** watt load **would** be 50 (25) **Amps**, not 150 (75) **Amps**.

What will a 600 watt inverter run?

A typical 600w **inverter can** be used to power TV sets, sound system, CFL lights, LED lights, standard desktop computer, laptop, box fan, and other mid-sized home appliances. On a remote work site, it **can** power a battery charger, portable nail gun, and a 250w drill.
