What can I power with a 500 watt inverter?
Just so, what can you run on a 500 watt inverter?
Volts (120) x Amps = Watts
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.
