DC-AC Car Power Inverters

DC AC car power inverters are devices that convert DC (direct current) power from a vehicle’s battery to AC (alternating current) power needed by most electronic devices.


How do DC AC car power inverters work?

DC AC car power inverters work by using a unidirectional DC power source to mimic an AC power source. They are essentially oscillators that switch the polarity of the DC power source to create a modified or pure sine wave, required by most consumer electronics.


Inverters will usually have an adapter that you can plug into the car’s cigarette lighter or accessory jack, and an AC outlet or USB port from which you can power your device.


What are DC AC car power inverters used for?

DC AC car power inverters are used by motorist, and are especially useful for long distance journeys. Typical devices you can use with a DC AC car power inverter include:

  • Televisions
  • Gaming systems
  • DVD and Blu-ray players
  • Cooking equipment
  • Power tools
  • Catalytic heaters
